Yeah, I'd get fired pretty quickly if I had any kind of job relating to customer service in some of these places.

Seconded for Asheville. Their fan site on Twitter, AskAsheville, kind of reflects the town. If you mention Asheville in anything, they tweet it. Many think their city is the best and that nothing is nicer.

Another city that is kind of stuck up with some of their people: Savannah. Everybody talks about Paula Deen's restaurant there and how they have the best Southern food anywhere. There's several Southern places in any town around the Southeast that have just as good food as them, perhaps better.

Savannah is still a very separated town with its schools. Most of the rich living in town go to private schools like Benedictine, Savannah Country Day and others, while the public high schools are predominately for the lower classes.

I heard a rumor that schools in the Savannah area (including the suburbs) have a high high school drop out rate. Is this true?

Savannah is like that in many areas. The Chatham schools in '08-'09 only had 72% graduate.

Many school districts in Georgia have a high dropout rate. I know that the Clarke County School District graduates just over half the students who enter 9th grade.

Who could forget the episode Smug Alert on South Park? It's one of their best.

Smug Alert (Season 10, Episode 2) - Full Episode Player - South Park Studios

Just watched that, forgot how great this was. I love the part where Cartman is all suited up and he walks by the cafe where the two partons are like "Yea San Francisco is more European like Paris or Milan." LoL. They even got the San Francisco accent right with the eeeeeeeelongated vooooowels.
