    this is what makes me crazy!

    You have no idea what my life is like but yet you can make assumptions about what I can do. I don't live in Maryland...I live in Arkansas. I have to make my choices based on many factors not the least of which is schools, affordable housing, and safe neighborhoods. And I don't want my neighbors living under my elbow which is why I prefer to commute 60 miles a day.

    I'm not a slacker...I'm just surrounded by overachievers!

      GP didn't make any assumptions. YOU made the assumption that you have to live in 'the country' to see squirrels, and the GP properly refuted that assumption with their real-life example.

      Not everyone who lives in a rural area and drives a car is a knuckledragging, neocon, neanderthal.

      ... but two out of three ain't bad.

        I never assumed I had to live in the country to see squirrels. I just said that is where I prefer to live.

        So "ummm" yourself.

          Is there something wrong with leaving the city everyday to escape to the country where you can actually hear birds sing and squirrels chatter?

          EOM.
