I wasn't directing my last post at you. You don't strike me as being very happy where you currently live. You got a problem with me?

And as far as wanting a change, well, let's just put it this way. I have lived in more different cities than I can even keep count of at this point in my life. 8 different states. East coast, West coast, Gulf coast, and points in-between. I'm pretty familiar with "simply wanting a change".

Are there any states in the South that don't really use the word "y'all?" If so, maybe I'll consider them.

I hear people say "y'all" on the West coast. I can never really tell with you if you're just trolling, or you are actually serious with statements like this. Who really cares if people say "y'all", "you guys", "youse", or "yinz"? I can pick out regional dialects in ANY region that I find annoying, but I don't let that solely determine where I'm going to live. For instance, where I currently live in Washington state, people say "beg" when referring to a bag. It drives me nuts, but I still love where I live, because things like that are trivial and really don't mean much when it comes down to a quality of living in any given region. At least that's how it works for me. It must really be inhibiting to let little things like that make or break the deal on where you want to live.

No. So you shouldn't come down here.

Sorry, we all say y'all. Sure gonna miss not seeing you here.
I'm sure youse, you'uns, and yinz are more appealing to your ears.
