I never thought that I would say this...but I really miss Eastern North Carolina. It wasn't the greatest place on earth, but I do miss the friends that I left behind....and the BBQ!! I recently moved to GA from NC and today I just had a craving for Brunswick Stew....not any Brunswick Stew, but the stew that I used to get at a place called Parker's Barbeque. Anyone else "homesick" for a certian place?

I've lived in the same basic area my whole life. I am the reverse of homesick....I guess you could say....sick of home, haha. If I had the money and/or work elsewhere, I would be long gone. Way too hectic this city life is.

It's funny...if I could actually move to another state, it would be North Carolina. I think I'd head to the Lake Lure area, or Asheville.

I am so sick of Pennsylvania, and rednecks...I have had enough of them to last a lifetime, I would love to move to a cabin in the woods and become a hermit.

I am homesick every day for the home I grew up in, and the people I knew then.

Apparantly, nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina.

Isis, if you're sick of rednecks, come to Australia and experience our yobbo's and bogans. They're quite delightful!!!!

I live about 500 metres from the hospital I was born in. My family lives about 30km away.

I would love to move to the Outer Banks, N.C. someday. Specifically the town of Nags Head, where one of my best friends lives. If I had the money now, I'd buy her father's old house, which is up for sale now, but it needs work too. He built a beautiful new home and is trying to unload his old house. I don't think that I will ever get to buy a house there anyway, because my hubby has other plans of building a house in Erie county.
I love rednecks. I am almost one myself, but I don't like Nascar, so that excludes me from the club.

Hey, say what you will about rednecks, but you have to admit they are ambitious.

LOL well if your sick of rednecks North Carolina is the last place to move. Trust me you'd like living in Asheville for about 5 minutes. The scenery may be pretty but if you don't like rednecks imagine that plus pot smoking hippies. I have no problem with either but I know how ya are. Maybe we can buy retirement homes close by to each other pitt so we can enjoy the afternoon cold one(s) lol...........

I think there are different categories of rednecks.

I have this group of them -that live in this town...they have a name for them- I don't want to even say what they call themselves (they have a real club)- because it would give them attention, they think they rule this area, because they have lived here their whole lives....they all are carbon copies of each other- they hunt-anything that breathes-with any means they can to kill it....they all drive 4-wheel drive trucks- and go out "muddin", and they have their little logos on all their vehicles. The guys all work at some factory, and the girls are either nurse's aides, or are going to school to be an LPN, or are a hairdresser.

What is tragic ..is that 3 of the kids that hung out with this group were just killed 2 months ago...because of utter stupidity. One of them had just bought a new vehicle and they were out spotting deer and speeding,(and I heard they were drinking-but I think that was covered up) and they went out of control and hit the guard rails, and they all were ejected from their vehicles because nobody was wearing a seat belt.

The reason I have a HUGE problem with them, is they belong to the volunteer firehall across from me, and they talk like pigs- and they take the mufflers off their vehicles and drive up and down the street- and they do it on purpose because they know I have a business, and they are a bunch of inconsiderate jerks. It is coming to a giant hault- because they are going to lose their licenses soon.

I can not understand people who deliberately make noise, just to bug other people- and people they don't even know. I don't even know them, but I have witnessed them urinating under the street light- in front of my house- because they were so drunk...and have seen them do other various pain in the butt stuff....

If North Carolina is that full of them, then I definately will stay away from there....I try and live my life- and not pay attention to them- my husband and son- hate them...and they look at Craig's List every night at the real estate section, trying to get me to move somewhere else, but I don't want to. I have alot of friends here that aren't rednecks, and I love my house and my business....but when people make you miserable for no reason...it is sickening, and I have had enough of it.

I honestly think that Rednecks are going to take over the Earth...I really do believe they out number any other group of people.

That's truly horrible about the 3 killed. Are you saying they were rednecks only because of what they were doing? I know many a hunter who isn't necessarily a redneck. Just out of curiousity would you turn away business if someone from the south wanted to stay at your b and b and you perceived them as rednecks because you'd be turning away a big portion of any potential southerners. That's the equivalent of my owning a business and saying I wouldn't do business with anyone from up north. Congrats for once again pigeon holing and not thinking before saying something ignorant like a lot of hate groups do. So you're judging all rednecks based on the actions of a select few? How do you marginalize and make huge vague assumptions based on only a few? Hate is a pretty strong word.......

