Forget Kentucky! Don't move here or you will regre Posted On: 5/3/2008 12:59:43 PM
I have had the misfortune of living in Kentucky for the past 10 years. I have lived in three areas, Edmonton, Hardyville, and now Cave City, while having visited other areas as well. Every place in Kentucky is generally the same. The people are really rude unless they think you have money and then they are super nice to you. They are EXTREMELY nosey and ask all sorts of personal questions. Every house we have bought here we have had to have fixed up because people here don't take care of anything, and then every person we had hired ripped us off in one way or another and did a half-assed job to boot. We've gotten to where we fix what we can ourselves, (and we do a much better job than these "professionals.") The people don't care about their appearance and they either wear what they can afford from Army surplus or the Good Will. Most of their money goes towards ciggarettes and alcohol. And it doesn't matter if there are no smoking signs, people here smoke wherever they want. Manners are non-existant and people cough without covering their mouths and I have even seen grown people picking their noses.
If you love animals you will have a hard time seeing the animal abuse that goes on here. People let there dogs and cats run lose, especially in the rural parts, and so they get ran over, and if they live they don't even bother taking them to the vet and the poor animal winds up dying a slow death. There is a LOT of drugs that go on here and if someone here has a pitbull(s) you know for certain they are into drugs. (And there are a LOT of pitbulls here too btw.) The education system is nil. People here, especially in the rural parts, can't hardly read or write and I knew one guy in his 20's who didn't know how to tell time. Most of these people you can't even understand because they don't talk like normal people. Its sad to see the kids here. They act just as dumb and as bad as their parents. And the parents don't teach them anything, not even to look both ways before crossing the street. I've had near misses with kids AND parents numerous times, and then they blame the driver! They let 5 year old kids on ATVs with out any protection whatssoever, never mind the fact that they are on a ATV meant for a teen. That happens a lot, as well as letting little kids deer hunt and chew tobacco. I wouldn't raise my child here, too many bad influences. And once you move here it's hard to get out because people here tend to hire their friends and family instead of "outsiders
