hi is anyone here? Wanted to try out a topic

  • short story paper -

    I'm here.

    What topic do you want to try out?

  • short story paper -

    I moved to the south I'm supposed to write about changes I'm thinking Yes ma'am or No ma'am? What do you think. It's expected here but not before

  • short story paper -

    or does it sound dumb//?

  • short story paper -

    No. It doesn't sound dumb! It's a good idea.

    You might expand that idea to other ways that young people show respect for older people.

  • short story paper -

    guess dumb

  • short story paper -

    oh sorry i didn't see your response

  • short story paper -

    what do u mean? forget about the maams and sirs and write about other stuff?

  • short story paper -

    No. Stick with the central theme of Yes, ma'ams and sirs.

    If you're writing a fictional short story, you may be able to allude to Emmet Till, an African American boy vacationing in the South, who did not show proper respect in 1955.

  • short story paper -

    LOL!!

    You're welcome.

    Consider a friend of mine who moved here as a child from Korea. There, children were not supposed to look an adult in the eyes, but keep their eyes downcast. She had to learn to look teachers in the eyes here. :-)

    do you notice a difference ever when talking or chatting with southern kids vs northern when they are chatting with u?

  • short story paper -

    I've always lived in the North, but I've occasionally tutored Southern kids online. I remember them saying "Yes, ma'am."
