Isnt that pleasant? Man I wish everyone was like that. Would make life so much more enjoyable!
If u judge people on their accents or geographical origination points you've got problems.

Florida isn't so bad, but of course, like everything else in life, it's all relative. If you were talking about a small island in the Caribbean, I would agree, but Florida is a very large state with over 19 million residents from all walks of life. People who are generally happy all the time will probably be happy living almost anywhere. Same goes for people who are miserable and depressed on the time.

But in the end, it all comes down to one thing IMHO - money!! No matter where you live, it has a big impact on your life and the choices available to you. Heck, even if you're one of the sad people I mentioned above, I'd rather be wealthy and miserable than poor and miserable.

Covering up for a failure to grasp basic spelling. You're on a roll. I guess you're a product of the Florida education system.

I work in mix of Finance, Mergers and Acquisitions, Wealth Management. I work with a lot of HNW clients and also companies both large and small. "Wealthy"? Well I do not own a G650 or fly around in one, do not own a Lambo or Ferrari or a yacht or even a boat, but I do like nice cars and motorcycles, suppose I like to invest in things that give more of a return on investment, real estate and etc.
I've got a Silverado, lifted, 2013, crew cab. I've got a FloGrown sticker on my back window.

We dont advertise we are natives as much as other ppl seems to flaunt where they're from.

Speaking of xenophobia, I am going to guess u never tried to live in northern maine.

There are many places in the country that dont want outsiders coming in to screw things up.
South Florida is another borough of NY, can't speak for the rest of Florida. The further you go inland the more that changes though.

Has nothing substantial to offer, feels backed into a corner and resorts to grammar patrol in a lame attempt to redeem itself.

Would those "ppl" be from NY? As much as I see the Florida related stuff, I have to admit I see plenty of NY related paraphernalia as well.

Knows he has failed to prove his point and dodges the request for factual evidence (because there is none), and can't stop crying foul in a feeble attempt to change the subject.
