Country women aren’t hicks from wherever!!!

So this woman made news headlines yesterday and the story hit a raw nerve with me…I couldn’t care less that she wasn’t allowed into the Members Reserve at the SCG (Sydney Cricket Ground) because her dress didn’t fit under the regulations…it wasn’t knee length and the requirements are that it has to be knee length.

I cared because she said ”I am a corporate solicitor.  I know what is appropriate and not. I am not some hick from wherever.”

That really peeved me off…country women know what is appropriate and what is not, quite possibly a lot more than what city women do given a lot of the outfits that I have seen while I’ve been on holidays in the city.

But since when are country women hicks???  I’ll call myself a country bumpkin…that’s one thing.  But a HICK???

The definition of hick is ‘a person who lives in the country, regarded as being unintelligent or parochial.

Ummmmmmm well I might live in the country, but I’m definitely not unintelligent and I’m probably more intelligent that this lovely lady.

The definition of country bumpkin is ‘an unsophisticated or socially awkward person from the countryside.’

Well I’m from the countryside and I wouldn’t say I’m unsophisticated or socially awkward

I would love to question this woman about her knowledge of country people as I’m thinking that she hasn’t often ventured out of the concrete jungle of Sydney that she lives in based on her simple quotes above.

Common sense says if you’ve been a member of somewhere for 25 years then you should well and truly know the rules and not spit the dummy when someone tells you that you’re not dressed appropriately.

Just my opinion!!!
