When I was in High School our class had a Car Wash to raise money for a Senior Trip. My father, who is a VERY skilled machinist or grease monkey, came to pick me up. A fellow classmate (Not knowing the relation) said to me, I bet we can make a ton by giving that guy a wash. I told him I did not think we had enough soap left, then ran to my dad and gave him a big hug.
One day I told my father "On a Redneck scale of 1-10, 10 being the biggest redneck, you are an 8" His reply to me was " There ain't nothin' wrong with being a redneck" My reply "Congrats you are now a 10!" Here are a few jewels from my father, words that come from his mouth on a regular basis. I will translate as needed.
Gawkin at the caulkin (Inspecting a project that needs to be completed)
Well, I let you jaw at your Mom (I don't have anything else I need to say to you, talk to your mother)
Kids! Put the guns down its time to Pray (Dinner is ready)
Yellow (Hello when answering the phone)
I'll talk at ya later (Good-bye)
Salsta (That spicy ketchup Mexicans use)
Amb-lee-ins (The big van that takes you to the hospital real fast)
I love my dad, Please, help me to communicate with my father better! If you have any Redneck slang, please, post them here!
