Do people say 'please' and 'thank you' in the south? Man I hate when that happens!

I'm only kidding...

Thank you for any input.
Let me and a gazillion other northerners know when you've found it!

^^^Perhaps its up north? Gotta love people coming to the south and looking for the characteristics of the north. I thought the point of leaving the north and it's "attitudes" was to do just that - get away from it. Not recreate it down in FL - which has been done. Maybe shoveling some snow isnt too bad after all? Sorry, sometimes I just let it fly. Please forgive me.

Don't mean to offend anybody here, hate to generalize like this, but I'm sure you know what I mean...

Thank you for any input.
You want northern attitudes in Florida move to South Florida even NYers complain about the rudeness.

I live in Orlando Florida and the people in my neighborhood and the surrounding area are some of the most hateful, disrespectful, and rudest people I have ever met in my life. I regret I ever moved from Pennsylvania and bought a home in Florida because this place is not what people think it is once you get here.

Hahaha. ComSense, quite alright, I can see your point. . . However, living here in the Sunshine State for (about) two years has been more than enough time for me to fall in love with these blue skies, tropical palm trees and beautiful sunshine. The idea of. . . living in the north, shoveling my car out of three feet of snow, cabin fever for half of the year, the deathly appearance of your enviornment during the dark months, that piercing wind down the back of your throat when you breathe, and you can feel it like needles all the way in your lungs. . . Really, is enough to keep me grounded down here. . . I wore shorts and a tshirt last week, in February, and that is still very incredible to me. . . I am crazy about the outdoors, the fact that I can run around, bikeride, swim, hike, etc. for twelve months out of the year is just... incredible!

The great thing about Florida (and also possibly one of the worst) is that there is a mash of people here, from all over, from all areas of the world. . . So, I don't think it's so much of a stretch to ask where the northeasterners tend to mingle, as like-minded people tend to migrate together. . . And, if not a northerner-attitude, at least somewhere that feels more like a community than a bunch of random, unconnected individuals. . . Jacksonville is a lonely, business-esque city that does nothing for social relationships (twenty minutes to get everywhere, quite interesting actually how that works.)

It would be nice to find an area where shops, bars, schools, homes are all very local.. In walking/biking distance, not stretches of highway... Hear me?
