It's always fun to listen to people talk about the things they love and hate about living in Amarillo. The things they love about it always seem to be the same. Nice people for the most part, predictable weather, and lots of restaurants.

It's seeing all the comments and things people hate about the city that crack me up, and if you look at a history of things people have said over time, it'll amuse you. Some things change, some stay the same.

Out of fun, I decided to Google "things we hate about Amarillo". It started bringing up old Reddit threads going back to 2018, and it's hilarious to read some of these.

In one of the threads I found, the person had a job offer here in Amarillo and was looking at moving here from Augusta, GA. They had asked about pros and cons of the city. The post was from six years ago, so not sure if they accepted the job and maybe still live here.

The responses for the most part were positive about the city, but even six years ago, things such as "crime rate is ridiculous", "the amount of meth and crack addicts are unbelievable", "corrupt small town politics", "crumbling infrastructure...except for the plethora of churches and gas stations" were popping up. None of these things have seemingly changed.

However, my favorite response to this was simple, basic, and to the point. The user simply stated, "Stay in Augusta". I might have laughed a little, read it again, and just burst out in laughter.

I'm not saying Amarillo is a bad place to live, it's definitely grown on me over time. Just like any city, there is good and bad. You have to take the bad with the good in order to truly enjoy a city. I just thought the responses were funny.

So go ahead, Google "things we hate about Amarillo" and enjoy the plethora of comments. It's good for a laugh.

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.
