I grew up on a farm, doing farm work everyday. And ever since I moved into the city people always -

people always say stuff like "heyyyy farmerrrr" and stuff like that. Like it's an insult? I don't look like a hick incase you're wondering, and I don't have a different accent at all. They just know I used to live on a farm growing up, and like look down on me because of that?
I was just wondering why?
(I don't care really, because what people say has never bothered me, I'm just curious as to what's the problem?)
I didn't think growing up on a farm was such a bad way to live, but people must see it that way?

I grew up in a ranch and i would not trade those memories for anything.. You have to choose your friends better first time somebody said to me hey farm boy i went right up to him and said my name is Gabriel
Not farm boy ...... Thats all it took i don't hang around with people who don't respect others

I actually like country life and i wonder why people dont like it, and in my personal opinion people who have lived in villages, did manual work have deeper understanding of life, may be because they are closer to nature_ they are not as superficial,, i myself have migrated to city, and i think i know many things that people who grow in cities dont, so may be we should look down upon them, its a sad lack of knowledge that makes them say such things_

Right? I don't lookdown on them though, I just don't understand why it's so bad that I used to be a farmer.
it has nothing to do with my looks, I actually get told that i'm physically attractive quite a bit, but just the fact that I was raised on a farm, people like to poke at me.

like when someone is talking to me instead of saying my name, they will be like "hey farmer" or something like that.

i mean it doesn't bother me that much because I could care less what people say and think about me but I just don't understand why it matters that I used to work/live on a farm.

oh its not bad at all, it just shows how superficial people are_
yeah thats the thing, dont let it bother u, infact i would say take pride in it when people call u a farmer, not many can boast that they know about earth and have worked and lived in it:)

First I'd like to Thank You.
Neallll most people don't stop to realize the beginnings of what it takes to get 'food to mouth'. So just greet them with a smile and ask if they enjoyed their meal.

im from new york....and i never saw a farm before in my life...farms are usual a southern thing...and people from the south(not all of them) offen have horrible grammer....dont have that same flow...and are alot slower...the city is a very fast place....so when people look at farming the think of the south...and when they think of the south they have a negitive look on you....im not saying i do...and the city almost alway has a faster education system.....for example ..not to long ago a boy from north carolina came to our school...and he didnt know anything at all in my phyical science class...he was telling us the work is to hard and we are to much for him...his grammer is mad lame....his slang is so much different from ours....he talk way to slow.....and he is just a out cast...they are about 30 people from the south in my school....and they all are failing...they just cant keep up....and everyone calls them dumb country.....i guess we just grow up hearing so much negitivity about them ..when we meet them and realize that some of the stuff we hear is true...is gives the whole south a bad name...im not saying i agree with this im just keeping it 100 with you ....i hope it gets better for you...let me know what you think about what i just told you

well most of the people I know tell me i'm one of the smartest people they know.
I don't have a different accent from the city people, and I don't talk slow, I'm pretty articulate.
