I Hate Iowa

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 43 People

    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...

    Alone In Iowa

    I was born and raised in Merrill, MI. A town with a population under a thousand. All I could think about growing up was that I wanted out. When I was 19 I met a boy from iowa at a county fair. We hit it off and kept talking after his week in MI was over. I came to iowa twice...

    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...

    Dweebland

    Every day since 1993 I have listened to the "noon and 6pm" siren blare from this town's firehouse with a population of 2000.  Do they not have effing watches?  Sirens are for ALARMS.  ALARMS are for emergencies.  Tonight the high school won the...

    Iowa Is a Godforsaken Waste Land

     I. Hate. Iowa. I cannot stress or punctuate this enough. I want to first start out by saying that I don't hate ALL Iowans. I have some very good friends here that I don't know what I would do without. BUT, here is my experience OVERALL: I moved here several years ago...

    Not A Fan Of This State Whatsoever

    Being an open minded, educated person from Detroit, Michigan, with experience in small town living and small town “personality” around Michigan, I moved to Iowa believing Americans are Americans no matter where you go.  I was dreadfully wrong.  A distinct...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...
