The Rules of North Carolina

1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an freaking idiot.

2. Let's get this straight; it's called a 'dirt road.' I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.
3. They are cattle. That's what they smell like to you. They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don't like it? I-40 goes east and west, I-85 & I-95 go north and south. Pick one.
4. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed. We have $250,000 combines that are driven only 3 weeks a year.


5. So every person in every pickup waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.





6. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of ducks are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.




7. Yeah, we eat North Carolina barbecue & corn on the cob. You really want sushi & caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.




8. The 'Opener' refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the 15th of October.


9. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age.

10. No, there's no 'vegetarian special' on the menu. Order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.

11. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup!!


12. You bring 'coke' into my house, it better be brown, wet, and served over ice. You bring 'Mary Jane' into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.


13. College and high school basketball is as important here as the Lakers and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch.


14. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards -- it spooks the fish.


15. Colleges? Try University of North Carolina, Campbell University, N. C. State University, or East Carolina University. They come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at passing pickups when they come for the holidays.
16. We have lots of folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines, so 'Don't Mess with North Carolina'. If you do, you will get your a** whipped by the best.


North Carolina is the greatest state ever!! If you call North Carolina home, you are blessed,whether you were born here or got here as soon as you could.

Count your blessings!

this made me laugh. So true. I grew up in Harkers Island and went to High School at East Carteret. That's in Beaufort if you don't know HI is just across from Cape Lookout. So much has changed since I lived there. I'm 39 also. Good luck on your dream of living in Beaufort :)
