Southerners and their slang go together like peas and carrots (or maybe like barbecue and sweet tea, but you get the picture). Sometimes, chatting with a group of Southerners — especially if you hail from the North — can sound like they're speaking a whole different language. Sure, the Southern vernacular may be quite distinct and a little nonsensical at times, but it makes for fun fodder for conversation.
The first thing you should know is that Southerners are prone to hyperbole. While this list covers some of the main phrases you'll hear, if it sounds like we might be exaggerating, we probably are, but it's just for effect:
Service road; the road that allows you entrance to the highway.
To consider doing something.
Most always said sarcastically in response to someone being offensive (i.e., if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it at all).
This has nothing do with physical appearance — instead it means misbehaving.
Being mistaken or misguided.
