Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don't "HAVE" them, you "PITCH" them.
---------------
Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up "a mess."
---------------
Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of "yonder."
---------------
Only a Southerner knows exactly how long "directly" is - as in: "Going to town; be back directly."
---------------
Even Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for the white, granular sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl in the middle of the table.
---------------
All Southerners know exactly when "by and by" is. They might not use the term, but they know and understand the concept well.
----------------
Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solice for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add a large banana puddin!
----------------
Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "right near" and "a right far piece." They also know that "just down the road" can be 1 mile or 20.
----------------
Only a Southerner both knows and understands the difference between a redneck, a good ol' boy, and po' white trash.
----------------
No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.
----------------
A Southerner knows that "fixin" can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adverb.
----------------
Only Southerners make friends while standing in lines. We don't do "queues," we do "lines;" and when we're "in line," we talk to everybody!
----------------
Put 100 Southerners in a room and half of them will discover they're related, even if only by marriage.
----------------
In the South, "y'all" is singular..."all y'all" is plural.
----------------
Southerners know grits come from corn and know how to eat them.
----------------
Every Southerner knows tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, and coffee are perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast food; and that fried green tomatoes are not a breakfast food.
----------------
When you hear someone say, "Well, I caught myself lookin'," you know you are in the presence of a genuine Southerner!
----------------
Only true Southerners say "sweet tea" and "sweet milk." Sweet tea indicates the need for sugar and lots of it -- we do not like our tea unsweetened. "Sweet milk" means you don't want buttermilk.
----------------
And a true Southerner knows you don't scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 mph on the freeway. You just say, "Bless her heart" and go your own way.
----------------
To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your Southerness: Take two tent revivals and a dose of sausage gravy and call me in the morning. Bless your heart!
----------------
And to those of you who are still having a hard time understanding all this Southern stuff, bless your hearts, I hear they are fixin' to have classes on Southerness as a second language over at Texas A&M!
----------------
And for those that are not from the South but have lived here for a long time, all y'all need a sign to hang on y'all's front porch that reads "I ain't from the South, but I got here as fast as I could."

After reading all those "southern" phrases it is clear that Delaware is actually a southern state, not "mid-Atlantic". Or maybe so many southerners have migrated up here for jobs that the border has smudged clear into Texas? :?
Did the list mention a "fur piece"? Not something a lady wears around her neck, rather you have to go "a fur piece."
