Thanks for the link, I enjoyed reading what happened years ago
Yes, I bet you're patting yourself on the back on that one too, Whitey. It inspired me to make a joke.
Here's why doing anything new in Paulding is tough. A new person in the county comes in to buy cola at a fair. Yep, they're willing to give us $5.00 for a .50 cent can of Coca-cola. Its a hot day and they figure that it is worth it. They pull out a $10 bill and pass it to the guy and then hold their hand out for change ... The old guy, we'll call him Whitey for grins, stares at the hand like he hasn't ever seen a palm before. He then hems and haws, grabs his customers' hand and shakes it saying, here's your tip ... in a slow, gravely southern drawl.
Taken aback by the familiarity, the newbie says, "I'm giving you $5 for a cold can of coke, I want change!"
"Boy you're quick, ... that's it ... there ain't no change in Paulding County as long as I'm here around ... now next," Whitey says.
