The South is the most "English" part of the country.

Some confuse this with being more formal.

The reason? Simply put, the South had fewer immigrants during the 20th century. It's more able to assimilate newcomers. It is truly a melting pot rather than a salad bowl.

I know what ur saying, the Wal-Marts here in NM look like a welfare office so does the Motor Vehicle Department. I have been to Wal-Marts in Arizona,New Mexico,Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi and they all seem to be the same, except the Wal-Mart in Durango,CO the people seemed a little more better dressed and had the look of money.

Whether with food or with the internet forums, there are bad manners everywhere, aren't there.
