A very genteel Southern lady was driving across the Savannah River Bridge in Georgia one day. As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed a young man fixin' to (getting ready to) jump.
She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, "Please, don't jump; think of your dear mother and father."
He replied, "Mom and Dad are both dead; I'm going to jump."
She said, "Well, think of your wife and children."
He replied, "I'm not married and I don't have any kids."
She said, "Well, think of Robert E. Lee"
He replied, "Who's Robert E. Lee?"
She replied, "Well, bless your heart, just go ahead and jump, you dumb-ass Yankee."
