"You might try to match the big..." Alabama Local Custom Tip by Priddylady

Alabama Local Customs: 12 reviews and 6 photos

You might try to match the big smile you'll get when you approach someone. One way of greeting you in Alabama is the one finger wave. If you're in a rural area nine times our of ten the driver you meet will raise his right index finger from the steering wheel and that's our way of saying Hi Y'all. Don't make fun of how we speak in the south! I lived in other states and you sounded as funny to me as we do to you.

Being in the South you'll receive such good service at eateries, etc. you'll wnat to leave a generous tip.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
