In my experience living here all my life, 33 years, its the closed minded long time/lifelong RESIDENTS that have the worst attitudes. NOT the tansplants.

Must be a redneck thing.

It's just the losers on here with nothing else to do. East Tn. Is the best place to live and work.

I guess its not as bad as other places, but there are a lOT of closed minded people around here. And they always come back with the "northerner" rebuttals. Cant hurt anything to get some culture in here. The bible belt is 50 years behind the rest of the country.

Worst people from up North I have met are two-faced thieves from Connecticut. I have yet to meet one that wouldn't lie right to your face, stab you in the back and steal you blind if they had half a chance. Husbands and wives from up there cover for each other in their lies and larceny. They come down here because they have been run out of up there.

Outsiders have come here and treated us terrible in the past. Those "good Christian" people, as they act like they are, think we are dumb, stupid, backward and are to be shafted out of everything they can get from us. As I have heard them say, "the gene pool is shallow in Erwin". I guess that givens them the right to do us anyway they want here in "Hooterville", as they refer to towns like Erwin. Is it any wonder we approach outsiders with such caution? Disdain? Hate?

We are NOT mean and/or hateful. We just want all you Yankees to go back north. If you were from Georgia and lived there your whole life that would be a different story!

Not saying all ppl. Its mainly those who try to control other ppls lives when in fact their own lives are published in the eliz star and they try and cover up their own evil, underhanded ways by acting holier than thou...

People in this area are so misreable in their own lives they feel it neccessary to spread it around. If they aren't happy no one should be. That's the way it is in CC.

I've spent alot of time in TN. and I have never ran across anyone who was mean or hateful. Everyone I have came in contact with was friendly. I actually find the folks in TN. to be more polite and sociable than most of the ones I meet in Va.

Justme, I feel you have hit the nail on the head as well. Otherwise, I would have not returned several years ago.

I have lived up North my entire life and recently moved to the area. I love it here. I never noticed anybody being hateful or mean. I think that I am courteous and pleasant to others, too. I do notice some people are very resistant to any change, and that there are some odd things that I haven't picked up on, but other than that, Carter County is a great place to live.
