It where children are taught before the age of 2 to say things like:
  • Yes, sir.
  • No, sir.
  • Yes, ma'mm.
  • No, ma'mm
  • Sir? (replaces "what?" when the child did not hear or understand him)
  • Ma'mm? (replaces "what?" when the child did not hear or understand her)
Very Navy-like:
  • Yes, Sir;
  • No, Sir;
  • Aye, aye, Sir;
  • I'll find out, Sir; and,
  • No excuse, Sir.

As is the case for the military; it's a sign of respect for the uniform and rank, not unlike a civilian respect for ones elders.

As for the noted civilities, such are neither unique to nor born of the US South; such derive from the cultural heritages of those who settled all of the Eastern seaboard.

Yes, I have a habit of associating it with being a southern or a country thing, but I will refer back to my earlier comment . . .

That I can very well understand; rural areas tend to more easily and greatly retain the gentility that is so easily lost in crowds.

Similar behavior is observed in other species of animals as well, so it should come as no surprise that "city slickers," even those transplanted from the rurals, are oft times the more rude.

Well, there are still similarities. They wave at passing cars, and we do too. We just use more fingers.

No greater adventure than being out on opening day of buck season anywhere near a road where deer might be; that's where all of the road hunters from the city are.

Those that do manage to get anything, strap it, undressed, onto the hood of their vehicle for all the world to admire, drive 200 mi. back home, and then later complain about the bitter taste.

That's a great story. My best horse is 21, which is well beyond prime technically, and he's a joy to ride. That one looks a lot like an 18 yr old sorrel gelding I have. Pretty darned amazing to be out on the trails hitting it hard at 42. That's just great. Makes me think maybe me and Cherokee might have more years ahead than I thought.

Rofl. Serves 'em right. I'm not actually a deer hunter (dont tell anyone, in Texas that's much less acceptable than admitting you're gay)... but I did work my way thru college as a meatcutter. They really oughta be dressed in about the first 30 minutes if they don't want it to taste like garbage. Those boys aren't bright.

And, that includes the scent glands.

They're not even close to being a match flame.

Once saw, from a point in between, two groups of road hunters, on parallel roads about 500 yards apart, both start firing in the direction of the opposite road with their elephant guns; damned shame they didn't kill each other.

None came even close to hitting the buck that I was squeezing down on at that very moment, but came close enough to me that I quickly rolled down into a frozen stream bed. Farmer sitting patiently behind a tree about a half mile away picked off the buck with a single shot as it and the two doe tore past him.
