Keep my security deposit! $60 application fee and the place is yours. Please see my craigslist ad for more information and pictures. Of course shoot me a text if you are interested. Moving back home to Michigan as Charlotte really didn't work out for me and my husband.

I’ve lived in Charlotte for all my life and I have never wondered this, but my mother and sister have begun pondering this.

My mom says she was once told that the central business area of Charlotte (what we call uptown) was always north of where Charlotte was developing, so they’d be “looking up” towards “Uptown”.

My dad, who lived in Charlotte as a child, then came back with his family, says that a while ago someone came up with the idea that “Uptown” just sounded better than “Downtown”, so he took a petition to the city council to have it be called “Uptown” instead. Apparently it was denied, but people just started calling it Uptown.

Do either of these sound right? What have you guys heard?

Maybe this should wait until tirade Tuesday but can anyone explain to me why it's seemingly okay for the 'Funny Bus' (a comedy tour bus) to park on 7th street blocking the only through-lane at the busiest hours of the day? Either I am seriously unlucky and just happen to pass by it every time I drive West on 7th or it parks there for inordinate amounts of time. Their website even lists that spot as where the bus waits. It's real bad especially when the train is going by because cars turning left into the 7th street garage can back up and you could potentially get stuck on the tracks. It seriously seems like the worst spot for this stupid bus and there's plenty of places close by that would be less in-the-way. So I'm wondering how this is legal or if they have a deal with the city

Found a Parakeet in the yard being stalked by a neighbor's cat. Ive created him a makeshift cage out of a bucket, chicken wire, a towel and a small glass of water. I have next to no experience with birds so if anyone either knows who owns it (real long shot) or wants to take it id appreciate it.

edit: added picture

edit: u/hilaritytohorror is going to take the little guy off my hands. Thanks for the messages everyone

Long story short, someone might be taking me to Charlotte North Carolina in the near future (don't ask...)

I really wanted to go there so I could film a YouTube video of some of the buildings, but I was wondering, what parks in Charlotte North Carolina are the best ones to get views of all the sky scrappers?

Please share...

I need to replace a front bushing on my e46 bmw. I watched a youtube tutorial of someone doing 2 replacements in under an hour. Anyone know of any mechanics around Charlotte that aren't crazy expensive?

Here it is Charlotte! It's super simple. Take a frown, and turn it upside down! Nothin' but love here. The idea is quite simple...

If you have something NICE and/or POSITIVE to say about a local person place or thing (sure, lets include big box stores, and franchises) that gave you a smile or just plain made life a little less stressful at some point in the last week, show some love! Take a break from the tirade thread, and feel good while doing it! Maybe your good vibes will cause a ripple effect, and send a smile to someone else, or give them the motivation to get up, get out, and enjoy this beautiful thing called life, and do so in our city! This is a win/win situation. Why not take advantage of it?

It doesn't have to be about a money saving deal you saw. It doesn't have to be related to financial savings at all, really. In fact, the idea is to stay away from that sort of thing and focus more on the human interaction, and someone else just making you wanna say thank you. Obviously, lets stay away from personal info and full names to keep a little bit of ano-nom-ah-nimity or whatever, LOL!

Now's the time to kill weeds, fill in low spots with topsoil, and top-dress your entire lawn with peat moss, humus, and other amendments. Get aeration done, rake out excess leaves, and put down new seed and fertilizer. Water every day for two weeks until the grass sprouts, and every second or third day after that for another few weeks before the first cutting. Take the time to sharpen your lawn mower blade, and clean the underside of the mower. Wouldn't hurt to clean/replace the spark plug and air filter, either.

All the other buildings were lit up beautifully with rainbow colors and Duke just had plain white.

I'm going to be starting flying lessons soon, I have my intro flight on tuesday after work. Just curious where private pilots around here usually fly to. True cross-country seems infeasible as I could get roundtrip commercial tickets for the cost of an airplane rental.

Hi. I recently moved back home to Charlotte from Raleigh after getting into some legal trouble. I have a misdemeanor simple assault charge. I'm currently living with my parents, but I would like to move out within the next few months into my own place again. I will be attending UNCC next semester after taking some time off. I work in the Arboretum shopping center, so I'm looking for a place in the south charlotte/matthews area.

I'm having a hell of a time finding an apartment complex that will accept me based on the background check since the charge is fairly recent (April of this year). Credit checks and providing proof of income is not an issue for me. I've applied to a few places and have been denied by all of them because of the background check.

I've been checking craigslist pretty regularly and I've joined a renters/subleasing group on FB for the Charlotte area. I would really prefer to rent my own place instead of renting out someone's room in their house. I understand I'm not really in a position to be picky, so any and all advice is welcome. Thanks guys.

Just got home from vacation and the skyline lighting up the clouds and surrounding lightning was a sight to be seen. It's great to be back in the Queen city!

You all want a good laugh? I'm from Atlanta but I was visiting Charlotte a few weeks ago, drove on a semi highway road called Independence Blvd and was blown away by how much it reminded me of New Jersey. Nothing special, just thought it was neat and unexpected. Charlotte also had a lot more ethnic diversity and mom and pop stores on the corner in that side of town than I was expecting. I'm originally from the NE and nowhere in Atlanta has reminded me of the north but having sudden flashes of it in Charlotte was interesting. Though I'm not sure if you all like that or not.

I have done some marketing in the past and some sales as a teller, but I realized sales wasn't for me since quotas give me bad anxiety.

I am looking for a basic administrative position, without any of the quotas, cold calling, etc. you'd expect in any kind of sales/marketing position.

I would love to get a job as an entry-level programmer of sorts, and I have a firm understanding of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I've built one website, but it's just a file on my computer. I can PM a resume/LinkedIn if needed.

I'm looking to have an older Remington Bel-Air and a newer electric model serviced. Anybody know someone who does that?
