Etiquette For Rednecks

#1 Post by Pete44ru » Sun Apr 14, 2019 10:20 am



1. Never take a beer to a job interview.

2. Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them.

3. It's considered poor taste to take a cooler to church.

4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets.

5. Even if you're certain that you are included in the will, it is still considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home.


1. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label.

2. Avoid throwing bones and food scraps on the floor as the restaurant may not have dogs.


1. A dining table centerpiece should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist.

2. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table no matter how good his manners are.


1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys.

2. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However, if you live alone, deodorant is considered a waste of good money.

3. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods.

DATING (Outside the family)

1. Always offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first date.

2. Be aggressive. Let your date know you're interested: 'I've been wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the restroom wall two years ago.'

3. Establish with your date's parents what time he/she is expected back. Some will say 10:00 PM; others might say 'Monday.' If the latter is the answer, it is the man's responsibility to get her to school on time.

4.Always have a positive comment about your date's appearance, such as, 'Ya' sure don't sweat much for a fattie.'


1. Livestock, usually, is a poor choice for a wedding gift.

2. Kissing the bride or groom for more than 5 seconds may get you shot.

3. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cummerbund and a clean bowling shirt can create too sporty an appearance..

4. Though uncomfortable, say 'yes' to socks and shoes for this special occasion.

5. It is not appropriate to tell the groom how good his wife is in the sack, not the bride about het husband.


1. Always dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded, and the deer is in sight.

2. When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way.

3. Never tow another vehicle using panty hose and duct tape.

4. When sending your spouse/friend down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask them to bring back beer.

5. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving.

6. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.


1. All the DNA is the same.

2. There are no dental records

A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they’re physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember.
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair.
“Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?” he asks.
“Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?”
“Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember it?” she asks. “No, I can remember it.”
“Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so’s not to forget it?”
He says, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.”
“I’d also like whipped cream. I’m certain you’ll forget that, write it down?” she asks.
Irritated, he says, “I don’t need to write it down, I can remember it!
Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream – I got it, for goodness sake!”
Then he toddles into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.
She stares at the plate for a moment. “Where’s my toast?”

I'll have to dispute your definition of Rednecks. The people you describe are White Trash. The difference is subtle, but profound.

Rednecks are basically country folk -- at least country-born-and-raised. They like shooting, hunting, fishing, maybe do a bit of farming. They tend to be pillars of their churches and communities, and the most-valued employees on their jobs. They are pretty plainspoken, and all they really want from the rest of society is to be left alone to live as they wish. They may have White Trash cousins, but they ain't White Trash.

The driving rule number 2 is in full force around Dallas. Also, if your truck is less than 30 years old, you had better not come to a complete stop or the next truck in line will run into you. The antiques do come to a complete stop because their drivers need a moment to check what is causing that noise.
