My informant now tells me that she is a life-long resident of the South. I 
don't know her age or race. She writes:

 [I was] born and raised in the South.  If you could hear me, you would 
know.  I’m all about the proper use of ya’ll. 
 Sometimes I just pander to the Yankees and use “you guys.”  Can’t bring 
myself to say, “Youse guys.”
