    If you come to Florida be prepared to say

    goodbye to the plants and flowers you used to know. I was never much of a gardener but members of my family were and I came to know a lot of plants and flowers and developed a certain affection for them. So if you come to Florida, say goodbye to all the Spring flowers you knew...

    10. Heat does not cause traffic problems.

    Think about all the times it has taken you hours to get home from work because of snow and ice. Sure, if you live on the Cape or near the beach there's traffic in the summer, but who cares? 9. Nearly twice as many people die from exposure to cold weather than those who succumb...

    I live in South Florida

    and hate it. Too hot, too humid, it does not even look or feel like USA. Too expensive, jobs suck, salary sucks even more, no seasons, summer all year long... Horrible drivers, terrible police who abuse their authority. Gosh I'm even forgetting how to speak English!! Uneducated...

    Florida Is Boring!!!

    I have relatives in Florida. Even as a toddler I knew that state as no good. The people are boring and unenthused, it's too hot to enjoy nature, which may I add, is dry, ugly, brown, and dying, and there's nothing enteresting there. Everywhere I go there's a Walmart, Beals, or K...

    Florida Is A Close To Hell As One Can Get.

    I really hate this place with a passion. I was relocated here back in the early 80's when my new husband got out of the Army. We had 2 children and I wanted a positive future for them. Where I am from general motors shut down and so did the town. I felt that there was a better...

    The Stories

    I love most everyone's stories on here and I too feel the pain, depression and unrest of all of you. I am going to do my best to get out before summer hits once again. (Does summer ever really go away here?) It is going to be very difficult but I plan to sell everything I own...

    Florida completely sucks.

    Especially south Florida. The people down here are lazy, have no ambition whatsoever, are flaky beyond belief, and are total dipshits. The women are pathetic. Almost every one that I meet lives with their mothers. Even in their 30s and 40s. The women in this godforsaken state...

    People who get tired of Northern winters tend

    to move to Florida looking for paradise and a place without snow. The problem is, it's too extreme of a change. Unless you LOVE hot weather (and I don't mean Michigan summer hot. I mean sauna hot), you're just exchanging a miserable winter for a miserable summer. As someone who...

    and when I say hate that is an understatement. It is always hot and humid, there are bugs everywhere, crime lurks on every corner, and the people there are selfish jerks. Don't ever move there!
