And get used to saying, "Hey Ya'll". Ya'll can be singular or plural. Just be sure to not use it in the sense, "Hey Ya'll! Watch this!!!" Famous last words of a dare devil redneck.

Thirty years ago several of us had the rules for you vs. y'all explained to us by a young lady that worked for our company. The southernmost of us was from Kansas. Since she was a native, we knew it would be the straight story:
"When I mean YOU I say 'you,' when I mean Y'ALL I say 'y'all'."
