Accent? Nah.

1. During this morning’s groundpound, I noticed that a woman was backing her car out of her driveway. In the past, having almost been hit by a person backing a car out of a driveway, I stopped to wait for her to finish backing out. She stopped the car, but never looked at me. Seeing as how her backup lights were still on and she was still looking straight ahead, I continued to wait, rather than step behind the ton of potentially moving steel.

After about ten seconds, she turned in my direction and waved her hand out the window while saying, “Ga Head.” I understood her perfectly.

2. It occurs to me that, when in Jersey Mode, I pronounce the contraction “we’re” as “wur.”

3. Similarly, when in Jersey Mode, I pronounce “I’m” as “ahm.”

I figure everyone else toowaks wrong.


  1. Heh…well, you ain’t Paul Harvey, dat’s for sure.

  2. When LBJ was president, Texans were glad to have someone in the White House that didn’t have an accent…

  3. I’m with you – I never argue with cars when I’m on foot. I might be right, but it wouldn’t make one damn bit of difference if I end up in the hospital with broken bits.

    Accent? You? Umm… BWAHAHAHAHA.

  4. I moved my truck out of the driveway & parked in front of the house so I could snowblow the driveway & sidewalk again. while removing the last days accumulation (4.6″). A Damned fleet of snow plows came by & plowed an impenatrable barrier around my truck!……Or so they thought as I have 4 wheel drive & just drove out of it & blew the accumulated snow high into the air & let the wind take it away.Screw the snow police….we now have 90.2 ” total so it looks like we will get over 100″ for the season once again….Sigh!
