I could not get over how polite the men in Oklahoma are when we first moved down here. They are always tipping their hats, calling me ma’am, opening doors and carrying my groceries. I attributed their manners to good old fashioned southern up bringing. Now that I’ve been here for a few (20) years, I think I know why they are so polite.
Most of the women in Oklahoma carry, and half of them know how to castrate steer. They aren’t being polite, they’re hedging their bets.
