"It took a while for me to adjust to the southern mentality."
You can say that a thousand times over. My first week in Florida I was invited to go sailing. I arrived on time in the morning to a quiet sleeping house. Awake they talked about breakfast which turned into a trip to DelChamps for groceries. The boat got underway 4 hours after I arrived. After awhile down here I learned how to interpret Floridian language:
First thing in the morning means sometime tomorrow.
Sometime ttomorrow means this week.
This week means forget it and start over.
