Thanks for another great one war_shu_duck!
As for why life here is so unstable for many I believe it is because Arizona attracts malcontents. It used to be cheap to live here. The sun and 80 degree weather is one hell of a lure when its 23 degrees back home. On the surface many parts of the Phoenix metro area appear affluent. You drive by nice manicured lawns and newly built houses and think that looks like somewhere I would like to live. That is until you do live here and learn most jobs don't pay well. The neighbors in what you thought was a nice area are real annoying Aholes. Most of the people you thought were doing well are barely treading water and up to their necks in debt. So now you're here and what you thought was a move for the better turns out not to be bliss. Then you try to make the best of it and attempt to make friends . There too you find people here don't make real friendships. What you have is competitors. Your co-workers, neighbors, and anyone you attempted to befriend are in direct competition with you. Who has the hottest or richest spouse, most expensive or newest house/car ect ect. This is exactly how I believe a lot of people live in this state. Its also how I think they end up going broke, marrying several times, and moving several times.
