Went out and bought a plow yesterday from a couple guys from my school that try and be country as possible,(talk, dress, walk, ect) these 2 told me they had a tractor tiller to sell or scrap. I go out there and its a dearborn 2 bottom and if i dont buy it they would SCRAP IT!!! I bought it and he went and got one of his dads tractors to pick it up. he comes back riding the clutch with it throttled as high as possible. After 3 tries he gets it backed up to the plow he asks how to hook it up, i said the 3 point he says Whats that? then i have to show him how to lower it. after its all hooked up he gets it half lifed up and goes full throttle tries to rip it out of the ground, he managed to rip the back coulter off the plow. i ended up 120 for it. He goes on to try and sell this rod thingy(pto shaft) this big metal thing(backblade) and a nice 5ft ford mower that in his words is ruined.

TO my point no matter how many pairs of boots you wear, cans of chew you do, and big trucks you drive it wont make you true country.
From a real country boy,
JOE

i have that same problem at my school. i have actually stopped wearing camo to school because of it. kids act like all that then the go back home to their town house to smoke illeagl substances. me and my friends laugh everytime we see one. they wouldnt know a beef cow from a dairy bull. it would be diffrent if they worked for a farmer or are like one kid who lives in town but they ave a farm out side of town.

When I took one of my my CDL tests, a guy like the ones you describe walked in to take a CDL test. He looked so cool in the black hat, sequins on the western jeans and shirt and boots. I kept an eye on him as he took his test, and he was flipping back and forth through the pages instead of progressing on in an orderly way. He did that for fifteen minutes and walked out, leaving the test on the desk. This plain old farmer here in work boots and a sweatshirt aced the test. Jim

I shouldn't say anything, but here's a little story. Must be twenty years ago I had this young man buying hay from me, he was from New York City, worked in high finance in Mpls. and married a local girl. He was a very nice and polite fellow, would always call first and come over on Sat. morning. Brand new F250 4x4 always spotless, would put on about 25 bales, thats it, didn't think it would haul any more than that. He always had on brand new carharts etc. really playing the game. One Sat. he called and said the had two college buddies in town from NY and could he bring them along, and to let them load and for me to just watch, he wanted to show them how hard he worked to haul this hay. So I just watched these three guys, all different nationalities struggle loading this hay, and I had to laugh to myself, If my Grandfather could be there in his 100 year old barn and watch this sight-he would just shake his head in disbelief. But they were all nice guys and it was a new experience for them. After about a year of this we delivered his hay, he did have a NAA and a nice place, two horses and a goat. Then they were gone the next year.

In Texas they say "all hat, no cattle" when talking about wannabees.

The only thing that could make that story better was if you delivered 50 bales with your Ford Ranger.
