I'm enjoying reading all your posts here
and I certainly can feel for you missing michigan people. As I had moved away from michigan to texas and we missed michigan so bad! we were away a year but
we knew it within a month.

my son said just that " I miss the rude people in michigan! And I miss Meirs"
We just couldn't take it anymore! so we left.

They use to say " Go home dam yankee and I said ok we are!" and we did and michigan looked so good when we got back home I think some knew we were home sick I just wished I had listened right away when I heard those words " go home dam yankee!"

we like the music, shopping and tacos in austin and that was it

michigan is home we have the best education and the great lakes the great beaches and beautiful snow!

and "rude" people

it is home

our economy stinks to!

I miss the rude people too! Everyone's so nosy in SC. It's annoying. It's like, don't you have something better to do than worry about what I'm doing and why I'm doing it and where?

You know, I've spent time in Texas too, and I agree - for all the hype (something else that's big about Texas, I guess), I was totally disappointed.

Umm...I never experienced any rudeness to speak of when I lived in Michigan (lived in Marshall in the 60s-80s). It was quite the opposite. (Wisconsin was another story ).

Is it the general consensus that Michigan people are rude

It's rude to pick on Wisconsin!
I love Wisconsin... in fact, if I had to leave Michigan, we'd probably start our job search in Madison.

LOL! I guess maybe it is. That was just my personal experience of comparing Marshall to Greendale/Waukesha as a school-age child.

I know, comparing a small town of 7000 people to the suburbs of Milwaukee is a study of contrasts, but it was a life-altering negative experience for me. The kids were at least two years behind socially and it was quite a culture shock (you'd think it would be the opposite coming from a small town). YMMV.

Default I'm jealous...

You are so lucky to be going back. I was born and raised in Texas, but got to live in Michigan for a year. I loved it!!! If I could, I would be back there in a minute.
I can't take the heat & humidity here in Houston anymore. I miss the changing seasons and the snow!

What I mean by rude people in MI isn't that they don't care, but that they aren't nosey. You can go to your mailbox without your neighbor following their hello with, "And what bills do you have to pay this time? How much? Mine are this." yada yada yada.
