Kytoaz, your problem is that you're taking a subjective, eye-of-the-beholder judgment about how "nice" or "rude" people are, based on arbitrary criteria, and acting like it's some kind of universal, empirical truth.

Frankly, ignoring smiles and waves while judging others' friendliness based on shopping carts and nose-blowing is bizarre and doesn't comport with how friendliness is understood by anyone else I know. You sound like you're wound about three turns too tight, and I'm glad for your sake that you're going to a place like AZ where you can chill out a bit.

I was born in Southern California and did not come to KY until I was in my 50's. What a change but it has been a nice change. No cement jungles, anymore. For the money you are willing to spend, you will have a mansion compared to what you would buy in San Diego. People are friendly. People much more willing to give of themselves and to charities. Churches on every corner, as well as banks. Give it a try.

you missed my point entirely. if you don't recognize rude behavior, then you are probably displaying it. and last time i checked, opinions were based on personal experiences. I could go into further detail regarding the difference between friendly and rude, but what's the point. you are obviously part of the ignorant rude masses of kentucky. if your parents didn't teach you, how can I?

and btw, i say hello to everyone. i also use my signals, say please and thank you, am aware enough of my surroundings to maybe get my butt out of someone else's way and would never dream of blowing my nose at the dinner table.

Rude behaviors are not a rude person make. ASIDE from someone off on the side picking there nose, people are pretty nice. As long as you're not from indiana(J/K). Driving can be a hastle. Most drive too damn slow and everybody else thinks there's a trophy waiting for first place or something. Even in the "undesirable" area's people are nice. Then again some people mostly young people could care less. I've noticed a lot of impatient people. The clubs and bars can be stale. Restraunts are decent. Most people will say there isn't **** to do here but all you need to do is one spread out your adventures and always look for the next thing. When you do the same **** every weekend than it can get old. Many places of interest are vast though. Like Btown rd. There are still stores and places I haven't been in for a while or at all. A few places to check out on Frankfort ave, whom want to be like btown I guess but everything seems to shutdown around 6. You got st. matthews and the hurstbourne rd area. There is more and always have been more than just 4th street Live. There's lots of non-food chain places to eat, even downtown. Honestly I feel like btown is most accepting than anywhere else where there are standards.

Do not move to New Albany, Jeffersonville or Clarksville unless you like living with 100% pure rednecks. I have two sisters that live in New Albany and all I can say is you'll fit in nicely if you are the kind of person who has deer heads on the walls of your house and like to hunt ans watch Hee Haa every Saturday night.

Now that we've got Southern Indiana out of the way, let's move on to Louisville. I was born and raised there. Lived there until I was almost 30 so I know what I'm talking about when it comes to Louisville and southern Indiana.

The south end of Louisville...Redneck central, pure and simple. No nice way to say it. The area around Iroquois Park is especially bad. Stay away from the south end. You would want the east end if you want to raise your kids around people with an education and thought processes. If you're going north on 65, you would want to take 64 east.

Get off on Hourstbourne Lane or even St. Matthews. Good areas and in the east end. I was raised by Iroquois Park in the south end and it was good when I was a kid, but now it's a place that is unreal.

I'm not a troll, I was born and raised there. Trust me...east end and avoid New Albany and Jeffersonville.

Your location says that you are in Austin, Texas. How do you like it there? I am in Plano, Texas, just north of Dallas.
