IT MEANS YOUR MAMA AND DADDY DIDN'T DO THEIR JOB.
Well, then you are half-way there!
Half-raised: a young man or woman who knows how to use "yes, sir" and "yes, ma'am" in conversations but still sits down to eat wearing a ball cap or other kind of hat on their head.
Half raised by the federal government and half raised by the state government...
Very good! I agree! lol
An individual lacking in certain social characteristics because they weren't raised the way you were.
Someone who was jerked up right.
About the same as half a$$ed.
Great squawk! Good selection. My mama and grand mama always used the term "raised right". If a boy got a whipping for messing up in school or Sunday School, it was because he was being "raised right!" I suppose if he had just got a scolding they would say he was being half raised right. The comments by the readers are really enjoyable.
I agree, I needed these comments today! Here, here to the SOTD Selector!
The final authority (Sister Ruby) has not spoken... Yet
Sorry to keep you all waiting for the answer. My neices are visiting me from Newark New Jersey and I have been busy taking them all over Albany to see the sights.
The answer is I never heard the phrase half raised. But I do see alot of dumb crackahs in restaurants with they ball cap on. I just figure most of them are from Lee County so they don't know no better.
Love these responses. Funny how our language is so different than in other areas of the U.S. Just gotta LOVE the South!!!!
I am a true southerner and I really do spout out our language!!!
So would that mean they were brought up halfway right or halfway wrong?
Its what i see when i look down in the morning after waking up.
VSU, is the cup half full or half empty? DRTexas, I agree with you "yes"!!!
That question must have been way over your head, and it wasn't a yes or no question. I guess you and Dr. Texas just don't understand the sarcasm of the question. Lighten up, take a chill pill, relax, calm down, keep your pants on, golly gee.
Being a transplanted Yankee, I love the South and the sayings they have. I used to work with a fella, born and raised in SoWeGa....who used to come in to work and say "ain't it airish this morning?" Had to have someone interpret it for me....meant is was windy and chilly, (according to the interpreter).
