The Difference Between Here and There.

Friendliness is not a characteristic unique to the South. Although the case can be made that we're better at it than most. Maybe it's just more prevalent here. You hear about it all the time. "Everyone is just so friendly down South." Yes, yes, thank you, we know.
Here are a few things we're not good at. We're not good at getting your order right at the drive-thru. We're not good at paying local school teachers a reasonable salary. We're not good at developing responsive local government, unless you happen to be rich. We're not good at driving. We're not good at respecting each other's differences. And if we could do something about the weather, we wouldn't be good at that either.
So the next time you find yourself standing in line to renew your driver's license, take the time to say hi to the person standing next to you, cause that's friendly, and we're good at that.