WHOA.....sorry to hear about the 3 that died. But are you sure that you don't live in NC????? That sounds just like a group that hangs out where I lived. And Motley is right...if you are sick of rednecks....stay away from NC. Don't get me wrong...NC is a BEA-utiful place...the folks are friendly and the food (BBQ) is awesome. But....rednecks galore.....NASCAR and everythin'!!!! By the way....I think that pic is my old car.........

I never said I'd turn business away.....where did you come up with that? I said my husband and my son- hate that group of idiots.

They label themselves rednecks....they wore camo suits to the Prom...they are proud of it. They have a whole myspace page - that's where I found them- they have pictures of dead deer, and they smeared it's blood all over the place.

I don't discriminate against any group of people.

I have had all kinds of people stay with me, and I'll say one thing about people in general...it's the people who don't have much money...that are the most appreciative people, and the people I have liked the most...they are so use to people treating them badly, that when I get ahold of people and treat them nice...they don't know what to do...I give people all kinds of free stuff when they stay, they get treated like kings and queens.

I will say that I am changing my policies for local people...because I have always been really laid back on when people check in....but I have had 2 local people...and they were total rednecks....that never showed up, and then when I called them...they wouldn't answer their phone, so now they have changed my whole laid back approach to when people check in.

I think there are rednecks in every state....I swear they will take over the world.

I'll take rednecks over the type of people that live in the northeast(at least my area). Every time I have been to the Carolina's, Florida, or Minnesota on vacation, the people are so much nicer than here. For being one of the most expensive places in America to live, it can't have a worse group of selfish, crude, obnoxious, stuck-up, and downright rude people. The further west or south I travel, the nicer the people get. I'm sure north is better too....I just rarely go that way. Heck, I bet east(at the bottom of the Atlantic)would be better!

Yes there are rednecks in every state. Take Geargia for example....they are VERY abundant here....especially the ones that wear camo shorts with flip flops and bright yellow Polos....and let's not forget the camo ball cap that reads "GO DAWGS"!! Now, I have nothing against all rednecks....in fact 2 of my best friends are rednecks (COUNTRY) to the bone and they are 2 of the greatest people on earth. You can trust their word and that is something that you don't find everyday....it is the ignorant, uneducated "redneck" that bothers me....but that is just the way they were raised or the only thing that they know so they stay in that "comfort zone".

But your discriminating against them by making statements that generalize the class.
You'd have no problem accepting money from a class you label as a "group of idiots?" Pretty hypocritical. So your labeling them as rednecks simply because of how they did business with you? Do your homework before making judgmental statements. I personally know of rednecks who appropriately fit the bill and know of rednecks who hunt, fish, watch racing, etc. who are successful businessmen, doctors, lawyers, pharmacists,etc. who think that you probably fit a stereotype to a tee.......

The group of idiots are the group that are harassing me- not every redneck on the planet harasses me.

My Dad hunts, and so does my brother...so I do not classify everyone who hunts as a redneck. Even though that is something I absolutely hate.

I said there are different classifications of rednecks.

There are people that live like rednecks...but they don't act like arrogant a-holes.

Maybe I should change my category of people I am talking about....the people I can't stand are a-holes- and there's no other word for them.

80sRocked-I know what kind of people your talking about too, and that's the other side of the spectrum...I can't stand those people either.
I don't like people who think they are better than other people. I don't think I am better than anyone, and I wouldn't put anyone down based on their income, their sexual orientation, their race... I am talking about specific individuals...not total groups of people I never met.

I judge people based on how each one of them treats me.

My husband is more redneck than me, yet he is a white collar professional. What does not qualify us for 100% redneck-ness is that neither one of us likes Nascar or country music.
What is this club that these "rednecks" belong to in your town? I wouldn't want to p.o. the local volunteer firemen either.

People who live in the south generally have good manners. I like being on vacation in the south, or having to call about a potential trip or whatever, and getting called "ma'am."

My dad has a four wheel drive truck. Does that make him a redneck?

I have friends who go muddin'. Does this mean they're bad people? Should I start calling them rednecks?

And I definitely wouldn't want to p!ss off my local fire department....

There are all sorts of categories of bogans and yobbos, as we call them here.

