I'm outta here for a week and am not bringing the laptop so here's an open thread while I'm away. I'm expecting dozens of hilarious comments and banter when I return so don't disappoint me! (Spam robots will undoubtedly post a bunch of crap since this will be open & unmoderated so just ignore their crap.)
Here are a few recent gems to spark the discussion -
"My suggestion to you is that you petition the Scottsdale City Council/Mayor/City Manager/Chamber of Commerce to cease advertising Scottsdale as an upscale/wealthy/upper-middle class/rich community. Scottsdale is a lower-middle class community and nothing more. The fact that this hype was able to fool Fidelity goes to show how far Scottsdale took this false advertising." - MG
"Scottsdale is trash. The reason why it deserves to be blasted is because everyone thinks it's such a great place to live. Every night when I drive home, I lock my doors, roll up my windows, and look no one in the eye that's on the street. Why is that? Gangs. I do not allow my wife to go to the gym by herself. I don't allow her to walk the dog by herself, mainly because of fear. There is too much shit going around these neighborhoods that I'm ready to get the hell out of." - Henry
Or this gem - Scottsdale residents pushing for construction of a cutesy, artist-designed bridge over the sewage canal at an estimated cost of $1.7 million - apparently these are the same people who oppose building anything that might actually HELP the area ... nope ... instead let's build an artsy fartsy $1.7 million dollar bridge over the little sewage canal. I can see them all high-fiving each other right now: "THIS will finally put us on the map!!"
Anyway, have fun!
EDIT - It's Wednesday, 4/2 and I'm back in town so all previous threads are re-opened to comments and moderation is turned back on.
