Not so sure that slipper was lost by a southern flip flops would be more like it. There is always a chance that Cinderella may have discarded hers at the magic kingdom. I hear she is wearing Jimmy Choo now.

just a quick note. I am 3rd generation Floridian. I do not have a southern draw, I have never said "ALL Y'All" (that would the same as "You's Guy's") it is simply y'all. For my northern friends it stands for You All.

As far as Cinderellas slipper, well I promise its not a flip flop. Last time I was in Boston I saw more women wearing flip flops than I did when I was working at Disney.

I gotta say it drives me nuts that people move to Florida from some cold ass northern state then proceed to complain that there is nothing but necks. Well guess what, we are not all necks. Some of us are actualy cultured. Some of us know fine wine and up scale dining as well if not better than "You's Guy's". So please take your sterio types and GO HOME!

Snooker take a deep breath.. its all going to be okay. Florida is full of transplants from all over the place. Makes it more interesting I think. I think its nearly impossible to stereotype a floridian since we are such a diverse population. As far as footwear flip flops , crocs, and sandals are a "shoe in" this time of year (pardon the pun) in our wardrobe. I am guessing that necks meant red necks. I did not see any reference made by anyone of that nature. As far as Hi y'all I think its a charming greeting.

hey check this out.

Likely, everyone appreciated your "quick note."

But, you left a few things unexplained.

"I am 3rd generation Floridian. I do not have a southern draw,"
Is it not until the 4th generation that all y'all develop a DRAWL - or, were you talking about drawing a six-shooet?

"(that would the same as "You's Guy's")"
That is a Brooklyn (New York) term and it is spelled "YOUSE GUYS."

"Last time I was in Boston I saw more women wearing flip flops than I did when I was working at Disney."
You should keep in mind that Boston is a "Port of Entry" so, if you were near the docks, you might have seen one of the ships from South America discharging the summer workers.
If you were in the Market area, it is likely you had a few Sam Adams' and really saw Gucci sandals.

By the way, if you had stopped in New York City and looked at the women there, you would have seen what the rest of the gals in America will be wearing five years from now.
Although, here in South New York - especially in the Miami area - there are plenty of women who follow the New York trends and are only a year or two behind.

"there is nothing but necks."
No one who ever eats a Florida clam will ever be so foolish as to think it is a "little neck."

"take your sterio types and GO HOME! "
Did you mean "STEREO?"

Just wondering if the "Spelling Books" in Florida schools are as up-scale as you seem to be?

Wow midcape, do you always do the editing here? I mean you must the spelling bee winer. Oops i mean winner. I really don't care what women in NewYork wear. Nor do I care what the women in Miami wear. I was simply saying that women all over wear flip flops. Yep even in fasion rich New York.

By the way its not little New York in Miami. That would be Ft. Lauderdale (please check my spelling on that). Miami is known as little Cuba.

I absolutely LOVE that my beloved Florida is a melting pot. An absolute mish-mosh of cultue. What I don't love is when people come here and then tell us how much better is was were they came from. Or that the people here are all country bumpkins (do you like that better than neck?) If thats your oppinion (check my spelling pls midcape) then yes please go home.

I suppose in this I am as guilty as midcape. I mean I did classify all northerners as those who say its better up north. Truth is I have met a lot of nice pilgrims (midcape?sp). I should not sterEo type all of you. Just as you shouldf not sterEo type floridians (i know midcape the f should be capitalized) as people who say "y'all" or wear glass flip flops.

Dovestreasure. I am just fine. No need for deep breathing. Yes we have fantastic weather in florida and that makes people want to wear comfortable footwear. But I am sure you know as well as I do that midcape was trying to be funny with his "I am just learning to speak southern" comment. That is what i am talking about. You know darn well he was trying to say that floridians "speak southern".

Dove - I am glad you think your "southern dictionary" thing is funny. Only place I have ever heard people speak like that is Mississippi (check the speling midcape).

Y'all can say what you want about me and my spelling I really don't care. But if you think were you came from is better than here..........GO HOME!

Snooker you are correct in saying that we do not speak in what most would call a traditional southern accent. Even though geographically we are further south then other states , Georgia, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Mississippi have that wonderful southen twang in their speech. I am not a native Floridian, but have lived here for over thirty years. When I head back to New York , or when family visits , they joke and say that I sound southern. I feel pretty proud when they say that. I tease them back and make fun of their "New Yawk " accent.

