I hate it when "hillbilly" is used to try to insinuate someone is of low intelligence, backward or "less than". Some of the most honest, intelligent people I've ever met are hillbillies or rednecks. I am one myself and I wear the title proudly.

I don't know if this is a local thing or if it's used across the entire south, but it's more of a phrase than a word...
"Good land, I do reckon!"
Well, after typing that I've decided I really hate the word "reckon" (yet, I use it on occasion because it's been instilled in my vocabulary). But, that phrase makes no logical sense and it really messes with my brain.

"Instantaneously" (Grrr just say "instantly"! It's shorter, means the same thing, AND SOUNDS BETTER!!!)
