I voted for the pet dumping, we have to deal with dumped dogs once in a while coming on the property.

If you don't want your animals take them to the shelter, I'm tired of dealing with you idiots leaving your animals on my property.

The only thing I hate about living in thr country or in a small town, is that there is no law against idiots moving from big cities up north to our little papradise and bitchin about everything. Shut the hell up or get the hell out.

Well, I came from up north(Michigan)back in 1989 and I love it here. I do know what you mean, when a lot of the Saturn folks started coming down here in the early to mid 90's I just wanted to strangle some of them.

They move out to the country, knowing there are not any close by stores or ones that meet their approval and then complain about it. If they want city life then they should have moved to Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin or something similar.

Then those idiotic GM people give their kids quads and trailbikes and tell them it's OK to run them on my property. Needless to say my cattle aren't real fond of all the noise and neither am I.

I once had words with some idiot who said it was his legal right to drive his quad anywhere he wanted because it was out in the country.

I've had the sheriff out here, I've posted signs (that get ripped down) and I'm about at my wits end.

I hate to say this but I hope the Saturn plant goes under and stays under. Then maybe some of these idiots will pack up and leave.

I would move if I had the money. So until I scrape up enough cash to get the hell out, I'm going to bitch about living here.

Why did you come in the first place? What you didn't notice on the way in that you went through only two redlights and no McDonald's on every corner. It's not like Chapel Hill tricks you into thinking it's a big city and then you find out it's not. I don't care if you have the money to move or not, if you don't like rural America then don't move to it in the first place.

What does a preacher's job outside of the church have to do with living in the country. Wonder you are an idiot. Maybe you should talk to the preacher and he can help get you onto the right path.

See how nice and polite they are in Tennessee? Aw ain't that sweet. Baby bumpin', redneck, hell hole full of scoffers who pretend to be Christians and hate 24 hours a day. What are the favorite past times in Tennessee? Arson, baby bumpin', gossip, hatred, and writing obscenities (that mains durty wurds, ya'hall)on houses of gay people.

You must be one bored person. In the country you get peace,fresh air,loud music and can drink beer and pee off the porch without a neighbor calling the law.

i have the worst of both worlds - and may i say up front that i would move back to the city in a SECOND if my husband would agree to it! Anyway - my world consists of living in a self-proclaimed subdivision out in the county. The closest house to mine is 10 feet. These retirees who moved out here from various cities (on the lake) have tons of tiny little rules that are totally unenforceable - because we live out in the county! I agree with your entire list of 'country problems'. If i truly lived out in the county on a lot of acreage, where i could really do what i wanted, i might like it a little better. BUT then you have to contend with meth-heads who are EVERYWHERE and like nothing better than to find a nice home way out and raid it. And so is life. You can never have it all.

I had to move to the country to live with my fiance who is servicing in the military and needs to live near his base. I had previously lived in the heart of the city but sacrificed it so we could be together. As soon as I moved down, my lovely boy was deployed to the Middle East for 6 months. I have no job out here, no friends and n social life. I can't wait til he gets home when we will be promptly moving to the nearest city and he can commute to the base. So don't get annoyed or ratty with city people who have moved to the country and are finding it hard to adjust - it's not always their choice.

It's not everyone's choice. I totally agree, I moved to the country in east TN tri cities area from Palm Beach Florida.. People out here the fake country accents left and right among other things, wait ill keep going the way they think they know it all and couldn't survive a day where you had to fend for yourself In an urban environment suck. And the churches rule, that sucks.. The popular thing to do out here is get married young have babies and do what your told your whole life.. I hate this stupid redneck Bible Belt bullshit.. Everyone here is fat as well, very common.. The only people that aren't completely naive to the fact we are living in 2012 are lame imitators of people from a big city that hate on the ones who are.. I have contemplated suicide since being here seriously.. Everyone here (for the most part) are just complete fucking idiots.. Like, screw the crime.. At least in a big city screwing your family member, being 30 and marrying high school graduates and methamphetamine as well as terrible hygiene isn't running disgustingly rampant.. I hate my life here it sucks.. Everyone here sucks, I hate you all. Bye

It's not that easy hun! I was born here and I can't leave until I'm 18. I STILL can't move after then because I don't have any money. Why don't I? Because I've been raised in the countryside where I can't get a job.

I am a older adult, I have literally lived in alot of places with my family who moved alot due to my fathers jobs, then when I got married, husband moved alot in military and his job afterwards, so I have lived in the city and country. I pick country, not that it doesnít have itís challenges, my daughter grew up in the country. When she got old enough to work she worked in a small country grocery store, a ice cream store. She is older now, her favorite memories of starting out in employment are those exact places. I love the quiet, being able to hear wildlife(hawks, hummingbirds etc.), just the wind in the pines, gardening, hearing trains in the distance. Walking outside and just hearing nature, seeing nature. In the city it was sirens, car doors slamming, engines running, people talking, yelling, neighbors dogs barking constantly, constant traffic noise.......I like my privacy, so it was not hard giving up pizza delivery, I just get a pizza and put it in the oven, stores not nearby, do not bother me, I would not want to sit in traffic to get out of my street to wait in more traffic to get to the store! Ugh. We live close enough, sometimes not far enough away, to all the conveiences. Now with the internet its wide open, who needs to go to the stores, except for the grocery store. We go in when we need something and we are grateful to come back out to the country and leave the rat race to those who enjoy it..........
