However for your reference Dave if I had to live in Maryland it would probably be in Carroll County.

Don't ignore MOST of those people are probably not locals.

Where are you from?

I wouldn't be surprised to find that some of those "rude" people are from your area.

Considering the sheer number of transplants from Pennsylvania and New Jersey in Maryland, I would not be surprised if that is the case.

Does it matter? I'm talking about people that live in Maryland. If you want to argue that your state sucks because of transplants, that's a different discussion.

But the fact of the matter is your state kinda sucks.

This entire thread has evolved into one big ***** session as people complain about their problems that have nothing to do with the state of Maryland.
I don't know about Detroit. I can't hate a place I've never visited so within my vision, Maryland might as well be one of the worst places to me. I'm ready for progression and Maryland just makes me feel like I'm not ever going to get it. My feelings have to be warranted because here's the thing how are they going to have jobs if they don't have much variety in business which equals incompetent people in business because they're desperate for work.
Like I said it only burned fuel to the fire. I literally can't think of one thing outside my apartment complex that I like about my city. Even my local Denny's isn't what it used to be.

That's your problem right there. Try the Double TT diner by FSK mall or Mountain View on Rt. 40. Both have excellent diner fare.

Well I do disagree with Nickchick as the job market is one of the only positive things Maryland has going for it in my opinion.

Dissing an entire state on heavy traffic congestion and accidents when the same thing occurs in other states with large populations and/or heavily concentrated density especially in full knowing that a majority of the state's population is packed between two large cities? Whatever floats your boat I guess. But I'll say this as a wake up call, WELCOME TO THE EAST COAST!!!

I've been to Mountain View and it's good but it's very expensive. I used Denny's as an example because it was my favorite place.

Maybe in your neck of the woods but I'm just not seeing it in Fredneck

When I go home to PA, I'm much more relaxed and am not gripping the wheel out of stress. If I could go home, find a job, and have my husband find a job that pays well, we'd be out of here. I just got a good job with HoCo so we'll be sitting in traffic at least for another 5 years...then who knows. I feel your pain though!

Yea maryland sucks for so many reasons traffic is just one of them. The reason why the traffic and road rage is so bad in MD compared to other states is because it's such a small state with a large amount of people. Waaaaay too many people are cramped in that one small space. It's one of the most populated smallest states. Not enough room on the roads. I always noticed how cars with out of state tags like Jersey, Virgina, Penn and Florida always drive the speed limit and not aggressive at all compared to the hyper speeding driving idiot with MD tags trying to break their neck just to cut you off. But don't know if you can blame them. They're used to fighting for space every time they get on the road.

This past weekend we visited a friend who lives outside of Cambridge. I honestly have never met friendlier people, the couple we met at the boat ramp stopped just short of inviting us over for dinner. EVERYONE I came across was like that.

So we spent a weekend on the water, catching and eating crabs, riding in the boat, swimming off the dock. Then drove home where we could see the start of the Appalachian Mountains. You would have never guessed those 2 places were in the same state, yet alone a few hours apart. Yeah Maryland sucks alright.

I get what Philly guy is saying about the majority of the people living near the cities. He is going by population, I am going by geography as we are of course generalizing about an entire state and he wants to focus on a small section of the state. I'll say it again, traffic and "rude" people are not unique to the MD burbs. Go to any large city, especially in the NE, and that's what you will find.
