They can't be immoral in the UK.

They have those cameras on every street corner and even inside houses.

I live in KY, but I'm from Bakersfield, CA...you don't know how true that statement really is.

Dry Heat Matters.

Hell, All Heat Matters.

This is not about their problems as a couple. Although they no doubt have their issues, they deal with those issues together, which is what makes them so great for one another. However, this issue is not one she can go over with her partner, because he is not here, and she needs to see the reality of things for herself so that she can function without randomly turning into a blubbering wreck all of a sudden in the meantime. So specifically, this is her problem, and as a friend of very long and close association, I wanted to help, because that is what friends do when you are in trouble.

This here, is about her anxiety, about this trip. Nothing else, it has no deeper meaning, it is not something to get all Freudian about.

I have a Friend on a 3 month contract in Arizona.
Hes been jetting off every weekend to live as much of the "American Experience" as he can fit in.
No problems at all, aside from some locals struggling withhis Welsh accent.

Only upper middle and upper class types have internal cameras on their security systems these days really. Very, VERY few people outside that bracket have CCTV at all, and those that do, generally have those systems primed for perimeter view only. They often have passive infrared sensors inside however, linked to their alarm systems.

Just stop it!

Everyone knows that Amerrica is violent and England is just like Benny Hill!

Wait, there's actually things in that state? I figured it was just a big buffer zone between Mexico and Las Vegas.

Is that how the rest of the world views us right now? Full of Nazi-like Trump supporters, constant gang violence and terrorist attacks? That's concerning, to say the least.

So when you went a man chased your old ass around while smacking you on your bald head? Did you sing tawdry ballads with him too?

The Benny Hill part is accurate. Everywhere I go, every step I take, I get accompaniment from a deranged saxophonist with a taste for cheeky ditties.

While I chased scantily-clad women.

To music!

No I do not think so Aldakoopa.

I think my friend is just worried. This is the first time her and her fellow have been apart for any length of time, since they first got together, and they have been living together for some time now, so they are rarely apart for any longer than it takes to complete a shift at work.

I think this fact has focused her attention on all the negatives, to the point where its all she can see, which is why its great that this thread is full of great advice, straight from people who live there or have experience in Arizona, because it will shake her out of the ridiculous notion that there is a massive difference between him walking down the street here in the UK, and him walking down the street in Arizona. I cannot, because I have never been there, so my word is not worth a damn on that front. But I know if she sees this thread, she will be put at some ease. Provided, of course, that AugustusMasonicus, DBCowboy and others cease posting satire, dressed up as OP-Ed!

NO! NO, NO, NO!

Snakes are only a problem for Samuel L. Jackson!

The creatures you need to worried about are scorpions. They are small and nasty. They hang out in places that people like to hang out. You cannot see them until you are right on top of them. And their sting hurts like the mother of all stings. So bad that when I lived in Phoenix there was an ambulance call out to the apartment building because somebody slipping on their shoes to take the garbage out stepped on one. And they went into anaphylactic shock (or started to) so in came the EMTs.

 


TrueBrit, AZ is a rather awesome place! Tell your friend to look up Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives for true American decadence.

And TB, tell your friend, Always empty out your shoes!

Oh man. . . Arizona?

Just visiting is a death sentence. I hear that's where they send people if they want them dead.

Too dangerous. Much safer here in Syria!

I prefer North Korea. No one ever gets murdered here. Not ever.

Food kinda sucks though, but hey, what's a little bit of sawdust bread every once in awhile compared to personal safety?
