Wausau, WI

Wausau is an armpit community - 7/5/2016
I have lived in Wausau all my life except for spending 4-years in Rapid City, SD. I am very surprised at the many negative comments and beliefs about Rapid City... It just isn't so! Rapid is FAR better than Wausau. Wausau is extremely cold and unfriendly, and when I say cold I don't just mean the weather! I've visited many places and have never seen such cold, suspicious, excessively conservative people, and very judgmental. People from Wausau think their S---- don't stink and they're better than anyone else. Wausau thinks it's a high-class "special" place but it's not. People in Wausau don't believe in second chances, and if you're lucky enough to land a decent job you better watch your back constantly because here it is much easier to loose a job than get one. And if you're unlucky enough to get into any kind of trouble, or if your teenage kid gets into trouble, the Marathon County court system here just loves throwing the book at you no matter how petty your infraction was; they love making a mountain out of a mole hill and will surely nail you to the wall. Putting people on probation is one of their favorites, followed by a record that will make it sound like you are a felon and surely further hurt your chances of getting or keeping a job or enjoying a quality life here. People here are narrow-minded and assume the worst about a person... Just even look at someone's kid and they're screaming pedophile! Wausau is definitely a community for families only. If you have a family you'll probably blend in and not have too many problems; if you are a single person look out and good luck. Wausau will not be a very welcoming "home" for you. Kids growing up in Wausau will also be faced with the challenge of avoiding getting picked on/bullied, especially at the middle schools. It's really a shame because Wausau really is a beautiful area geographically and wonderful for outdoor enthusiasts, but that visual beauty is deceptive... home to the most vicious people I've seen anywhere, people who think they're all it and that Wausau is the only place on earth. Very similar to the Salem witch hunt days. To sum it up, Wausau is a "wanna be" high class "special" or "perfect" community, but it's far from it.
