Just the idea of being in the real city of L.A. Being able to write "Los Angeles" when I'm asked for an address.

Don't get me wrong, Glendale isn't bad. I actually admire the downtown area alittle. I wish it was part of LA and just a neighborhood like Hollywood. I use to think it was til' now I accepted that it really is another city within the county.

Only thing I don't like is it seems to be very mellow. Only place I hang out at is Charles Billiards on brand.

I think I need a change of scenery though. Gotta scope the scene in the main heart of LA, downtown.

ALso glendale seems to have alot of "uppity" middle class people. That's my only gripe about LA is many people from the hills, from the more middle class to rich areas have that "I'm all that" attitude. Like an old white lady I had at my register that was mad that she had to wait 2 minutes to get her coupon approved. And no, not all whites are like that, I got armenians too, and even fellow latinos, but all had one thing in common, this mentality that they were better than everyone else. Seemed to be a class thing. At work I see it alot.

I know exactly what you mean! I've wondered the same thing. The women seem like they don't trust anyone who isn't Armenian and the men seem very angry for some reason? I think this is primarily a First Generation thing, though. Well, lets hope it is!

It is far less conservative than it once was. The Glendale that I grew up in was hugely Republican and that has changed significantly over the past 30 years or so.

IDk, I guess glendale is generally disliked. Bad drivers, bitter folks, and overall mostly boring.
Not saying I hate it, but I don't have any kids anyways.

Why do you assume Armenians are conservative? The most overtly political I have seen Armenians is on the issue of the Armenian Genocide. Not sure they vote specifically for one political party or the other. At least not in the way the Irish did in the 1800's or African-Americans (or Jewish Americans) do in current times.
Glendale was also the home of the John Birchers in the LA area. It is just a conservative town.

Though it's not as liberal as the city of LA, Glendale votes heavily Democrat like most of LA county. Armenians also vote Democrat but tend to have "conservative" attitudes on issues such as women and homosexuality. I think they tend to be fiscally left wing and culturally right wing.

I thought I was the only one who noticed how mean and bitter the older Armenians seem. Glad I'm not alone

Far from alone. Unfortunately its the norm. Not sure what their deal is, because a lot of people from other impovishered countries are much cheerier. Actually, armenia isn't even that poor!
