12. Don't do it!!!!

Hey - Don't move here.....it totally sucks.

Things I HATE about living here:

1) Cannot find ANY decent housing. Tried renting at first while we were looking for a home to buy. Bought a home after ou realtor, inspector, et. al. confirmed it was a good home. After sinking $30,000 into a $300,000 home in 13 months we sold it and built a brand new home from ABRAZO HOMES, LLC. This place is a piece of shit. WE've had to hire an attorney just to get them to give us the upgrades we paid for 3 months ago.

2) EVERYONE here will tell you it is IMPOSSIBLE to find ANY contractor to do ANYTHING correctly. Whetehr it be yard maintenance, plumbing, electrical, etc. they ALL suck. Some wont' even return your call. Others come by take down the info and tell you they will email you an estimate. Only to never be heard from again. This is so perplexing as I grew up in Wisconsin, spent 22 years in Seattle and throughout 50 years of living in those two places I NEVER, EVER saw so many screw-ups in my life!

3) Grocery stores suck! They have only one or two choices of any given item. The produce here is rotten by the time you get it home...which is perplexing b/c they grow this shit around here! My bet is that they'are just as lazy as all the other workers around here and they let the shit sit on the truck just until it's ready to go rotten and then they drop it off at the store. Also, you can go to the same corporate store in two different locations and those two stores, even though they are both Smith's, will have different products, the store will be laid out completely different and they discontinue anything good to eat. Not to ,mention how expensive groceries are here. Get this......$3.49 for a loaf of crappy bread! $3,19 for a quart of half and half

4) People here are lazy and are liars. They'll screw around all day so they can tell you they don't have time to do what they already promised you they'd do.

5) Local music scene SUCKS!....REALLY sucks!

6) We are run by a Republican Gov who screwed up the following:
a) Cut the tax rebates we WERE giving to Hollywood in order to entice them to shoot movies here. They were given a great tax break to shoot here IF they hired their extras and crew from NM. Well, Martinez did away with that....Hollywood is looking elsewhere now to film.

b) Rail Runner (passenger train that runs from ABQ to Santa Fe) she wanted to cut weekend trips....she was stopped b/c of her bad timing on this issue right before the election. She got re-elected......guess what sh'e gonna' do with the Rail Runner now?

c) We have the worst public schools in the nation. And we have all the hoodlums to prove it!

If you're a person of morals and values and know how things should be done.....then stay away from this place.

I regret moving here 100% - wish I never would have heard of this place.......
