My wife, Sarah, was at Wal-Mart tonight on what she calls “redneck patrol.” That’s basically people-watching while at Wal-Mart. In this part of the country, it’s not all that hard a sport, and tonight Sarah wasn’t disappointed.

Within five minutes of entering the store, she passed a fellow she describes as a “redneck looking dude” and his 8 or 9 year old son.

The kid says, “I don’t got none of that.”

The dad replies, “Now, son, that’s not correct grammar…”

Sarah is surprised at this point and is thinking her initial judgment about the guy was wrong.

The dad continues, “That’s a double negative. You should say, ‘I don’t have none of that.'”

Oh my.
