Do you ever find yourself amused (and amazed) by peoples' white trash antics?
Sure you do.
Southern Fried White Trash takes a humorous look at the unbelievable mindset of the national subculture (and Southern specialty) we affectionately refer to as "white trash."

Back to reality

Well I took a break for a few days; my husband and I were at the beach on a workation, and it was (for the most part) glorious. Some loser broke into my husband's truck the last night we were there and stole some tools, but one never escapes the land of white trash for long, does one?

I'm happy to report that the weather has finally cooled here in Atlanta. When that happens, a light comes on on my dashboard telling me that my tire pressure is low. I happened to be over by the dealership where I bought the car this morning, so I swung in there just to get them to give me a shot of air in each tire. That usually fixes me up for the Winter. The guy who greeted me at the door this morning, however, had a better idea. He wanted to sell me air with bigger molecules, so that the air wouldn't leak out of my tires. I kid you not.

Now I'm not a genius folks, but I did not fall off the truck yesterday either. I politely declined the gentleman's offer, since I could not for the life of me figure out how I'd know what size air molecules I was buying. I mean, can you just buy one really big one, thereby saving a lot of money per tire? Can I buy extra and keep them in a Mason jar in case the little light comes on again? What if I get stranded in a not-so-urban area, where the folks have never heard of bigger air molecules? Already, I was worrying myself sick. It just wasn't worth it.


  1. Wow, what is a molecular scientist doing working at a car dealership?!?

  2. I know, right? He is trying to sell big air to innocent, helpless women. :)

  3. I asked my brother in law about this, he said he has heard about them putting some types of gases into the tires - helium for example...but he says he think any advantage would be very minimal.
