Cincinnati, OH


Cincinnasty - 8/6/2018
I grew up here, left for the east coast for a decade, and returned. Now, I regret it every f@cking day!

While not quite in as bad of shape as many other cities in this region and it culturally has a number of offerings, what really makes it bad is it is ultra-conservative socially. You've got racists here, but unlike other places here the racists win. It's very cliquish....you've got this Ohio vs Kentucky and Eastside vs Westside dynamic....there is absolutely no unity. Then, your neighborhood choices are either working class/redneck that are aggressive and pick fights or nouveau riche that think they are entitled. There is almost nothing in between. Not to sound arrogant, but I'm told and am considered to be attractive, polished, and a good dresser. Never had problems fitting in and socializing on the east coast, but in this city I am very actively snubbed. Overall, the people are very rude. Sure, they can be rude on the east coast, but at least there I don't feel like I'm singled out.

Ohio, The Redneck State - 5/16/2018
In general, everyone looks like a Neanderthal, dress sloppily, fat because they consume too many carbs, and unfriendly. An Appalachian mentality prevails here, and redneck reaction is the norm. Upscale retail is lacking. State highway patrol crawls around like cockroaches often on witch hunts to write tickets. Property taxes are extremely high. Local income taxes are a pain in the rear because the forms are not easy to use, what is owed is sometimes difficult to determine, and you pay both for both where you work and where you live with many employers incapable of deducting for two jurisdictions.

Obnoxious nouveau riche N/S, rednecks in-between - 5/16/2018
Our realtor told us "You can't go wrong in Watrren County", Well, yes you can.

The people you find here are at two different extremes.

In Mason and Springboro, you have your pushy and douchy upper middle class that thinks the world revolves around them. Their success has become them, and they aren't down-to-earth nor respectful.

In the middle, you have a bunch of fight-picking rednecks. This is especially notable driving around here when they try to retaliate when you pass them or if you honk at them to avoid a potential accident they would cause. Some of them are also self-righteous and believe they are the traffic police; they will drive slow on purpose and do things to keep you from passing them such as drive in the middle of the road.

Redneck reaction - 4/9/2018
I've never encountered more redneck reaction in any place I've lived in my life until I moved here. It's a semi-regular occurrence.

Our realtor said "You can't go wrong in Warren County". Well, that's Mason and Springboro. Everything in between is redneck.

People get mad when you pass them on the road here. Some will actually drive under the speed limit on purpose solely to mess with you. Once you pass them, they get mad and speed up. Then, miraculously they are suddenly able to drive the speed limit as they tail you and chase you down the road and through town. People will drive fast to keep you from getting in front of them, and once you pull in back of them then start driving slow. If you honk at a driver to avoid an accident over something they did wrong, they will act aggressively and try to retaliate.

I passed someone on Morrow-Woodville Road after they were already driving well under the speed limit and then almost slowed to a stop for no apparent reason. I was chased by Morrow police, who pulled into my driveway, flipped their lights on when I was already in my garage, and then said "What are you doing?" talking to me like I'm some little kid.

I've had several people pick fights and gaslight me on the neighborhood social media website called Nextdoor, particularly in developments outside my own such as the Villages of Classicway over a post regarding a change in trash pickup during the holidays (Yes, you Samantha Louise Butscha and Eric Sanchez!). The instigator of that particular conflict, Samantha Louise who has a police record for using fake names (check Beenverified.com), made a disparging remark about me being middle-aged and called my husband a creep (my husband was not even involved in the altercation). The last person I would expect to unnecessarily smart off and pick a fight with me online would be a neighbor esp over something petty and stupid.

Being gay, this certainly wouldn't have been my first choice of places to live. If we had more time to look for a house, we wouldn't have. Surprisingly, we found two other gay couples in our development. We reached out to them; neither of them were interested in meeting us, and we got played by one of those. The one we got played by happened to be a retired minister! He kept reaching out to us and then suddenly stopped contact and acknowledgment, and I believe in his last coorespondence to me on Nextdoor that he was mocking one of my posts. After not hearing from him for a long time, he piggybacked off a later post I made on Nextdoor regarding people bagging their garbage better so it didn't blow around the neighborhood without any direct acknowledgment of me and prefacing it with "I don't want to offend anyone" (i.e. as if I did). That's not Christian behavior.

Some of our neighbors don't speak or acknowledge us. Some have never spoken nor introduced themselves.

The 1/2 percent of income taxes you pay get you roads with potholes, inadequate snow removal, low water pressure, and patronizing interactions from a couple of the village personnel. We were told the water pressure was good enough for them, and then they had the audacity to tack on $10 (without a vote) to everyone's water and sewer bill for improvements.

It's a rather unfriendly place. It's a solidly lower middle-class community, and it shows in the attitude and uncouth behavior of the people. I seriously don't think many of them realize that what they are doing is wrong.

We moved out of here two months ago and have none of these problems now. I'm very glad I no longer live here.

