post three negative things about your city


1) Has North America’s (or was it the worlds) busiest hwy (hwy 401)
2) This hwy also has the most accidents in North America (or was it the world)- try getting on time for school or work driving on the Hwy 401....you have to see leave like 2+hours ahead of time sometimes
3) The price for houses is so expensive and if you are interested in new houses be prepared to see the smallest rooms

that’s all I can think of right now

3. Everything closes at 8pm.

1. corrupt politicians who get rid of 1/2 the police force because there's no money in the budget, but give themselves nice raises.
2. people who have lived in this town since they were babies, in the same house and while liviing 20 minutes from NYC have never ventured into that place because it's scary.
3. Way way too much section 8 housing.

1) The traffic is ridiculous at all times of the day and night there's a traffic jam for no reason, and most of the people can't drive.

2) The urban sprawl. Dallas/Fort Worth area extends from the far east tips to the far west for about 70 or so miles including the major suburbs and it's still spreading. It's moving out North so far that 45 miles outside of downtown Dallas you can still consider yourself in the Dallas area. I'm soon expecting "Dallas" to stop just on the other side of the Oklahoma border.

3) The politicians act like a bunch of children. I mean seriously. Name calling and fisticuffs aren't uncommon.

1) House prices have increased so much that my house value is double what it was 3 years ago. Good until you want to buy another house.

2) Police are so bored that they harass the crap out of everyone for the stupidest stuff.

3) Traffic stinks because there was no planning in the city's growth.

noone's done Seattle yet, so here goes:

1) Traffic & Drivers themselves . high influx of people from all over the world (& different driving styles) coupled with a poorly constructed city on impossible terrain, and BAM, traffic jams in 3/4th of the city, 12 hours a day. plus i swear there's more 50+ y/o asian women on the road here than in the rest of the US combined.

2) Rain. 9 months out of the year. if you like the rain, then maybe the 3 months of drought are bad for you.

3) People. Shallow, nice in a horribly fake way, passive agressive. I've lived here for 6 years and havn't maintained a true friendship with anyone for more than a year or two (meanwhile, everyone I know has strong friendships with people who do not live in seattle, myself inculded).

I hate this town.

1- Hook turns in the city. (If you want to turn right at an intersection, you get in the left lane, wait to the far left of the intersection, wait until your light turns red, and then turn right across four lanes and two tram tracks.)

2- 99% of the city is just offices, there are only a few main streets of shops and interesting stuff.

3- We have 'dynamic' speed signs in some areas, where it changes between 40kph and 60kph depending on the time of day, and some side streets are 40kph, some are 50kph, and half aren't signposted. You spend more time staring at your speed than on the road.

- Traffic/Construction: They've been working on the same stretch of interstate (I-40) for 5 years, and the current plan is to continue working on it for the next 5 years.

- Vols: During the football season, over 100,000 pricks get together and get drunk every gameday (let's just say I stay away from that part of town on those days).

- Parking on campus: You know there is a problem when the University of Tennessee at Knoxville has part of its BUDGET 1,000,000+ parking tickets being handed out.

1) Extreme high unemployment nearly 25% with more layoffs coming
2) Extremely suckass job market (temp services are about all there is and they offer $8 max and have their pick of workers.)
3) I don't have the money to buy land and houses right now and take advantage of the low market prices.
I just love people who use the excuse "I use/do this because I LOVE the feeling/joy/happiness it brings me" and expect you to be ok with that as you watch them destroy their life blindly following. My response is, "I like to put forks in an eletrical socket, just LOVE that feeling, can't ever get enough of it, so will you let me put this copper fork in that electric socket?"

That is becuase the whole state of massachusetts is home to some of the worst drivers in the world. Which make some of us the best drivers for having to deal with them. I love it how roads in Mass are crappy, until you get to that state line, then all of a sudden they turn GREAT.

Im really not complaining though.

At least where I live in MA
East Brookfield

1)NOBODY knows where it is, not even the people three towns ovah.
2)There is nothing here.
3)When you want to do something cool you have to drive 35 minutes to the center of Worcester.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

lol I was just about to post that exact same thing about Texas. When I visit my family in Alabama and in Georgia they go on and on about how many people speak just Spanish. But I have yet to see any evidence of this for myself compared to home. I mean you don't live in an area with a lot of Spanish speakers unless most of the fast food joints have their entire menus in spanish and in English(with Spanish being the predominate language). Or grocery stores adding entire aisles of "ethnic" goods. I remember when that stuff used to be confined into a tiny little shelf in the bread aisle now every store I go into has at least ONE aisle full of the stuff. But I'm not complaining because I kind of enjoy all the latin women...
