It's funny, I just moved back from Hawaii which is supposed to be the friendliest place far and wide. I have to tell you, what a contrast coming back to L.A...I keep meeting such NICE people everywhere! People have been so receptive and helpful. I went to lunch with a total stranger I'd just met on a TV set one day...this would never happen in Hawaii. I was taking my nightly walk about 1030pm and stopped to talk to a girl who was moving and she invited me into her house to see if I wanted anything (Hollywood Hills). Two nights ago I was taking my nightly walk again (this time in Burbank) and happened upon a "for rent" sign (sister needs a place). Again, about 1030 at night. Out pops a lovely young woman who proceeded to show me the place (she was just a neighbor) and then invited me in to check her place out. A security guard at Time Warner came running out the door after me because I'd forgotten my reciept. I was a good way down the walk (Hollywood). A Metro Rail driver opened his window and called after me to make sure I knew which train to take (Red Line). I could go on and on about these acts of kindness I've experienced since I've been back. I feel like I've been in the desert (so to speak) when it comes to kindness and courtesy. I'm conviced it's all about our attitude and what we radiate.

To the OP, sounds like you're fishin' in the wrong pond. The meanest people I've met in California were pretty much all transplants. Like everyplace else, there are good ones and bad ones here. I've met dreadful guys from Arizona too...although not as bad as the ones from Nevada .

I cant deny that there are many who come out here, from there, and for the most part, bring their lifestyles with them. But remember too, that Az isnt as hospitable as many might think. Guess we have to take the good with the bad, eh?

The problem you're seeing here in the West is all the Jerks from the East Coast(Sorry if I offended anyone) moving out west because the cost of living is cheaper. I was born and raised in Az. and Utah and lived in both these states for 54 yrs. I know the East Coasters don't want to admit it, but your lifestyle and actions are Rude compared to the laid back West. It never used to be like this in Calif. or Nevada where I live(Las Vegas to be exact. I went to a pro baseball game last Sat. Night and was trying to give away Free tickets by the box office(extras I had for the game) and some jerk got in my face and said he had his and coped an attitude with me just for trying to give people something for nothing. I said"Fine, I'll throw them in the garbage". His buddy finally took them. I have traveled all across the U.S. in my line of work and know a Boston accent when I hear them. That is the problem with the West(I know it is going to Hit East Coasters wrong) but the West used to be layed back and friendly until you people started moving out here ie. about 20 yrs. ago. Please take your big city B.S. and move back to the East. We don't need it here. I deal with it everyday driving to work. I'll get out in the fast lane to pass someone running 50MPH and the next thing I know there is some Jerk driving 90mph plus blowing his horn and giving me the finger until I make my pass. I've driven all over the US and you can't hide your East Coast driving habits with a Nevada or Calif. plate on your car. Do both of us a favor, go back to where you came from and kill yourself on their highways. Sorry if this sounded extreme, but this is what's happening out West.

Because they are all from south of the shasta county line! Hopefully when NORTH California breaks away from the rest of the a-holes that have flooded CA over the years, and form the state of Jefferson, you'll meet a nice guy!

Attn "Bay Area" folks. STAY WHERE YOU ARE!!! YOU (and your liberalism) AREN"T WANTED IN THE NORTHSTATE!!!!

FWIW,

Shingletown, CA.


BTW, I'd like to help you "slap the sheet" out of "most" Kalifornians! lol

I met one person from Colorado and he was weird so everyone in Colorado is weird

Kind of ridiculous don't you think?
