Part of learning our culture is to learn to laugh. I was not making fun of you...rather the statement that "Charlotte is overrun with a crime problem." It gets annoying to see people fall for such ignorant statements.

But on that note, bring lots of water since Charlotte has turned into a forbidden desert...and a shotgun too to fend off the highway people.

each coutry people got their own cultural. Eg: in Singapore, people like to use wording "Kindly pass me the book in the table", however in British, we cannot use word of "kindly" because this is mean very rude.

At least, I try to learn and understand what American like and dislike (talking,writing and behaviour). I wil try to avoid to do what peple dislike. Eg, in Thailand, Thai people dislike we use finger tip to point them. But i think point people by finger tips is normal in another countries.

This is the way how to accomodate to another contries life....

You'll get something for that price range. Probably nearly anywhere in the city/county for that range and small size.

I know people like to joke on these boards, but I was a victim of crime in Charlotte more than any other place I've lived. I don't find it funny.

When you're alone with your three children at 3 in the morning and someone is breaking into your house, you'd like the police to get there in less than 25 minutes.
It is funny that I have never been a victim nor has anyone that I know been a victim of a violent crime. You must live in a horrid part of town. I would guess that you are the exception to the rule. I accidently set off my burglar alarm one night by accident and the cops were here within five minutes.

She hasn't lived in Charlotte in almost a year I believe. She did live out in southwest Charlotte a ways, so I can see how it might have taken police a while to respond when she called them. Though I think now they are striving for responses within 10 minutes of every emergency call.

When I called because strange folks were hauling refrigerators,etc out of the vacant house across the street, there were 5 police cars there in well under 10 minutes. Frankly, it was a very pleasant surprise!

I think I saw someone driving a Cadillac with chandaliers on their hood. Said something about being "The Duke of Charlotte. A Number One." or something of that nature...
