Snappy comebacks, mean comments and jokes and pranks to pull or not to pull on your Yankee and Northerner Neighbors.
Lets say a Yankee moves into your neighborhood. I know it’s a horrible thought but statisticians estimate that 30% of southerners will be faced with this situation in their lifetimes. Staying away from South Florida will help but is no guarantee that you will avoid what researchers call a northern episode. If you are one of these unlucky people then be prepared for a few changes in your life.
First, your property value is going to go down by at least 10%. 15% if the Yankee is from New Jersey or Massachusetts. This is going to keep you from being able to move which is the very thing people want to do when a Yankee or New Englander comes to town.
Second, you are going to need to have an attorney on retainer because sooner or later the Yankee is going to sue someone. And you have to face the fact that it might be you.
Third, you are going to need to begin some anger management therapy. It’s good to go ahead and start even before they move in. This can reduce the need for the attorney that you have on retainer.
Fourth, you are going to need to find ways to boost your self esteem. Anti depressants are good. Also, if your anger management therapist also does self esteem counseling you may be able to kill two birds with one stone.
If you have children then just expect their vocabulary to increase. Mostly with four letter words but often with offensive phrases that involve family members. Moving private school kids back into public school will at least get them ready and reduce the shock. The money you save can then be used for therapy and attorney fees.
Getting rid of the Yankee will actually solve all of these problems at one time. Much like a rat, they will tend to leave places that are hostile and congregate in areas that are hospitable. We have created a list of insulting things that you can say to them to make their stay in your neighborhood as uncomfortable as possible. Keep in mind that you are trying to help them because you care. I know this sounds strange but if you can get them to a place where they are welcome they will be happier. Why do you think we built trailer park villages in South Florida. You don’t think Floridians ever intended to live in trailers did you?
