Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

I'm from CT as well & totally agree with Erin. I was floored early on when a black woman held open a door for me & greeted me good morning!

I was quite upset when I first read this article. I attacked the author personally, which I apologize for.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

Quite the bitter article. We moved here from CT. If you wanna REALLY see unfriendly, visit there. Charleston (Mount Pleasant areas), are very friendly, no place is a perfect uptopia, but coming from the Northeast, NYC regions... People don't even make eye contact there and the cashiers don't even look at you, let alone say hello. Since we have arrived in SC, we have had conversations in local shops, nice small talk at check out lines, people DEFINITELY smile more and are much more patient and the schools are phenomenal. It's perspective, and it sounds like the author of this article may have lost that a bit. No matter where you live, it's your appreciation and perspectives that make it "home". Sounds like you may need to spend time in an actual under served area to really appreciate the charm, albeit not perfection, of Charleston and it's surrounding areas.

THE TITLE OF YOUR ARTICLE gives everyone a perfect picture of a LACK OF CLASS that you have.

Who would want to know your opinion anyway?

Clean up your mouth and maybe someone would.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

If you dont like charleston the stay away no one asked you to come here and the woman about the schools i bet were she lives i can say a few things also. Every town a d city has its faults and yes they work on them but people like this dont need to exist. They neex to worry about they own place of living and fix there marriages and put better congressmen in office. Stupid cant be fixed and to say something like that is asinine. This really showed the ignorance of these people.
