I have noticed since arriving in New Orleans that it takes ten times as many words to say what we might say in Minneapolis.
For example, a Minnesotan sign to warn criminals that they are on video tape might say,
"Smile. You're on Camera."
In New Orleans, well...
A few more examples~
We would like to apologize on your behalf for the inconvenience that we have caused to you.
We'll be there around 5:30.
We will arrive at your place of residence exactly, approximately, for sure by 5:30.
