My favorite part is when they complain about not being able to find a good bagel or slice of pizza. You know where you can find such a thing? Wherever the heck you came from.

The worst part is how rude they are inside stores and waiting in check out lines because they are in such a rush and have no patience, and then they check out and go get in the car and drive 10 under the speed limit.

Growing up in high school/college my friends refused serving them in restaurants. They always claimed that they were the most difficult/demanding customers and the worst tippers.

In college when I was a service writer at an auto shop, I cant tell you how many of them would come in for a 19.99 oil change (For 5 Qts) and then b*tch and moan about the extra $3 dollar charge for the extra quart of oil that their brand new car/truck needed. Then talked down to me as if I was hustling away and robbing them of their entire life savings.

I love it when a few raindrops hit the highway and they turn their hazards on and proceed down the road.

Driving under the speed limit, isn't that illegal?

I am from MA and moved down south decades ago. I have fully adopted the mentality down here and am really starting to loathe life long northerners that come down here, don't respect and integrate into the culture and are a bunch of people offering advice about how they did things back home. Its really to the point that if I have one of them give me sass I will just start giving them directions to 95 if they asked for it. It takes them a while to figure out what I am doing and it gets them going pretty good. Sometimes even one of them will fight back and try to lecture me on how the south would be something out of Deliverance if it was not for them gracing us with their income nevermind we have Cisco, LG, Microsoft, NetApp, EMC, SAP, SAS, Lowes, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Advanced Auto Parts and many more employing hundreds of thousands of people in my state with good income.

I don't know what it is with people from New England and the northern midwest that makes them a bunch of miserable pricks know it alls.

Most northerners are fine, keep to themselves. But with this COVID nonsense they are extremely rude and want to lecture everyone who will listen on how you need to live your life and protect them. Not to mention they can’t drive for a shit. Do they even know what a side view mirror is and how to use one? Don’t get me started on driving 20 under the limit when it’s 35. Let’s not forget making a turn from the wrong lane.

Not really. I have 6 Canadians living within 2 blocks of me on my street, and 4 of them are here already.

The best about the snowbird yanks who become full time residents is the desire for more ordinances / rules to make Florida life more suitable for them . So , when more ordinances are created , it takes extra bureaucracy / govt / Leo to manage it which in turn requires higher taxes to fund it -which is one of the important things they are running from. “ Our home state is full of crap , so we’ll go ruin theirs ” and that’s their vision.
