Dear God the folks in schenectady are rude. Hold the door for someone, they walk right by. Say hello to someone, you get looked at like you just slapped their mother. Have manners just $hit the bed in this place? I have been here for 5 years and it has just gotten worse. What the deal?

Better hurry and move. It sounds like it's wearing off on you.

Yeah I notice the same stuff you mention when I am in Schenectady. The doctors are very rude there for some reason and seem to think they are of God-like status. What part of Schenectady do you live, if you don't mind me asking.

Nope. Nothing wearing off here. I still hold doors for everyone and say hello as often as I can.

Move to Saratoga/Wilton area. People are very nice. Do NOT go to Naples, FL...Schenectady will seem like the center of politeness...people there let doors close practically in your face, do not signal when cutting through three lanes of traffic, NEVER say "thank you," text while driving and all are on the phone...no not the snowbirds, the young people!
