We asked, and you answered. We wanted to know what places in Amarillo are you most likely to get yelled at. Here is what you told us.

Walmart Customer Service


I mentioned the parking lot at any Walmart, and failed to even consider what might be happening inside. One of our responses from Laura in Amarillo reminded us that working the customer service desk at Wally World is no walk in the park.

Speaking of Walmart...

Any Retail Job


One of my favorite responses was from Traci in Pampa. Traci says, "Just work retail. They will come to you." I've worked retail, and when I read that I almost fell over laughing.

It's true. I've been screamed at, cussed at, had t-shirts thrown at me all while working retail.

Chick-fil-A Drive-Thru Lines


Erica brought up a really good point. Her pick was drive-thru lines at any Chick-fil-A that backs out into the street. I personally am guilty of having a choice word or two for someone who gets in line, blocking off a whole lane of traffic, just for some of the Lord's chicken.

Tascosa High School Around 7:50AM


This one is so oddly specific, I have to believe that the experience was still fresh for Melinda. She raises a good point though. Really any school drop off is going to be heated, especially right now at the start of the school year. You have the old pros, the newbies, the early birds, and the late-runners all trying to get through the line as quick as possible.


At Your Call Center Job


That picture is a lie. No one that I know who works at a call center has ever been that happy about it.

This is another one I've had personal experience with, and Kayla is on point with this one. Even when you have really good news, people just seem prone to take out their frustrations on whoever is on the other end of the line.

That also doesn't account for the corporate overlords hovering behind you wondering why you aren't taking as many phone calls as the person across from you, or why your sales numbers are only where they should be instead of higher.

Good call (no pun intended) Kayla.

MEMES.......a la Amarillo, Texas

Check out some of these Amarillo-flavored memes that we've curated from around the World Wide Web and social media. They're surprisingly on-point and even a little savage.

Amarillo Landmarks: Negative Yelp Reviews

Yelp can be a strange and angry place. That's what I found out recently when I decided to sort the reviews by "lowest rating" first.

I was okay with the people upset over bad service and what not. But I came across a few reviews that, for lack of a better word, left me speechless in their scathing negative reviews on some of Amarillo's most iconic places. Prepare your self for plenty of head shaking and "I dunno" shrugs.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
