I enjoy where I live because of how everything is not only-child/teenage friendly, you're able to gain a sense of individuality around the neighborhoods. Schools, grocery stores, salons, gas stations, and even buses are so easy to walk to, I wouldn't trade where I live for anywhere else!

The response time for police/fire station/emergency response is too slow. A person with a serious medical condition would be dead by the time they got here. And if you don't live in a very "rich" neighborhood, the city doesn't care about providing public services in a timely manner. My great-grandmother had to wait months to get a tree removed that was posing a threat to her neighborhood, and the city wouldn't let her go to an outside source because it's their property.
Most of the people I know are finding any jobs they can just to gain the money they need but they never complain about their job. To them work is work and they don't have to stress over it!