BOGAN (pronunciation boe-gn) is a term used primarily in Australia to describe a particular section of the working class demographic. This derogatory slang word is a gender-neutral noun; this being important as many bogans tend to gravitate towards one another forming relationships and extended families. A bogan family is not an uncommon phenomena in certain regions. A bogan typically resides in either a low-cost housing estate, government housing or in the outlying regional areas of continental Australia. Generally bogans tend to congregate in areas with little or no features & amenities.

Generally the bogan fits a particular stereotypical image. The perception of what actually constitutes a bogan has been shaped over the years primarily by the media; notable especially are television programs such as Channel 7's Today Tonight and Channel 9's A Current Affair . These programs regularly feature stories of harrowing boganism- including communities under siege from bogan terrorism, and bogans "rorting the system" in relation to welfare benefits and questionable practices. A number of comedy programs have also featured bogans in the past, prime examples being Kylie Mole of The Comedy Company, Poida (bogan pronunciation of the name "Peter") played by Eric Bana, and more recently Bloke Man of the Comedy Inc late shift. Eric Bana's portrayal of the character Poida gained him accolades within the industry and effectively launched his professional acting career. This is one of very few examples of extreme boganism leading to success & wealth.

So now we have a basic understanding of the bogan, we may delve further into the mysterious world of mullets and long-kneck beer bottles in brown paper bags. Traits of the bogan can be summarised by the following points:

• A pronounced lack of dress sense in social situations. Typical bogan attire consists of a flannelette shirt, King Gee stubbie shorts (either blue/khaki), torn or soiled jeans from the 1980's or earlier, and of course double-plug standard issue white thong sandals with black rubber. A bogan's dress sense is not influenced by intended destination/occasion hence the line between workwear and formal wear is often hazy at best. On rare occasions bogans may be spotted wearing enclosed shoes when entering the local RSL to "have a slap on the pokies" or to "get ****ed wif me mates on the veebs (VB)". A female bogan will usually wear a matching ensemble usually consisting of second-hand fashions or products purchased from the discount retail chains Best and Less or Big W.

• A lack of personal hygiene. A bogan will often allow his/her hair to grow into an attractive style named the "mullet" as popularised in the 1980's. A hair cut is a rare event for the bogan, and most styling occurs when the razor is brought out to either a) produce a "skinhead" style cut or b) a "frullet" (front-mullet). Similar styles apply for females, however the female bogan frequently colours her hair auburn. The bogan bathroom usually contains a bar of multi-purpose soap used to both cleaning the family, washing the hair, styling the hair and manicures/pedicures. Whilst most non-bogans will use Eau de Toilette spray as a perfume, the most common boganistic fragrance is "Odour of Toilet". The bogan frequently rosters showers at irregular intervals such as once a week for males and twice for females.

• Distinct vocabulary. The bogan language is somewhat foreign to most English-speaking people. For example in boaglish, the word "shooting" would be pronounced as "shootun". Similarly, the word "look out" is pronounced as "look eet". The boaglish alphabet does not contain the letters "i" or "g", hence the pronunciation of words containing the suffix -ing are simply pronounced -un. Examples include "rootun" (rooting), "fishun" (fishing) and the common phrase "where's me farkun beer woman" (what is the current location of my alcoholic beverage dearest female partner). The boaglish vocabulary is mostly limited to frequent curse-words and mis-pronunciation of common English words. A common bogan trait also includes shortening words. Locations such as the Wyong Leagues Club become the "leaguesy", the Crown Casino becomes the "leaguesy" and females/males such as Sharon/Barry become "Shaz" and "Baz".

• A particular choice in motor vehicle. The bogan usually drives one of two makes of vehicle. Typically this is either a Holden or a Ford . Common bogan variants manufactured by each of these companies include the Holden Commodore (VB-VP models), Holden Kingswood and the Ford Falcon (all models up to the recent EF). Other well known bogan vehicles include early model Datsuns and Toyotas . Bogan accessories include anything HSV/HRT for Holdens, and FPV/FTR for Fords. These vehicles tend to be more prevalent on the roads whilst the V8 supercar races are being held. Drivers often attempt to imitate in heavy traffic their heroes Skaifey (Mark Skaife) and Ambrose (Marcos Ambrose). Bogan vehicles are rarely detailed, and are serviced even less frequently. Most bogan drivers hold animosity towards imported vehicles "farken rice" and are still bitter that the Nissan Skyline beat the Holden and Ford racing teams at Bathurst in the early 90's. Consequently, many bogans believe their VN Commodore has the ability to beat anything with the badge "Ferrari", "Nissan", "BMW M3" or "Pagani". Click here for examples of bogan vehicles.

