You might be a redneck if.......

So I'm watching this show the other night, and the sheriff is investigating the hijacking of a cattle truck (as if that's not redneck enough), and he's going over the contents of the trailer with the rancher. 42 market steers at 36,xxx pounds.

And, instantly I know that's not nearly enough weight for that many market steers. I'm guessing most city folks wouldn't have caught that


Feel free to add your own "you might be a _______" moments

That was Longmire, a show my DH and I both LOVE (if you haven't read the books, they are great, too).

Whenever I tell our extended families back in the cities of SE WI what we've been doing up here in the wilds of the UP, it always sounds like a redneck joke . Ex: you know our kids are rednecks because the first day of deerhunting is a school holiday...

I might be a city slicker because:

I have NO IDEA what either of you are talking about...

Telling your boss you were late for work because you got stuck behind a tractor is a legitimate excuse

How about - you might be a redneck if you know what " dark thirty" means.

30 minutes after dark

There are so many things I have learned in the 18 years that I have know my DH! He is from a very small dual town in southern MO about 15 minutes from Arkansas.

I consider myself to be in a rather contented self-imposed exile.

Jokes aside, I've learned that somebody from my background shouldn't use the term redneck, lest I offend anybody.

Yep. Lots of tractors out today because so many are doing their first cutting of hay. It's late because of all the rain we have had. I don't have to worry because my boss would understand that excuse since I work on a farm .

Although WE don't qualify as rednecks, lol, my DD went to HS where one of the local kids in her graduating class drove his HUGE John Deere tractor to Project Graduation and parked it in the parking lot. So funny to see him pull out when I went to pick her up at 6:00 am.

LOL Yes! Here if you're late because of a train or tractor, the boss doesn't care. "That's no excuse..."
