“it's only for a few years”

Jul 16 2004 Kelly Norton

After much heartache, I think that Stephanie and I have finally found a place to live in Boston. We may be in for a very rude awakening when we arrive since we had to do much of the shopping from Atlanta, but we have at least avoided sleeping in the snow. Our first introduction to Boston, I have to say, has not really done much to excite us about the upcoming move. In general, people in the rental industry followed very closely the stereotypes that Southerners expect from those who live in the Northeast; rudeness, deceitfulness and general disregard for others. We can only hope the characteristics do not extend outside of the real estate community, but we're already having to reassure ourselves that “it's only for a few years”.