• Choice in music. The bogan prefers either metal or pub rock. A bogan would suggest that the song Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel would be a more appropriate national anthem than Advance Australia Fair. AC/DC is also a popular choice. Anything Barnesy. Midnight Oil is another classic example of the bogan genre.

• Employment status. The common bogan is either a) not employed or b) a tradesman/labourer. A bogan employee can be spotted kitted up in a fluorescent vest or polo shirt. Unemployed bogans often frequent RSL's/clubs for discount lunches during the day, before continuing on to the local Centrelink office to receive the hard-earned cash of the tax-paying public. This will be followed by a journey to the most convenient bottle shop ("bottlo") to purchase 2x24 cartons ("slabs") of Victoria Bitter ("Veebs") for $60. Also included in this purchase is the all-important packet of Winfield Reds ("Smokes"). The rest of this pension money is budgeted towards the "pokies" at the local pub.

• A poorly-maintained house or unit. As previously mentioned, the bogan often resides in regions of a lower socio-economic standing. Basically, in most cases the bogan is located some way inland from a coastal fringe or major waterway. In the case of Sydney, this has lead to the term "westie" being coined in order to distinguish the boganistic population of the inland western suburbs from the more affluent residents of the east. In the case of NSW/QLD and Victoria, the majority of bogans are located on or west of the Great Dividing Range. Whilst this is not always the case, it is important to note that the concentration of bogans per capita is somewhat higher in these areas. The bogan house usually consists of a number of elements (see below):

The bedroom (for rootun).
The balcony (for smokun/shootun).
The livun room (for watchun telly/smokun/gettun ****ed).
The kitchen (for storun beer).
The combined bathroom/laundry (for washun) .
The shed (for rootun/smokun/shootun/gettun ****ed/storun beer/workun on the commo

However, over the last few years, a new category of bogan has appeared - the CUB, or Cashed Up Bogan. They have somehow managed to climb a step on the social ladder, perhaps through winning lotto or successfuly working in a trade. They tend to live in more expensive housing estates, and like to give their children unusually spelt names, such as Jaxson, Emaley, Typhphinnnii and Jaymes.
Tennis star Leighton Hewitt is considered a very successful CUB.
The TV show Kath and Kim is probably the most reliable example of the CUB.

Yobbos are the kind of people who deliberately like to cause offense through inconsideration, rudeness and general toolitude. Yobbos like to drive hotted up cars through quiet streets, drag race, and blast doof doof music through their car stereos. They are the type that is most likely to shout at and insult random people in the street for being posh (ie wearing reasonably fashionable clothing)

However, having said all that, it's always the people who can barely afford to give are always the most generous when it comes to donating. Yesterday was the Good Friday Royal Children's Hospital Appeal, and as always I was out collecting all day.

One thing I've learnt over the years is that it's the banged up cars that always stop to donate, even if they only have a dollar or two... and it's the people in the new expensive cars that drive straight through, doing their best to ignore you.

I've found that to be very true. Also the same at Halloween---poorer people tend to give out more stuff to kids...

I agree with both of you Petty and Stitch! The rich are 95% greedy a-holes who never donate a dime or give a crap about the needy....it's sad.

So true on the less fortunate giving more. They had a benefit for a cancer patient here in town that was shown on the local news. A kid whose parents had just been turned out of their home donated the entire $1 out of his piggy bank to the cancer patient. It really pulls at your heart strings. Some co-workers and I got together and helped the family get into a rental house and paid for some necessities (clothes, groceries, school supplies, power,furniture)to get them back onto their feet. There's always room and time to help others. On the topic of southern things, Cheerwine is also a treat here in NC lol. I'm thinking it can be ordered online and shipped. I always keep it in the frig plus they have a Cheerwine popsicle for sale by a grocer named Food Lion that's out of this world.......

Motz, that's really awesome of you and your workmates, good on you!
