This is coming from someone that wants to live in Florida where people go to die. Before you bad mouth Collingswood (a town you obviously know nothing about) maybe you should do a little research on it. It is a very safe historic town. Go move to your swamp already! I hear Publix needs bag boys.

anywhere in this country.
This is a great post. I totally agree, especially since I was stuck in Orlando Florida for a short while. Nothing compares to the Northeast! It is sad so many New Jerseyans take so much for granted in their state.

One of the places your sure to visit will be Lady of Lordes Hospital just down the street !!! You desperately need some new fantasies dude !!!
What's wrong with Collingswood? It's also right next to Haddonfield, should he or she be vigilant and on the look out for those wretched rich women riding around in their Jaguars talking on their cell phone and drinking their lattes to avoid being hit or run over. If all the decent amount of people left in Collingswood leave, then it will turn into an extension of Camden, thus putting pressure on the next town etc... It's not always good to run away.

I have a spot for him, here in St. Pete. All he has to do is come get it. I'll switch with him.

Oh, and Publix is on a hiring freeze

I lived in Collingswood a number of years ago......center of town is nice, however, its been my experience that decent towns don't raise pride of home ownership of the blighted towns next to them.....in fact its just the opposite.....the blighted towns drag down the towns next to them. Throw in the crime and yes you'd better be vigilant but not for the rich women from Haddonfield but for those from Camden willing to do commit any type of violent crime to support their drug habits.

I don't take much for granted, most New Jerseyans that complain are the ones that can't afford to go into New York or even down the shore because it's soo expensive. I'd like to live in a state that doesn't have a fee attached to anything and everything that is "fun". Needless to say I spend a lot of time at home and go to the park a lot. I'm glad some of you can still afford to have fun

Then you don't want to live in New Jersey as aside from a mountain of various other fees the state reaches into your wallet to extract there is also a FEE just to sit on the beach !!! Adults and children.
