    Holly Davis instead of Harley Davidson, Smith and Western, and "it is what it is".

    My daughter just started high school this year and Ive been asking tons of questions about it, to which she just replies "I don't know". I'm thinking of getting her hearing checked, seriously. What is wrong with kids these days can't even remember what they did 5min ago.

    D'addario: it's pronounced "Da-dairy-oh" (per the FAQs on their website). NOT "Dee-ah-dairy-oh."

    And the OP left out our worst Minnesota-ism: saying borrowed when you mean lent, as in "I borrowed him ten dollars."

    I left there in 1959. But went to NDSU where I met my wife. I got a wrong number once in my dorm and whoever called me asked if I was from Philadephia which I was! My wife has been home a lot to Williston ND recently due to her mother's failing health. She sounds really ND right now.

    Yeah, but Philly gave "jawn" to the world, so it's all forgiven.

    Hi.

    I’m on holiday in NZ and the near ubiquitous “yous guys”* really gets on my nerves.

    Recent example, waiter to two customers, “Are yous guys ready to order?”

    * yooz guys / you’s guys ???

    Sometimes you have to pick your battles. Walk into Guitar Center and ask for a set of "Da-dairy-ohs" and the slack-jawed sales droid is just gonna stand there and look at you funny.

    "Yous" is very common just a few hundred miles north of me. We make fun, but it is a regional thing.
    A little closer and its what we call "hon" country. "Goin down da ocean hon?"
    Everybody is hon.
    Its not so bad. At least I can understand them. Salt of the earth. Mostly good people.

    "What Say You" by some radio hosts - it sounds so sissy

    I found it interesting you spoke in a sentence without it ending as a question. When I lived in Alabama, everything was a question.

    Hey buddy how you DOIN'? I'm doin' FINE? Where ya headed? Going over YONDER? Okay, guess I'll see ya LATER? Not if I sees ya FIRST?

    That's yet another reason I don't walk into Guitar Center.
