19. Those huge strollers are an issue
I guess it's just like everything else, pets included - people who control their pets or keep their giant strollers to the side don't get noticed. I don't like when people bring strollers to runs - even when they're not supposed to - you always have to dodge them. Those people are so worried about exercising themselves that they just let their kids be tiny hostages in the strollers. I take my dogs lots of places, but usually if it's too hot, my boyfriend and I will take turns holding them in the shade or whatever we need to do. Don't worry, we don't leave them alone in a hot car! I can tell you, hot or not, they would far rather be with us than left home.

I have been to California and I don't think the people in Silicon Valley are friendly at all! I rode the BART, the CalTrain, and went to a hockey game by myself, and no one even smiled at me or said hi or anything. People in Michigan are friendlier by far (I live in Seattle now, where no one ever talks to you either) though I haven't been to the Art Fair in a long time. I'm going to Boston in a month - I haven't been there in a long time, but last time I was there, everyone was super friendly, ditto New York and DC in the last couple of years - I find the East Coast much more voluble than the West Coast. Ann Arbor is usually pretty good.

Now, if you can just get rid of the teenagers.....
