A people who migrate to the south because there are more jobs, a stronger economy, better food, and better weather. They also insist on bringing their loud, rude, arrogant, ways with them all the while complaining that home was so much better. They are in a perpetual frantic rush. They talk very fast. They refuse to assimilate to southern culture but expect southerners to do things their way. They are horrible drivers. They do not give firm hand shakes. In the North eye contact is considered a threat.They find the word "Ya'll" offensive but use the word "Youse" in the exact same context. They are tacky dressers. Women have teased hair and outfits that southerners let go of in the 80's. Men rarely open doors for women. Men wear gold jewelry, loafers, and slacks but look down on southerners for wearing boots and jeans. They don't want to live in the South for fear of being "Land-Locked" but many don't swim. They hate Country music because they have no idea what Real Country Music is. Yankees think pick-up trucks and those that drive them are ignorant. They can't conceive that some one might want to drive a pick-up simply because they don't want to drive a car. They don't know that traditionally the term "Red Neck" is a compliment. They don't know the difference between a Red Neck, White Trash, and a Good Ol' Boy or which one a Guido is closely related to. There is no such thing as Northern pride and therefore they can't even begin to understand Southern pride.
Did you see that guy tailgating me at 90 miles an hour? He drives like a Yankee.

The word is a derogatory term used to describe Americans by the Brits, Canadians, Australians and the like; but in the USA used to define an American from the Northern States in the USA, such as New England and the Mid-West.

It was most notably used to describe to the Federal Solders and other Northerners by the Confederates during the Civil War Era. Even though some foreigner’s refer to all American’s as Yankees, does not make it so. Call a Southerner a Yankee and he’ll think you’re either just plain dumb or that you are trying to pick a fight.

The characteristics often associated with a stereotypical Yankee are shrewdness, thrift, craftiness, rudeness, arrogance, and loudness.

To foreigners, a Yankee is an American.
To Americans, a Yankee is a Northerner.
To Easterners, a Yankee is a New Englander.
To New Englanders, a Yankee is a Vermonter.
And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast

A term and nickname created by Southerners and Confederate Civil War soldiers for a person who is from the North (Midwest/Northeast). It was especially given to Union soldiers who fought in the American Civil War, usually having to go into into The South in order to engage the enemy in combat. The Union forces invading Southern territory and also incidents where a few groups of soldiers pillaged and destroyed property and people's lives resulted in making this nickname derogatory by some.
Northerners and Midwesterners get called "Yankees" a lot by many Southerners.

The most egotistical group of athletes to ever hit the major leagues. The Yankees suck not because the play badly, but because they are not a team they are a business.
A Yankee fan's contribution to baseball chat rooms is limited to "Red Sox suck" and "1918."

Yankees Suck
It is a well known fact that the Yankees eat babies, rape young unwed mothers and are the number one cause of the decay of Western civilization.

The most historic and awesome team in American history. The New York Yankees are far more than just a baseball team. They are an institution. Legends such as Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig, Joe Dimaggio, and Reggie Jackson were all Yankees. They have won the world Series 26 times.

Also known as the Bronx Bombers.
The New York Yankees are the ultimate sports franchise.
