You think you got it bad...I moved from Worcester (aka Wistah) to Florida. Whenver I travel to a colder area everyone needs to inform me that its going to be cold. I was in the blizzard of 78 and saw many days below zero and snow banks over my head. Thanks for the warning pal!
No you are not being an ignorant bitch! I'll be back...
Oh I so understand where you're coming from, I just recently moved from New York to North Carolina, and the culture shock has been intense. I especially sympathise with your story about people telling you about their kids when all you want is coffee. There's one thing that southerner's don't understand about northerner's. We value formality. I've heard so many unwanted personal details of the lives of people I don't know or care about, I could write a book.
I am originally from New Hampshire, now in Arizona. There is such a difference between the two cultures!
I don't think you were being a bitch just homesick! :)
I almost commented yesterday, but didn't for some reason. Had I known you were whoring for comments, I woulda! I'm Colorado.. we're notorious for lots of things. Recently for professor churchill. We were named as one of the top three "fittest cities in the nation." The Texas Seven were found just two miles from where I live. Columbine H.S. massacre happened here...
Lots of publicity! I've never lived in any other state. There ya go! A comment, just for you.
Try moving from Long Island to the midwest spending some time and the moving to SoCal for 6 years and then back to the same piddily town in the midwest.
My midwest pet peeve would be...
THE LEFT LANE IS FOR PASSING, NOT DOING DRIVING IN.
For the comments from Colorado,we do not hold anything that nimrod says against you.
Well I do enjoy a somewhat more relaxed lifestyle now, I also believe that you can have that anywhere.
Well, your post made it pretty obvious you don't like conversation with people you don't know. Maybe that had something to do with the lack of comments. I live in a suburb of St. Louis (and they are all made of ticky tacky and they all look just the same)
I grew up in Ohio and moved to Texas when I went to grad school. When I graduated from TAMU I went to Germany for three years. I now live in California.I met my wife who was origionally from Minnesota in Texas.
I understand what you are saying about people being rude in Boston, but Hamburg is even worse. People in Texas aren't rude to your face, but they talk about you behind your back to no end. It is insane to witness the behavior when you are talking to someone about a person and when that person shows up the whole mood changes to sweet as peacan pie.
People are rude in Ohio in front of your face and behind your back, so at least you know where you stand.
just came across your blog today via BE and enjoyed reading your posts. Thought I'd give my 2 cents....
I'm from Indiana originally, and I've been living in Maine for the past 5 years. It's funny b/c people around here think they are known for being so friendly (maybe when compared to other parts of New England), but when we first moved here we were treated like we had the plague b/c we were from "away." Heh. People in Indiana are as overly friendly as the ones you meet in MD. So, being treated like foreigners here in Maine was a real culture shock. It took us a few years, but I think we have settled into the Mainer mold fairly well. I am hooked on DD coffee (make mine a med. reg. French Vanilla, please.), bothered by the "leaf peepers," and would never step foot into a Red Lobster! LOL ;o)
I still miss IN though, and I don't think you were an ignorant bitch at all. We all have our own personal preferences based on how and where we were raised. Nothing wrong with that. There's also nothing wrong with finding out your preferences have changed after living someplace "different" for awhile. It's all good! ;o)
I grew up in Woodville Ca, a town of about 1,000 people, no stoplights. People often ask how many stoplights are in the town to get an idea how small it is, so yeah we have none. I moved from there to San Franciso. A bit of a change yeah? I loved San Fran, but didn't really like the noise I mean having to hear fire engines or police sirens everynight was just so foreign to me, and I lived across the street from the firestation in Woodville. Now I'm in a town of about 25,000 much more at home here.
