Above All, Be Polite...!
Say what you will about the South, but you have to admit...we can be polite!
We may not always be politically correct, but we are polite! Most Southerners know more ways to tell folks to "Go To Hell" than you can imagine, and they can do it nearly all the time in a polite fashion!
They can also "take care of business" in a polite manner, if you get my drift! From Atlanta...here is an example!
Atlanta Airport - - - Air Traffic Control
Atlanta ATC: "Tower to Saudi Air 511 –
You are cleared to land eastbound on runway 9R"
Saudi Air: "Thank you Atlanta ATC. Acknowledge cleared to land on infidel's runway 9R - Allah be Praised."
Atlanta ATC: "Tower to Iran Air 711 --You are cleared to land westbound on runway 9R."
Iran Air: "Thank you Atlanta ATC. We are cleared to land on infidel's runway 9R. - Allah is Great."
Saudi Air: " ATLANTA ATC - ATLANTA ATC
Atlanta ATC: "Go ahead Saudi Air 511."
Saudi Air: "YOU HAVE CLEARED BOTH OUR AIRCRAFTS FOR THE SAME RUNWAY GOING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. WE ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE. INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE."
Atlanta ATC: "Well bless your hearts. And praise Jesus. Y'all be careful now and tell Allah "hey" for us !
So just remember this! Be prepared, be vigilant, be ready to take care of business...But Always Be Polite!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit in the kitchen for a bit! OK?
