uuummmm, i'm on a first name basis with ALL the employees at my local hardware store. But to be fair, DH is in the homebuilding business and quite the do it yourselfer, so I am in there weekly to expediate some project.

gosh, I have seen many, "you know you are a redneck if...." and they can be quite funny, just can't think where they are now, but it is quite early and I am only on the first cuppa......

You might be a (girl) redneck if instead of waiting for DH to do it, you replace your storm doors hydraulic door stopper with a big Black and Decker cordless screw driver.By the way I did a perfect job too.

How about the famous redneck wedding?

If we weren't meant to eat animals, then why are they made of meat?

I think I have a somewhat mistaken view of what a redneck is. I thought they were like the ne'er-do-wells in Deliverance. At the risk of asking a stupid question, what makes someone a redneck?

I think a redneck is someone that lives in the country some who works on a farm or ranch working outside.Redneck is the sunburn they get on the back of their necks.They listen to country/western music.I would call the guys in Deliverance, Hillbillies.Im sure some else here can explain it better than I can.

According to Jeff Foxworthy, a redneck is someone with "a glorious absence of sophistication." Kinda sounds right to me.

I live in a wealthy community in Connecticut, but I still walk across the street to my mailbox barefoot in the summer carrying my 3-year old on my hip.

You can take the girl out of the trailer, but you can't take the trailer out of the girl, I guess. LOL!
Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!

I was outside by the pool in the early afternoon and my face turned very red. Does that count?

I am not a redneck - however - I live in Kentucky, on top of a looonng hill, I have a hound dog and my neighbors down the street like to put their couch in the driveway when they have get-togethers. A lot of people that live near me love to sit on the front porch and talk to whoever walks by.

I hope this doesn't offend any DCers but when I think redneck, I think of
trailer parks
fat people in little trucks
buffets at the Golden Corrall
furniture in the front yard or driveway
bad teeth
"freedom isn't free" bumper stickers

OK -
