I guess it’s the same everywhere

Just returned from an all hands company celebration. We didn’t leave the states but one person said we were in “southern Canada”. I’ve visited several spots in upstate New York and enjoyed all of them. This trip exposed me to the “finger lakes”. You could describe the fun part of the trip as “(fill in company name here) Gone Wild”. It was apparent some people just don’t get out enough to know what “acceptable social behavior” means. Starting to consume alcohol at 10:00 in the morning continuing all day at the company picnic might have been the major contributing factor. My belief that not all rednecks are southern was reinforced.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

    By the sounds of it, we have rednecks here too. From up North and down South!

    I still remember the fellow I shared a barracks with on one of my last two-week active duty stints in the USMC Reserves, who would wake up at 08:00, reach under his bunk, pull out a Bud and have it for breakfast. I wondered if this was how he spent his days at home, too, or if summer training just special. 🙂 (He was from some other unit, btw — can’t remember where anymore.)
