I Hate Iowa

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 40 People

    The Only Thing Bad About Iowa Is The Weather.

    All of these people complaining about their experiences with the PEOPLE from Iowa are about the most idiotic and ignorant I think I have ever read. For one you can't base an entire population of your very limited experience. For two its the PEOPLE in Iowa that you hate, not the...

    Ha!

    All I have to say is that this group is a bunch of whining idiots who should consider relocation if their greatly exaggerated sounding stories are true. I've lived in Iowa my whole life, and when visiting other states anywhere from Minnesota and Wisconsin to Florida and Texas I...

    Why Do Friends Betray You?

    I was friends with a woman for 15 years. I helped her a lot by givin her advice about her children. Now when she sees me she says she is busy and she lies and says she did not get my text email or call. I don't get it. I have never done anything bad to her. I know she can't be...

    Can't Take It.

    Uhhhhh......I am so frustrated with Iowa living. I cannot stand to be in the grocery store behind white trash buying their groceries with food stamps and paying for their carton of cigarettes and boozes with cash.  Every time you walk into the store you are not greeted...

    I Can Relate!

    It was so refreshing to find these stories. I have lived here for over 20 years. When I first moved here for my husbands job, I was surprised to find out that everyone thought they were so cool, smart, etc compared to ugly Omaha Nebraska, where I lived previously. People in...

    Come For Snow In May...Stay For The Racism!

    The armpit of the midwest. A high of 33° in MAY? Right here! A city/state stuck in 1993? Check. An unhealthy obsession with black and gold? Got it. Can't stand this place, can't wait to leave

    I Want To Burn This Entire State To The Ground.

    I hate this place. I wrote an essay about it. This is an excerpt: Perhaps it is unfair for someone who has only lived here since last August to poke fun at Iowa City, but I say to hell with that. I’ve seen you for what you are. I’ve witnessed that ripple on your surface...

    Not A Fan Of This State Whatsoever

    Absolutely Clueless!!

    Here is another way Iowan's are just stupid hicks. The other day at the grocery store, the bagger was a little upset that I brought my own bags. When I told her that plastic bags take 100 years to biodegrade and they have been banned in states that do have a clue — like...

    Stupid Can Redemption Law In Iowa

    Why do they even bother to have can redemption when there is no where to redeem them? All they have are those stupid machines that feed the cans one by one until the machine breaks down, which ALWAYS happens. This state is so out of touch and backwards, I can't believe I moved...
