I laughed today

Don’t read if you take things too literally or seriously…

Today on the drive to work, I saw the most typical redneck. I didn’t see the actual person but I saw the back of their old beat-up red pickup truck. It was probably a 1980’s Ford pickup, the one you would imagine a lumberjack driving while drinking a beer. There were three distinct bumper stickers that tagged this person as a “redneck”. The first was a “Hi-neighbor” sticker. A good amount of people from around where I live have this sticker on their car because it is the slogan for a popular local brewery that makes Narragansett beer. It’s not the company that I made the connection to him being a redneck, it was just the fact that he supports beer enough to put a sticker on his truck. You can’t tell me a hill billy wouldn’t fit that category. The second sticker was “1/20/2017, Obama’s last day in office”. This got me laughing because it is fairly evident that a majority of “stereotypical southerners” aren’t a fan of the president, and particularly hill billies like to voice their opinion out against Obama. I’m all for believing in what you belief, and I have nothing against your ideas, I just thought it was a very clever bumper sticker that combined personal political disapproval with a sense of factual humor. The last sticker was the kicker, it was on display at the top of his back window, where people two or three cars back could easily read it. It said, “Should I really have to press 1 for English.” This is the epitome of all redneck characteristics. A redneck loves America and deservedly so. they stand for their country and want what is best for the nation. Society always portrays rednecks as disliking everyone except Americans, and they certainly can’t stand people not speaking English when they live and work in America. Anyways I got a good laugh out of what I saw this morning, and I appreciate that driver displaying his beliefs on his truck for people like me to make rude stereotyping connections. Eh, whaddya gonna do.
