I found people friendlier in Broward County. Nuff said. Orlando just aint what it used to be. It seems to have attracted the misfits of every city and country.

Come on, I left for where those damn yankees belong! You should be happy!

Seminole County is still nice. I wouldn't mind living there, but I know you don't like our kind around there, unless, of course, I voted for Bush in 2004 and I came from the midwest...

Maybe this country ought to separate into different countries by region, since we are all supposed to stay put anyway...

I have lived all over the country and have met the rudist and most angry people living here in Orlando than anywhere else in the country. I live here because I have to for work. They pulled me out of the Northwest. Even with all the rain (by the way less than Orlando), I miss it there. I just wish everyone would learn to drive here.

We all should live in Baldwin Park and be able to walk or skateboard to work. (I don't. Can't afford it yet, but someday maybe...)

Grrr - the driving in and around Orlando - don't get my started! Coming home today down John Young Parkway with my 3 kids in tow, a woman decided she needed to cross JYP. I was in the far left lane and coming up at 45 mph (the speed limit) when she pulled into my lane and STOPPED, trying to cross the other lanes! I had to sit there and pray that people tooling down JYP in my lane saw that I was stopped for this moron. I couldn't get around here b/c the traffic in the other lanes was too heavy. At least I got to use it as an example for my kids on how not to drive. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid woman!

Well I do agree there are some REALLY dumb drivers around here. But last time I was in South Florida I saw the same if not dumber driving.
