Today, the weather was beautiful, so I decided to go out skating. I guess I took a wrong turn into a bad neighborhood, because I ended up being chased several blocks by a group of jacked-up thugs wielding baseball bats and taunting, "Skate or die, homie!" FML

It's not like cities or towns have signs that say "You are now entering a bad neighborhood". Most people probably wouldn't know if their town/city even has a bad area, let alone where it starts or ends.


This is not even remotely true if you live in a metropolitan area, 74.

Take St. Louis, for example. I know exactly where I shouldn't be.

Edit: plus, you can usually tell a bad neighborhood by the quality of property upkeep and/or the people you see outside.

That's not always true though. I live in the city and I know vaguely which suburbs have bad reputations, but I wouldn't know which specific areas are the "bad neighborhoods".
And while you might be able to tell you're in a bad area once you're there, #2's comment seemed to be implying that the OP should have been able to tell they were entering a bad area just by looking around, and it isn't always that simple. It's not like there are signs around the entrance to bad neighborhoods, or the sky suddenly darkens as soon as you're on "the wrong side of the tracks" so to speak.

Ot's not a St.Louis thing I've lived in St. Louis AND DC and i've spent some time in a couple other places too. I know when I'm in a good neighborhoid vs a bad one. However in DC they are very xlose together and you can walk through both multiple times on your way to the store. It's kind of amusing.

it's also a Little Rock thing. I may not know every street in the city but I know 99% of where I shouldn't be if I want to avoid trouble.

"Today, the weather was beautiful so i decided to play baseball with my friends. We tried to get this other skating guy to play with us because he looked friendly. He ran from us after i invited him. FML"

Yes, I was simply referring to the viral "Bed Intruder" video on YouTube. Didn't mean to come off as "ignorant," but I definitely recommend to watch that video on YouTube to understand my comment. Thanks!
