Wow, I am starting to relate to this "profiling" thing you do mike, or not.
Atleast I look good. LOL

It is none of your business what my family does with our money. I am fortunate that my parents can help me out... and I have good taste (plus my car gets great gas mileage, is reliable, and better for the environment).

REW a few post.
I am not sure I would say it is 'uncool', to use a phrase in your generation, to be 'redneck'. You are in the South. I would never move up North near my inlaws and complain about their way of life or historical view of things.

LOL. I love L&O. Mariska Hargitay is Jane Mansfield's daughter. Did you know that? I love that piece of trivia.

UGH, my head is spinning with so much bratty comments.

I live and drive by PHS everyday and see more Mercedes, BMWs, and nice SUVs than I can shake a stick at.
My kids go to the same private school I graduated from in town, and the parking lot has mostly well used cars, and not on the fancy (that I personally prefer) variety.

So trust me, I know about family choices, I make them.

I have never heard the term - prepnecks. My son is on IM. I am going to find out if this is just a Charlotte thing, LOL. I thought those kids looked awfully preppie to be labeled rednecks.

HA HA HA - my son says - they are rich kids all over this region, who wear Abercrombie but act like rednecks, ROFL.

Fun thread! Poor Mike! It must be awful to live where you hate. Hate is such a negative zapper of energy. You have moved to the South. Embrace it! Enjoy it! I hope these teens have not been rude to you. I would never agree with that. But if you don't like the Confederate Flag and you don't like rednecks (my kind, not yours), you have a problem. Your problem could be solved at that church you won't attend. We are not your enemy. We care for you. I hope you can learn to like us.

My car was rated one of the best cars to buy for your children. Why? Safety. If I have the money when I get older, I would also buy my children something decent and safe. I see nothing wrong with it. I had to work for it and get good grades. It wasn't handed to me. Why am I explaining this to you?

Please, stop using church as the answer for everything. Your a country girl and I am not country guy. That doesn't mean I can't live here or should change my ways? Charlotte is a CITY afterall. For the record, I am enjoying it here. Sorry if there is one thing that gets on my nerves. I don't HATE it here! How many times do I have to explain that?

Everyone is so busy jumping all over this kid that you cant see what he is trying to say! He is saying the other kids are the ones who are making THE SOUTH look bad. They are being snide, calling themselves REDNECKS. The reality is they are a bunch of spoiled brats who have never worked hard for anything in their life. I think he is saying that these other kids are insulting those hard working people who have earned the right to be called REDNECK, the ones who made the south what it is today. These spoiled kids call themselves REDNECKS or prepnecks and flash the flag around...but in reality they dont have a clue about the true meaning. They are the ones giving THE SOUTH and the FLAG a bad name. Am I saying it clearly?
