Everyone has the right to their own opinion. People can agree or disagree with it that is their right. If you chose to read a book and you didn't agree with the author would you also want to burn or banish the book?

Can't take the heat? Don't make ignorant comments.

But ya came here for a job, now didn't ya , cause the rust belt jobs all went away long ago, didn't they. I'm sure that when you move back you will not have any problems find a whole bunch of "natives" that will help you pack your stuff and wish you a safe journey to the state line.

Ya know if you walk into a restaurant and start bashing the food before you are served, your going to wait a while for service, and the food will probably be spit on by all the kitchen staff.

You're so angry for nothing, and if you have a beef with an NC driver, I bet ya that it was just a response in kind to your anger and self-centered attitude exhibited in your driving.

A thread (post) cannot be closed or deleted just because there is a disagreement with the content or find it offensive.
The parameter of reporting a post "This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts."

Post #13 - incitement to a fight, for sure.

Too bad the fool only looks for the bad. I'm heading out to the mountains in the morning on my motorcycle. Would have today, but woke to that nasty storm. There are indications that the leaves are starting to change, marking the beginning of one of the most best reasons for living here.

That's what I thought too...and why I reported that post. It seemed to go against what city-data is about and is obviously posted with intention of inciting an argument. It certainly isn't simply someone's opinion.

Apparently driving touches a nerve in NC. In your spare time, check the Raleigh forum, you will find plenty of the same comments from people moving down here about the driving. One thread had close to 200 comments. No one is here to fight, just discuss. Mr/Mrs Asheville native. For your info. I have been here 20+ years. And No, I did not come here looking for a job. NC came looking for me. It has been known for a long time NC's educational system and it's workers are no match for the Northern and Mid-Western workers. We have a much better, fully funded educational system and the workers have more experience. To this day NC employers are in trade magazines, newspapers, etc.. trying to get people from out of state of work here because they cannot find qualified people in this state. Just a fact. This state needs to re-evaluate a lot of things. One of them being their educational system. Once they do, your born and raised will be better off.

No, it's ignorance that touches a nerve...driving is no different wherever you go, with a mix of bad drivers and good. Your personal experiences do not define the entire state, I'm sorry to tell you. Besides, you know full well that you weren't just talking about driving...below is an excerpt from post #13, in case you forgot:

It seems like you were trying really hard to offend people, so don't act like you were just talking about driving.

Just a statement of truth. People are offended way to quickly. If I got offended for every time someone made rude comments about being a Yankee it would be stupid. No one responded about the driving, it was all go back home, etc... So you tell me who incites issues?

Think the natives have abandoned Raleigh to the "not from here's". You couldn't pay me to live in the mess of angry irrational transplants who seem to choose to be angry outsiders vs. chilling out and enjoying life.

Have you called the moving company yet

You are the type that if you moved to a country like France or Spain 20 ago you would still be belly aching about all the people that don't speak English.

Bless your heart