When I first moved to Florida there were some expressions that were foreign to me. For example " I slept in" I wondered what ever did that mean?We always called it sleeping late. Another that made me chuckle was the referring to raising a middle finger as "shooting a bird" The first time I heard anyone say that was while i was working at a pre-school. A child ran up frantically and said another child had shot a bird. I thought OMG!!!!! We always called it "giving someone a finger" Another that I found peculiar was " Can I go with" I kept wondering why they left off the last word. Another was when cleaning up I heard another teacher tell the children to "put the Toys up" We always said "Put your toys away "or "clean up your toys" There are no doubt that some expressions are regional to different parts of the country.

I am one transplanted Floridian that loves Florida.. The summer heat is a scorcher though , but its worth dealing with for the amazing climate we have the rest of the year.

Dove - A lot of those expressions ou mentioned are what comes of a mish-mosh of cultures. I really am glad of that mish-mosh. It makes Florida what it is. I am sure that most that move to Florida from somewere up north tha sole reason is the weather. I can't say i blame them. I start complaining about cold when it gets in the 60's. My stupid rant was strictly related to the fact that SOME move here and then proceed to tell every one how much better it was were they came from. If I would have done as you said....take a deep breath....I would not have even posted what I did. I am just soooooo proud of my heritage(sp) and i love this state. My greatgrandfather was a true "Florida Cracker" and founded the town of Ft. Walton before moving to what is now Orlando (from what I read cattle ranges were healthier in central florida than that of the pan-handle). It just urks me when SOME northerners who know nothing of the history of Florida just assume we are all country bumpkins. Sorry if I pissed anyone off.

Oh and glad you are enjoying beautiful Florida enough to stay for 30 years. Does that mean your children are natives now???

My greatgrandfather was a true "Florida Cracker" and founded the town of Ft. Walton before moving to what is now Orlando (from what I read cattle ranges were healthier in central florida than that of the pan-handle).

I would like to thank your great grandfather through you. I have a great fondness for Ft Walton area. I have some very dear friends that live in Ft Walton and surrounding areas. For three years I was making a monthly pilgrimage to visit them and they became an extended family. Its only the high cost of gas that has kept me away. It is lovely there and a much more layed back lifestyle then Orlando.Some of my happiest memories are with my panhandle family.

My daughter is a florida native indeed. I moved here after falling head over heels in love with Walt Disney World. I would vacation in florida three times a year( not just Orlando.. Miami , The Keys, The Gulf Coast) and I just felt this was where I belong. I would have loved to see Orlando when it was a sleepy little town. There has been so much growth here , but I still manage to enjoy natural florida when I can.

It just urks me when SOME northerners who know nothing of the history of Florida just assume we are all country bumpkins. Sorry if I pissed anyone off.

Its okay, you were just being passionate about something that means a great deal to you.

Lighten up... and, while y'all are at it, wise up a little too.
Speaking "Southern" is not limited to Florida and it is quite charming.
It is much better than having to learn to speak Canadian.
And the weather for learning is a little nicer too.
Even close-minded people will have to agree with that.
Y'all must remember that many people who are not "from" Florida did their best to get here as fast as they could.
Y'all probably know some of the charming terms that all y'all use here; but, in case y'all have forgotten, here is a short sampling:

Southerners know how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up "a mess."

Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "right near" and "a right far piece." They also know that "just down the road" can be 1 mile or 20.

If y'all ever get a little embarrassed by Southerness: Take two tent revivals and a dose of sausage gravy and call me in the morning. Bless y'all's heart!

If y'all know of anyone still having a hard time understanding all this Southern stuff, ... bless all y'all's hearts, they are fixin' to have classes on Southernness as a second language!

Try to keep in mind that "Southern" is not the only dialect used in America.
George Bernard Shaw once described the United States and Great Britain as "two countries separated by a common language."

And, when y'all reference "necks," do not forget there are some Nawthe'n types that are known as Mooncussers, Swamp Yankees, and Down Easters and all of these had a pretty nice tradition that was known as "bundling."

Last, but certainly not least, all y'all should forever be grateful for the kindness and generosity of all y'all's Northern brothers and sisters. After all y'all got the stuffin' kicked outta ya, we provided medical care and food and welcomed all y'all back with open arms.

Mebbe the Nawth ain't so bad after all.

Hey Capesie. First I think you are gay and second shut the fuck up and go the fuck back up "Nawth".

I am pretty sure you did not fight in the civil war. Nor did you "help anyone with food or meds" after it was over. That war was WAY before anyone here was even a twinkle in the eye of there maker.

You gotta be the biggest idiot in the world to bring that stupid shit up. Pay attention to the thread. You are exactly who I am talking about. So please.....

Shut the fuck up and go the fuck home. Ass!
