Did You Bump Your Head?

There’s a running joke in my family that I am our only Yankee, having been born in Philadelphia. But my parents moved to Florida when I was two years old and I have lived in the South ever since. So it truly offends me when people from other parts of the country make fun of Southerners and our way of life. We’re not all Duck Dynasty refugees or Honey Boo-Boo genetic throwbacks. Those people are actors who are deliberately perpetuating a stereotype, and they may be laughing at you even harder than you’re laughing at them.

It goes both ways. I never believed for a second that all you Northerners are cold, rude, indifferent gangsters. I am always treated with warmth and respect when I travel to New York, New Jersey and Boston. I have even added a few of your sayings to my lexicon. “Get outta here!” and “Forget about it!” are my personal favorites.

In return, I invite you to try a Southern expression and see if it sticks: Down here, when someone does something unbelievably illogical and stupid, we ask them, “Did you bump your head?” Unfortunately, recent events in the retail automotive business have me asking that very question of the factory executives, marketing “experts” and regulatory firebrands who seem to be hell-bent on destroying all the gains in profits and consumer trust dealers have made in recent years.
