"Industry and Impound Lots and Hookers, Oh My!"

This is the part of Phoenix where you go when you need a random car part or want to perhaps pick up a hooker. It's the ugliest, most forgettable part of Phoenix. South Mountain is nothing but industrial eye sores, tow lots and junk yards as far as the eye can see. If someone gets arrested by Phoenix P.D. and their car is impounded, they'll have to take a trip down to one of South Mountain's millions of car lots and reclaim it. Don't ever make the mistake of going to the Motor Vehicle Division located in this area; I worked here (for a repo company, go figure), and ended up having to visit the South Mountain M.V.D. for various reasons and the wait was unreal each time. I don't mean like an hour wait, because that's just the M.V.D.; I'm referring to HOURS AND HOURS. If you were there on a Saturday there's no way you'd stick around. I learned to be smart and only go on weekdays so I could at least get out of the office. When someone says "South Phoenix" it sounds bad for some reason. That's all myth. The South Mountain area isn't a bad area, it's just kind of sleazy. It has the strip clubs that aren't really registered as strip clubs because they're brothels, for example. It's not threatening to work here or live here, just boring and kind of icky.
