New Orleans: Southern Hostile-ality

I've begun to accept that the idea of "southern hospitality" in New Orleans is a lie (drunkenness should never be confused with hospitality). New Orleans is a dangerous, albeit colorful, city. After all, what can one think of a city that finds it endearing that its locals try to rip off tourists by asking the question, "I bet you 10 dollah I can tell you where you got your shoes at." For those unsuspecting and perhaps naive souls who bite at these bums' English that makes the Queen cringe, a quick "On yo' feet" is followed by demands of paying the $10-20 you never really agreed to owe them. It’s cute, right?
