It's really simple. If you wave at someone around here and they don't wave back, they're NOT from here. They are most likely from Florida, the type of person that would use the phrase "you people".

A lot of it has to do with the fact that many of the people who ride that train are unfriendly, rude, dimwitted jackasses who stand in the middle of the road and block traffic, who let their children run wild, etc. Don't get me wrong--I know there are folks on that train who aren't idiots--but the bad ones greatly outnumber the good ones. After putting up with this daily for years, it's hard to feel friendly toward a trainload of 95% morons.

Can't wave because I am stricken you spent all that money on a bumpy ride to Copperhill.

For a town whose economy is so dependant on tourist dollars we are extraordinary inhospitable, especially those of us who do not directly benefit. If waving at tourists were a paid position we would do better.

well for one, I've lived here my entire life. And I hate that damned headache causing piece of machinery and 90 percent of the rude people that ride it.
