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."

Pause....

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?

They forgot to tell them to increase air speed so they could see Allah faster.

Very funny Jim. Thanks for sharing.

Hey JoJo...
I'm still searching all my cornbread recipes for one that has the ingredients in it that you remember! I'll send it to you as soon as I find it!

Glad you can appreciate a little southern humor! One more reason I like ya...!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming by!


Hey Gen...
I'm glad you liked the post this morning. I do what I can to bring a smile or bit of humor to the table every day!

Thanks so much for coming by today!


Hey Tony...
Good to see ya today! I imagine that telling them to hurry would really be unnecessary, don't you? Could be they were so rattled they hit the accelerator instead of the gas!

Sort of a polite way of telling them to "kiss off", if you know what I mean?

Thanks for the visit today, buddy!


Hey Momlady...
I'm happy that you liked it! So, are you going to post a couple of before and after pics of the condition of your tan,or are you going to wait until you get back from the cruise?

I think you should consider doing that...for us poor souls that have to stay here and deal with the hind end of Winter!

Thanks so much for coming by today!


Hey Ben...
I'm happy you got some enjoyment out of the story and don't worry...we won't tell anyone that you may be a redneck in hiding!

Besides, you probably have a lot of company...!

Thanks for coming by today, buddy!


Hey K...
You and Momlady take care on your trip to the warmer climes, OK? We wouldn't want anything to happen to ya!

Hey, I do hope you guys are staying warm up there! Enjoy!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey AV...

As a pilot, I should be appaled.

As a Southern Pagan, however,I love the multiplicity...

Slainte, Uncle Hermit!!!

Frugal Canadian Hermit said...

lol.

HermitJim said...

Hey Cyg...
Even pilots would have to have enough sense to go by the old saying "When in Rome...", know what I mean?

Can't imagine flying into the heart of redneck country and using a phrase like that! But then, that's just me!

Thanks for the visit!


Hey Hermit...
Glad you got a kick out of it!

Take care...abd thanks for the visit!
