    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...

    well here I am! I made my first trip to iowa

    for business and the moment I got here its been CRAP. I walked into the 'best' hotel in the city only to find the place a disaster area, musty, and with nothing but rude help. I got settled into a room that smelled as if the last occupancy were still there rotting under the...

    My wife and I moved here to be close to our

    daughter. We are seniors and we live on a small SS income. Example: I get 750 a month and my wife gets 600. That's 1350 a month for rent, utilities, groceries, doctors and personal items. We get meals on wheels mon-fri which helps a little but because of the uncaring people that...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Not A Fan Of This State Whatsoever
