So, you make the move. You were able to buy a cheaper house for the same or more space and you go to find another job, or go to a retirement community depending on your age. But those who look for a new job notice the money isn't as good, so the expenses even out. Those who think they can go to the beach every day realize it tends to loose it's charm after the first week or so. I mean, who wants to go through all the preparation of going to the beach all the time? Plus, that sand gets everywhere. But still, you moved, and life goes on. You talk to your friends back home and the last thing you want to tell them is that life is pretty much the same except warmer, and maybe a little worse on the allergies (if you moved to South Florida because you thought your allergies would be better you're a moron). So you brag about the beach and tell your friends how wonderful life is...
This is how South Florida stedily gets it's population from the North East, and belive me this is not just me saying this. It really is a common joke down here people play if they relize it or not. I've talked to several transplants from Florida and we even joke about it. So I apologize to any Floridians if I am breaking the scam, but you've really got to call it what it is.
But hey, Im a transplant to Florida just like.... Almost everyone else down here. You know what you see on my social networking sites that I post to all my friends and family back in Texas and everywhere else? I have pictures of the beach I walk by every day and comments on the weather.... Like I said, everyone is in on it.
