I can never understand for the life of me as to why a lot of southerners have sooo much HATE towards the state of Maryland to the point of denying the state of being a southern state.....

I guess you forgot the FACT the Maryland was never a Confederate state and the FACT that the Mason-Dixon line wasn't created to be a cultural divide between the North and the South.
I think mostly everyone agrees Maryland is part of the Mid-Atlantic region.

I just don't feel that in the south. To me once you start getting out of the NOVA suburbs people just seem to get nicer. I've always used the gas stations in an area as a litmus test. I mean...obviously gas station employees aren't in six figure jobs...they probably are low(er) on the socioeconomic totem pole and they (usually) aren't transplanted residents. I've always felt like these people are the real gauge for an area...and the attendants i've dealt with outside of the DC suburbs are much nicer than those i've encoutnered up throughout the northeast. That being said...my random sample of gas station employees, from NYC on down into DC through Roanoke...home in Brisol, VA and further south down 81, through Chatt and into ATL and further, seem to become MUCH more hospitable and friendly beyond DC.


But again...all IMO and without and real merit...just one guys experiences.
hospitable and friendly?????

I am sorry but arguing and disrespecting people that accepts the Fact that Maryland and DC is in the South does not equate to Friendliness and Hospitality.....

Disrespect and Biased Hate should never ever be defined as being Friendly and Hospitable.....

I've tried to reason with this kid in the past...I think he has Tourette's or something. The only thing I can be certain of about this kid is that he loves being a northeasterner. When I think of a diehard Yankee...I think of this kid. I'll bet he sits in his bedroom at night and romances over joe torre pictures...you know, because Torre managed the YANKEES and all.

Ya know I really have a Hard time believing that you are originally from PA because people from PA/NJ have the common knowledge and lack arrogance to understand and accept the state of Maryland as a Southern State......

It is usually people from the deep south that get offensive whenever they hear someone say that Maryland is a Southern state as if Maryland is some rotten crap hole of the United States that is not worthy of being part of the south.......

I swear Maryland has got to be the Most Criticized and/or Hated state among a lot of southerners.......

Dude.......did you just send me a private message asking if we could go on a gay date in the northeast? I know you love being a northeasterner but i don't roll that way. That's cool that you consider Maryland the northeast though. I think the rest of us do to.
