I Really Dislike Tx and the People Here
I moved here 3 years ago from NYC and I must say that it took me 2 years to get adjusted to this culture. I had to get used to needing a car for absolutely anything. I had to get used to not being able to find a good place to eat past 10pm. I had to get used to not having a fresh bagel every morning. I had to get used to everything being all about the Cowboys or the Mavericks (okay not the hardest thing in the world but still...there are other teams, even in TX).
I thought I had acclimated but then it struck me...I know what I really dislike about Texas. It's the Texans. Case in point, where I came from, if you have a beef with someone you speak to them directly about it and resolve it. Not here...oh no, they'll be all meek about it to your face and then call your supervisor on you the next day telling about how rude you were to them.
Sorry kiddos...I'm not rude. I'm direct. There's a difference. If I tell you something that you don't like I am not being rude. I am following procedures and guidelines that my company has set and I cannot go against them just to make you happy.
If I tell you that you're income isn't high enough that is not rude...it is direct. Would you rather I spend 10 minutes talking about the weather and beating around the bush and indirectly saying the same thing to you. Frankly I have too much work to do to spend time bullshitting.
Sorry, I know this is turning into a rant about my job and my residents and/or potential residents and I don't want to get off track.
So in the end...Texans would prefer to be babied and coddled instead of just dealing with the facts. I don't play that. That's not my way and I don't think it will be.
Anyway, I don't see myself in the middle of hell much longer. I'm already looking at getting back to the East Coast and civilisation.
