If Southerners had Performance Reviews

The truth is that we all have performance reviews. Southern folks can be really judgmental. I learned to code switch at a young age because my parents couldn't stand me speaking like a hillbilly and my school friends made fun of me for talking "proper." That probably helped me get my first radio job. But if I didn't keep up with all the rules of Southern etiquette, my mother would correct me immediately.

Code switch?
Oh yeah, in my early teens I worked on a farm in CT on a crew putting in hay. Every sentence was a minimum of 50% expletives.
code switch!
Supper with my parents and brother.
