Basically, they're trading small, white, old, conservative and rich for bigger, more diverse, younger, liberal, and less affluent.
The move is bound to be a bit of a culture shock for these self-proclaimed "one-percenters." Being of wealth, they really don't need to leave the lofty land of Arlington. They just want to, mainly to cut their cost of living with lower taxes.
To aid them in adjusting to the declasse Columbus lifestyle, Buster offers these tips for fitting in:
- Most people in Columbus assign no status or value to your bank balance.
- Most are not Republican.
- Most do not have a broker.
- Most do not play golf.
- Some do not have a yard.
- Most will not recognize you. Many neighbors will simply ignore you.
- You'll hear hear many more non-English speakers than you're accustomed to hearing in U.A.
- Most Columbus dogs are mutts, not pure-breds.
- Unlike the semi-official U.A. "uniform" of button-downs, khakis, plaids, scarves, boat shoes, $200 sunglasses, and anything from Talbot's, Ralph Lauren, or L.L. Bean, there is no particular Columbus uniform. Wear whatever.
- The City of Columbus picks up your trash for no additional charge.
