Which neighborhood?

Welcome to SA, home of the world's worst drivers, apparently. But we're a friendly bunch, at the bars and what-not.

Apartment dwelling with a youngster: No matter if they stomp or not, you're going to get accused of sounding like a herd of elephants if you're above anyone. If you're below them, the kid is going to be accused of being a screaming Mimi.

It's called a motivating factor in purchasing a home of your own.

It's natural to be anxious, but as sapphire said most folks around here are very friendly (except when they are behind the wheel of a car). It would be easier to provide advice if you gave more details such as where you are going to live, work, etc. And if you can afford it, now is a good time to buy a home. I suspect the housing market may already be starting to rise back due to the number of people taking advantage of the recent slump in home sales; but for the time being you can still negotiate some good deals!

Otherwise, welcome to S.A.!

Cheers! M2

Welcome to SA!!
We are also still very new to here. Just moved into our new home in July.
I will admit, I am still nervous at times. But, take a deep breath, and you will enjoy what the city offers.

I guess you haven't been to Massachusetts or New Jersey, where the drivers are much worse than in San Antonio.

It was sarcasm, based on the countless other threads bashing SA drivers. And you're wrong, I have been to the cesspool known as New Jersey, but you guessed correctly regarding Massachusetts.

So where is Dazed moving? What neighborhood? Still don't know. Doesn't really matter. Almost anywhere in SA is good.

Yup...I used to drive regularly in Massachusetts.
Where do you think the term M*ssholes came from?
