Subject: OT... Life and women in my neck of the woods
Content Advisory! Language advisory.
Attached Link: Southern Women
This is southern women at their finest. I don't know a woman around these parts that has not said every one of these one liners. I thought you Brits, Cannacks, etc... would like a peek at my world.
Mild language advisary. There are currently three episodes on YouTube.

I had to google Essex girls. If what I read about definition of Essex girl is correct, this is by far the most inaccurate description of the women portrayed in my posting. Believe it or not these "Southern women" are mirrors of very real, loving and loveable, down to earth, moms, grandmothers, fun loving, opinionated, rulers of the roost, southern ladies.
I'd be curious to view some videos of women and their "communication" skills from other parts of this planet. When I think of Brits, my impression is Hyacynth character on "Keeping Up Appearances". Correct me please!
I'm waiting for tjohn to jump into this discussion. He is from Tennessee I believe. He will confirm what I say.
Hyacynth Bucket is a obviously a comic character, but ladies like her do exist in the UK. They are the kind of women who will clean their house from top to bottom BEFORE the cleaner comes in, raise their pinkies when drinking tea, and would be horrified if they couldn't buy cube sugar.
My maternal grandmother was one of these - I say this affectionately - I once heard her complain bitterly about the gossip mongers in her street just hours before spending the afternoon gossiping with her neighbour over tea.
And if you liked 'Keeping Up Appearences', try watching 'The Good Life' (from the BBC). Margot (Penelope Keith) is in much the same vein.
As for my reference to Essex girls, I was thinking of cringe-worthy ladies of questionable intelligence, the kind of girl who thinks that breast feeding is '..so unnatural..', and meant no offense to the southern ladies you refer to.

No offense was taken at all Chris. I'm just making the observation these ladies and their youtube is spot on. If you were here I could introduce you to at least a dozen of these gems. They are polite, witty and will knock your socks off. But once they let down the "appearances" the above video is what you get. This here is real life where I live.
