Do you live in “suburbia”?
Yes, I live in a residential area of a small to midsized town. (County population of about 47,000)
By some standards but on a national level it’s probably closer to the outskirts of a city or a medium sized city
Unfortunately. Hoping to move to the city in a couple years.
Not quite… It’s the outskirts, but still definitely metro Phoenix
I live 3-5 miles from a McDonalds. I only live one mile from 7-Eleven and In-N-Out. Does that count?
What does that mean?
Yep, grew up in the ‘burbs. Still live in the ‘burbs. But it’s a lot lonelier than it used to be, people stay inside, neighbors don’t talk, it’s a totally different vibe than when I grew up riding my bicycle everywhere. I hate that for kids today.
Nope. Forced to live in the ghetto with all of the trash.
Are you saying that you are trash?
“Forced to live...”
Do you think the people around you aren’t also forced to live where you live?
I don’t care. The Government forces my daughter to live with drug addicts.
Is she in a HUD program?
How does the government force her to live somewhere?
By placing man hating feminazis in the position of “judge”.
At least that’s how it works here. I have so little rights that the feminazi knew drugs were around but didn’t allow me full custody anyway. It’s an unbelievable biased system against men.
Oh, I understand. I’m very sorry. I don’t agree at all with the outdated parental rights laws in this country. If the dad is the better parent, the dad is the better parent case closed. My cousin fought his drug addicted son’s mother for years before finally getting custody. a couple of months ago she was getting high with her oldest son and they both OD’d, she lived and he died. That’s a pain my cousin’s son, who is a special kid, he sings bluegrass with a banjo it’s so coo, has to live with forever. So believe me, I don’t believe mothers should just get the kids.
Bro, cowboy, you gotta chill in dumb situations like this.
That sounds like something her dope smoking “mom” would say. Women have it so rough...
I know two guys that have been able to gain custody of their kids, just some advice from their situations, don’t be afraid to call the cops every time you can find proof of drug use, single parents aren’t supposed to have different people(like relationship wise) coming in and out of kids lives, just keep track of all the names if that’s happening, and if there is ANY sign of abuse or neglect talk to the school. The courts listen to the schools more than anyone else. I hope the situation gets better, all kids deserve to be raised loved and safe.
A friend of mine was able to get all three of his kids from their addict mom and the judge was entirely on his side. The judge also made sure she paid him child support and locked her up for several months because she was so behind on her payments.
Yeah but it’s not my preference. I love living in the thick of the city. I also love living in the woods. (Note: the southern New England version of “the woods”. It’s not like there isn’t a town hours away, but it’s far enough that light and noise pollution are at a minimum.)
yes unfortunately, I'd love to live deeper in the country
In an apartment in suburbia.. yes
Surprisingly for my fiercely libertarian streak, I actually live in an urban area. About seven blocks away from the heart of the ghetto, as a matter-of-fact.
I've lived in Chicago all my life. I do not know suburbia
Rural/suburbia and I love it. Although I could maybe be out a bit further one day
Down the street from historical theatre, lots of nice restaurants, beautiful million dollar homes, lots of shopping. Shoreline view with SF skyline. Wanna die here. Wish I went to their HS. Excellent rep.
Nah...just a couple of blocks out of “downtown”. In fact, I’m planning to buy something downtown this year. I think it will be a great money maker in the summer. 👍🏻
No way. Suburbia is practically downtown. My idea of the best part of town isn’t uptown, downtown, or on the edge of town, it’s all the way outtatown.
I’m in the middle of suburbia.
I don't know what a tourist trap of about 25,000 pop is.
Not rural, not suburbia, not a big city.
Hey I live in a tourist trap of 25,000
I like to think of it as subruria. On the edge of suburbia, on the rural side.
