I am a San Diego native.
Most of the people here work in the service industry. Heck, San Diego's main economy is in the service industry. Service industy (look it up)= kissing someone else's arse.
I am a fabricator, I come from a long line of men who make a living selling the things they make with there own hands. I believe in hard work, family values, honesty, ect ect.... San Diego use to be like this back in the old days. When the primary economy was based on hard work; fishing, manufacturing of all sorts, military, aerospace,... These sectors are long gone, and this city is becoming what it is not. You will see parts of LA, NY, SF here and there, and San diego is no longer a unique laid back place anymore. The bread and butter we grew up on has gone stale. Everyone and there mother is a transplant with more money then you making there living off of real estate, and phucking up the cost of living in this town.
The peole here sucks too, becasue all the cool ones are leaving.
