    Town Hates Me

    I've been living here for 10 years, now. I suppose hate is a strong word, perhaps dislike, distaste or disfavor would be more appropriate descriptions of my feelings on the subject. I've lived in diverse settings ranging from small towns to huge cities, but this place feels like...

    It's not completely terrible.

    ..it's just that there is nothing to do here. This is a town where old republicans come to die. It's perfect for my parents, but for me, a straight man in his twenties who is desperate for a little action, it's not exactly ideal. I need some time away from this town and live a...

    This Town Is Dying In It's Sleep

    I think they stopped progressing in the 60s.   No mass transit, museums, unions are 'evil' and not allowed, monopolies on gas, electric, phone...It's crazy!  Some areas have literally just gotten landlines in the 80s! $8/hr and mandatory overtime is the job norm.  It's so dull...

    Conservative Small Town

    Conservative. Small. Boring. Predictable. Depressing. Those are just a few of the words that describe my opinion of the town I am currently living in. I don't really mind small towns at all. I just wish this one weren't so damned conservative. I thought small southern towns were...

    Worst Town In The Usa

    This place is boring.  Nothing to look forward to, some places dont even have cell service, much less public transportation.  No need for public transportation, nothing to get to.  the people in this town like it this way...why are people so weird?