Beavercreek, OH


Sort of slummy and culture dictated by WPAFB - 6/7/2017
Essentially, I found this town rather slummy for what's supposedly and upper middle class suburb. The culture here too is dictated by the base since nearly everyone works there.

I spent four and a half miserable years here.

Essentially, your only employment opportunities are in healthcare or at the base.

I worked at the base; they were the most provincial and uncouth people I ever worked with. It was like a cult or being on another planet. Indeed, the people were weird. A mob psychology abounded there. They didn't want humans there but instead yes men and robots. This is also the only job I've ever worked at where management will actively hold you back without actually knowing you and solely based on whether or not they liked your smell when you first walked in the door. Indeed, they will badmouth you if called for a job reference. Active judgment abounds, and based on the looks of most of them they didn't have any room to judge anybody.

Shopping there sucks. The few malls that are there are struggling with limited options.

Because the Dayton area is small and in the shadow of other larger cities, I noted a sense of arrogance among people there as if they had to justify their existence there and prove themselves. It was also very cliquish too. I noted the same thing when I lived in Philadelphia.

I was also bullied and threatened by my apartment manager (Ashton Brooke in Beavercreek) over an negative online review. I was also bullied for various comments made while on Facebook by other locals. Indeed, the redneck element abounds there too.

The police force is lazy. I had a few issues that occurred where I needed their assistance and got no help. Beavercreek police unnecessarily shooting black people in Walmarts vindicates me.

Myrtle Beach, SC


Great, but attracts rednecks from the Midwest - 6/7/2017
It's a great vacation destination considering it's drivable from the Midwest and cheap. The water temperature is warm, and the weather is pretty good for as far north as it is. Has really good outlet shopping. Most of the locals are pretty nice; the few I've encountered that aren't are generally transplants (i.e. Owners of Seablue Restaurant, who are really from Philadelphia and harassed me relentlessly over a negative online review.....this is one place to avoid).

The only real negative is because it is cheap and drivable you get a lot of hillbillies from Ohio and Indiana. Indeed, Ohio and Indiana are where the hillbillies are, not always the south. They stick out like a sore thumb because they are so poorly dressed and uncouth. We were even told at one restaurant that we fooled them into thinking we were locals because we didn't look like the rest of the pack.

The water tower says it all - 5/15/2017
It's a great place to live if you are a redneck.

Really, when you cross over from Ohio it's like going to another country.

I grew up here and spent my formative years being bullied, even by teachers at school, and dodging fights. I could not wait to grow up and get away from here.

Too far north to be considered southern. Indeed, it isn't like the rest of Kentucky or even Cincinnati for that matter. I don't know what it is, and I don't think they know either. They certainly are proud of their water tower though. People that live in Cincinnati make fun of them.

I do not come here except to get cheap liquor at Costco (which they can't sell in the Ohio stores) or Bruster's ice cream. When I do come here, I get out as fast as I can.

Beavercreek, OH


re: Leave Beavercreek NOW, unless you work at the
- 5/15/2017
.....and I would say if you work at the base, try to find another job. They were the most provincial and uncouth group of people I ever worked with. Rampant unprofessional behavior and bullying abound. It was like being back in high school or on another planet.

Columbus, OH


Great place to live if you're an OSU football zomb - 4/26/2012
Everything here is about college football because the city isn't good enough to have a professional team. For a city that was touted as "up and coming", I was surprised how hillbilly it was. Third rate news talent, overrated restaurants and shopping, and people that don't know how to dress or act (throw out your dress clothes because you won't need them here no matter where you're going). Very unfriendly and cliquish people too. In the two years I was here, I didn't make one friend. Lived in a number of places including the east coast. Philadelphia was the worst, and Columbus comes in second.

As I like to tell people, Columbus is West Virginia's largest city.

Lawton, OK


Very hateful and dramatic law enforcement - 4/26/2012
I went to Lawton once while I was attending OU in Norman in the early 1990's and regret ever going there. I'm in an unfamiliar town driving in the rain at night. I am on a road going around the deserted mall, and I went through a red light. It did not seem to be a logical place for a light. Well, herw comes "50" blaring their sirens. Two cops come up, and one was like "Oh my god! Did you see what he did?" It was overly embellished. You would have thought I robbed a bank.

When I went to court, I was early. I said something jokingly to the clerk. He looked at me very hatefully and said "Excuse me?" In court, I explained to the judge why I ran the light, that I was a college student with inadequate income, I had been between jobs for a few weeks, and that I couldn't afford the ticket. He said "Well, this is just another one of your bills." Then, he cut me some slack and told me that he didn't have authority to arrest me outside the city limits (hint, hint - leave the city without paying the ticket, and nothing would happen to me aside from it being on my driving record)

As I leave the court room to deal with the same clerk as before, he starts harassing me and giving me grief. The judge had already given me permission to leave and get money from an ATM to pay the ticket (or leave town if I chose), and this guy with no authority starts ego tripping saying "How do I know you're going to come back if I let you leave?" The decision wasn't his to begin with.

Keep your crappy little town, Lawton! I've never been back.
