Know what really grinds my gears? Poor use of the clutch!

So it's a good story, told well twice.  I guess Vermont and New England could be described as the Yorkshire of the US, or vice versa.  Both places have reputations for people who tend to be brief and thrifty with their words.

Unlike me.

Vermont farmer

A texas cattle rancher came to visit a Vermont dairy farm.

He gets a tour of the 10 acre farm, and says to the Vermont farmer "This farm aint nothin, my ranch back in texas is so big, it would take us 3 days just to drive my truck around the whole property".

The Vermont farmer responds "yup I had a truck like that once"

A Texan ranch owner

A Texan ranch owner was visiting UK and visited a local pub in a sheep farming area of Yorkshire. He struck up a conversation with a sheep farmer in the pub. After a bit of chit chat, the Texan asked the Yorkshireman a question. The conversation went thus:

Texan - “So, how long does it take you to go from one end of your farm to the other”.

Yorkshireman – “about 3 hours to walk from one end to the other”

Texan – “If I get in my car to drive from one end of my ranch to the other, it’ll take me a day”

Yorkshireman, after some pause for thought – “Aye, I used to have a car like that.”
