I can't believe it's 2007, and I am hearing THIS!
And, why exactly would you hang out and hire a local guy first?
Family and church connections just mean a lot to people in the South. When you meet a native North Carolinian the first two questions you will likely hear are "Where are you from?" and "Where do you go to church?" If the answers are "Not from around here." and "I don't go to church." it is much harder to form a bond with you. I choose the local guy first because he's my people.

So, not a single chance for little me to become "your people"?

I never claimed ownership of CLT. The South Carolina locations you mentioned are basically suburbs of CLT while the NC towns are much more rural.

Except for the fact that my wife's grandfather owned a store in Kings Mountain I sort of doubt that I'd be welcomed with open arms.

We may well be friends if we work together or we are neighbors but I'm always going to keep you at a distance.

Just ignore these people (of course, these are the same people most likely go to church every Sunday). 99% of people would look at this and laugh and realize how much nonsense it is. People from up North (this seems like the place most people like to attack down here) are not aliens - we are human beings too. Ugh, why am I even explaining this. For your own sanity, just IGNORE it.

Tell me something, while I have you "on the hook" (you know by now I'm kidding, right???)
Since you are NC native....is it true that SC taxes are cheaper in comparison then NC's?
The only thing I have found out so far is the fact, I gather, that SC's tax is a bit screwed up, and made no sense explaining.

I've heard that the tax burden in SC is generally lower than in NC and that public services are commensurate.

Thank's.....
I am very easy going, and never, ever had a problem making friends!
I do mind my manners, just like my mama and papa told me to, and be friendly and curtious.
I do have my best friends already, I would die for in a heartbeat...because they are so much more then just that.
But, of course would it be so much better to move to an area, where the people are a bit more lax and with the times. (Instead of me pulling the knife out of my back every single day )
