Reader: Ignore People Who Act Superior Because They Exited the Womb in Colo.


A recent post offered a list of the top ten things people moving to Colorado should know according to the Estately website.

Some readers responded by urging potential newcomers to stay away.

Others were considerably more welcoming, with the author of this post opining that the number of natives with an attitude about new arrivals is considerably smaller than more accepting folks.

Here's what he had to say.

You are going to encounter some ignorant natives with 10th grade educations that are going to berate you for moving to their beloved state. They may blame you for all of their troubles and think they are superior to you in every way just because Colorado just so happened to be the place that they exited the womb, but most natives are actually very accepting and fun.
