You should thank them for bringing dentists to the area. Dumping simple syrup in to the tea vat takes a few years of culinary school. Have patience. People from outside the South aren't as hip to the subtle complexities of mayonnaise and sugar.
Yup. My family has been rednecks from Waxhaw since before this country was a thing. Andrew Jackson might have been born there, but we were there first. I don't mind most yankees, they're like people from most everywhere, most of em are perfectly decent human beings, it's just annoying when you go into restaurants in your own hometown these days and before you can order sweet tea, you better ask who made the tea and where are they from, cause kids from Ohio don't know how to make sweet iced tea. They think you just brew tea and then dump a bunch of sugar in it.
