There's a Reason I Live in Halifax

Posted on Fri, Jul 15, 2011 at 11:08 AM

To the idiot at the Alderney Ferry terminal who walked in front of me on purpose to try and start something and then accused me of not saying excuse me. This is precisely why I choose to live in Halifax even though I work in Dartmouth. Because you are, sadly, the most polite person I've ever encountered there. Since working in Dartmouth, I have encountered the rudest, most dangerous drivers, the most incompetent, lazy, "I don't give a damn" restaurant staff and the plain damn rudest people I've ever met in this otherwise very pleasant city.

I doubt you'll read this, fool, because I doubt you can read, quite frankly. But for the rest of you Morlocks over there maybe this will give you some idea as to WHY we choose to pay inflated rent and deal with the pretension and expense of living in Halifax. There are fewer mothers screaming cuss words at their children. There are fewer drivers who just don't give a damn and spend their days running red lights. There are fewer people intent on spreading their undignified bullshit wherever they go.

I'd rather walk naked through Uniacke Square at 3am than hang out in downtown Dartmouth at noon. —Happier in Halifax
