From my epic and ever-popular “24 Reasons to Leave California” post…
It seems more and more people are getting fed up with the general situation in California. Even those who have spent their entire lives there and beginning to realize that California is simply overrated. It’s simply just out of control, between the raging socialist, moronic policies, the homeless problems, the prices (obviously), and everything else…
…anyways, the post is below, and my comments are in bold.
Your blog was very entertaining!! I googled reasons why California sucks and this blog was listed.
I recently moved back to SoCal after being away for 10 years between Texas and Nevada. I’m sad to say this, but I hate California. My husband and I moved back so that our kids will get to know their grandparents, aunts, uncles etc. ( bec god forgive our families ever leave this expense ass state)
The list of hate is much longer than the list of like.
My list of hate includes:
1. Public schools are CRAP!
2. Transportation is CRAP!
3 School lunches are also crap according to my kids so they refuse to buy it. They rather have a ham and cheese sandwich from home. It’s funny how lunch is over 3 dollars in CA and it’s horrible. Good thing the kids who quality for free lunches eat that crap! (TX lunch is 1.25 btw)
4. Traffic is ridiculous and I don’t even live in LA.( My road rage is increasingly getting worse every time I’m behind the wheel)
5. Gas prices, I can’t even explain the rage those prices give me since I used to pay 40 dollars for a full tank and now I’m paying 80+.
7. Rude people
8. Food prices are inflated.
9. Job market
10. Child care is 2x more expensive (2 working parent household)
No amount of money is enough money in California and we make very good money.
The list goes on and on!
I want to like it in California, but after seeing how other cities and states have it better, it’s really hard.
I completely understand why you left. I wouldn’t be back here if it wasn’t for my kids to know their family.
I feel California is eating away at their people as if they want everyone to fail and live off 2 grand a year and claim food stamps, free school lunches, free healthcare, free housing, everything free if you decide to be a loser to society.
Way is California going to SHIT!?!?!?
