If I may relay a story I heard sometime back,

It seems two guys retired from the same city and decided to move.

Guy #1 was driving around and stopped for gas at a small country store/gas station. He asked the old guy about the people around here, saying he was looking for a place to retire. The old guy asked how the people were in the city he came from. Guy #1 replied, they are all jerks, idiots, back stabbers and I need to get away from them. The Old guy tells him he will find the people here, just like the people from the city,

Guy #2 stops by the same store/gas station and ask the old guy about the people who resided in the area adding he had just reited and was looking for a new home. Again the old man ask how the people were from his city. Well, says Guy #2, thats the problem, they are the most wonderful people in the world. I hate to move but I can't afford to live in the city on my pension. Its so sad, I was hoping to find people just like the ones I have to leave.

The old man replies, "I believe you are gonna find the same sort of people here.

My Dad always said , if your neighbors are all
abunch jerks you had better look in the mirror .
I've tried to live with that in mind , so far I like all my neighbors . Sure don't want to look in a mirror any more than I have to .
