Assunto:  What do you think? the customer is not always righ
 
Mensagem:  PPaulo, I do not recall ever hearing it used in that fashion.  British English?  Archaic American?  Could be.  "Hick" is a good way to say "caipira".   "Hillbilly" refers to someone friom the hills/moutains.  I´ve only heard it used to refer to people from the South (West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, etc.).  A civilian is a paisano, someone who is neither police nor military.
