Yeah I remember as a kid when we went to my aunt's place in South Carolina... once you got into Louisiana it was like a different language... which was distinct from Mississippi, which was different than the accent of Alabama folks, which was different from Georgia, where the "southern drawl" was an art form, and similar in South Carolina (my aunt and her family lived in Iva, near Spartanburg, and just over the Georgia line from Lake Hartwell...)One I heard mostly from my Dad was:
"they would not work in a pie factory". Meaning nothing would suit him. Or no job was good enough for them.
One thing I like about our country is the local terms and yes accents. Living in the South still enjoy a true Southern accent which sadly is less and less here and the Boston and some others.
