‘Hey Y’all’ Is Just Something Texans Say
I was out and about the other day and I had a lady stop and ask me why I said, ‘Hey Y’all’ when I walk in a room, or ‘Bye Y’all’ when I leave? I was shocked she said that to me. But it made me think… Why doesn’t everyone say it?
I come from the Texas Panhandle, how else am I supposed to greet a room full of people? It’s just something that is natural to me. Even if there is only one of you, I don’t want anyone to feel left out. That’s what Texas is about that hospitality. We will kill you with kindness.
I don’t think ‘Y’all is a bad thing, and I’m gonna continue saying it just like the y’alls before me. It’s stuck in my “panhandle speak” I cant get rid of it.
So that being said, I love y’all and I’ll see y’all Monday through Friday, 10 am – 3 pm on 101.9 The Bull!
