or the confused CVS cashiers who never remember how to do moneygram and look at you like you're a terrorist because this is the seventh time you've "wired money somewhere" (not to mention the imaginary arrows flying from those behind you in line).
"what's this here Zip...Zap? I've never heard of them before. Oh, I see they're in Calee-fornia. Whatcha doing sending money out of state?"

clerk after you leave, on phone: "Hey Cindy-Lou, guess what about that there TRANS-plant you-uns was tellin' me about that y'all thought was a devil worshiper and a homosexual?

Let's dump some more trash in his yard and maybe he'll move back to Maree-land or wherever he came from. Where'd you hear he moved here from? Ioway? I heard it was Maree-land. But Calee-fornia and Sudafed. Don't that beat all."
