Howdy ya'll

So I stumbled on this community and there's a story that needs to be shared.

Back in 2003 I took a huge road trip leaving from Houston, Texas going all the way up to NYC, Canada, Ohio and various places between here and there. On my trip I noticed something that people always talk about - but I never believed.

There's this small thing called Southern Hospitality. I just figured it was part of everyone's life - but when I got North of the Mason Dixon line I did notice a change in the way people were. I don't want to make it sound like I got disrespected or mistreated by any Northerns, because I didn't, but while in the South I had people coming up to me and asking if I needed help. If I was pulled over on the side of the road looking at my map trying to figure out if this way would be better than that way, in the South people would pull over and ask if I needed directions, gas, or a cell phone. In the North that never happened.

For those who just think that being hospitaible is a way of life, you're right. You're right as long as you're refering to the South.
