Just to let you know, implicature, hospitality isn't forgotten in the North just in big chunks of it. In Vermont we still wave at passersby ask folks how they're doing whether we know them or not and address men as "sir" and women as "ma'am". Probably why all my best buddies in the regulars were Southerners. Common frame of culture.

yeah those are the things that make me feel at home! when you told your story about no one picking you up as you were walking down the road i just could not believe it... i pick ppl up no matter what they are dressed like or whatever... i know that in some locations you just can't do that in fear of your life but dang ppl show a little heart! the best way to tell the south (home) from anywhere else is

Yep, that was a big part of why I was shocked. Not to mention the deathly cold temperature, but fellow northerners just can't visualize our low crime rate. The murder tally for 2004 was 8 for the whole state. All but 2 were drunks killing their spouses. The 2 that were not were an old couple killed by a couple of New York teenagers who robbed them. Figures.
