No Crime! Posted On: 2/5/2007 2:06:10 PM
No major crime in Cheyenne, that is a joke! I moved here from NYC and I am ready to move back. First of all my car was broken into with all 4 doors locked, luckily I am from NY and I do not keep valuables in the car and nor do I keep my car unlocked, that never happened to me in NY. People drink and smoke way too much and the meth problem is just terrible. I have to deal with noisy neighbors and stupidity from young people, which is why it is hard for people under the age of 25 to rent in NY. I see many people here that just live unhealthy lifestyles and obesity is pretty much the norm. I am used to clean cut men and here they all look as if they were on all night benders seven days a week. I guess dirty jeans , sneakers and looking like you were never introduced to a razor or a barber's chair is what you all call dressed to the tea. The women here are no better. In NYC woman care about their appearance and dress for success. I am in my 40's and I eat right, exercise and make sure that I always look my best when I am out and about. I do not look my age and I see girls here that look 10 years older than me due to the excess in beer consumption and chain smoking. If you never been out of Cheyenne I guess you would think that Cheyenne has alot to offer, as for the history channel, culture is best absorbed when you live it and breathe it not by turning on the TV with a beer in one hand and the remote in another.

I agree 100% with another poster who's view of Cheyenne is exactly what I experience on a daily basis. I also moved here from NYC a few years ago and my experience here has also not been positive. I do not agree that people here are friendly, it is just the opposite. I do not think that people here were ever taught to say Thank you or to say excuse me when wanting to pass by in a crouded Walmart or Target. Culturally Cheyenne is castrated, no museums unless you count the western museums and music is basically limited to country western stations on the radio and country western performers at Frontier Days. In NYC people are very into fitness and taking care of their appearance, people take pride in the way they look when going to work and school. I am 42 and I work out and eat right, the majority of the people here are overweight, and are chainsmoking alcoholics. The young people here look as if they roll out of bed when going to school, just for the record pajama bottoms are for bed time. Driving is terrible, people do not use turn signals and most of the people drive under the speed limits and do not let u pass unless y ou go around them. In all, I am pretty much out of here. I can make better money in NY and know that I do not have to deal with drunken noisy neighbors all hours of the night. The job market also sucks, this is why the majority of the young people leave when they graduate.
