Moving from the South to the American Midwest was nice at first. The people here seemed to be nicer. Now it seems I cannot connect with anyone. The people I have met are stuffy and need to loosen up. Even my fantastic boyfriend seems to be “stuffy” at times. The people here are so self-righteous- especially when it comes to recycling. It almost seems that people get upset if you order a beverage to go because the cup is made of plastic. Yes, the cause it noble but are they not considering the rights and needs of the customer?
When I first moved here I was really happy because it seemed the people were more polite and the area was generally more liberal. All the people I met when I first moved here are now off the radar. I don’t get invited out anymore by these people for some reason. I read on a tea bag today “let things come to you.” That seems to be the only good news I’ve received lately so I’ll stick with it.
