Ok, I just wanted to point out this article to people who live around here. It stood out to me for a number of reasons.
1. Who cares if Cary residents don’t like the new signs?
2. The signs in Cary really are ugly. Like really ugly and what makes that so funny is all the rules and regulations Cary has about signs. Mostly rules like “don’t have them.”
3. Read the comments. Seriously, even if you don’t read the rest of the article the comments are totally worth it. I just don’t even know what to think of them! I mean that is some hard core HATING of Cary. The best part is they HATE Cary and all their “I’m better than you are” attitudes, but umm.. really? Pot calling the kettle black and all that good stuff. Idiots.
It reminded me of high school, only worse. I can remember being 14 or 15 and a freshman in highschool.. School hadn’t been in session very long and I didn’t know many people. A few of the people that I did know had this one friend Autumn* that said to me one day “You know, you’re the nicest Yankee I’ve ever met,” and I remember just being speechless. I mean what do you say to that?! I mean geez.. and then looking back, how many “Yankees” do you think she’s actually ever met (not including my mid-western-yankee-ass)? I’m thinking a big fat 0.
I guess I just sort of forgot some people were still so anti-outsiders. You’d think they’d be flattered that they created such a nice place to live. Oh well.
