We’re a Mean One Mr. Forbes
Forbes magazine took it upon itself to create a list of the most miserable cities based on the Misery Index and the Misery Score compiling a list on Forbes.com. Evidently we are #5.
How miserable is Philly? The residents of the City of Brotherly Love once booed Santa Claus and pelted him with snowballs at an Eagles game. Maybe it’s the long commutes, violent crime and plethora of toxic waste sites that has people grumpy. Philadelphia scored in the top 20 in all three areas.
As if Forbes telling us we are a miserable bunch wasn’t enough the LA Metbloggers have decided that we suck based on this list with their post entitled, Detroit, New York, Philly, Chicago All Suck Worse.
Well LA let me tell you something. We tossed snowballs at Santa Claus because he was a fraud and we don’t like frauds. We enjoy our inconsistent weather. We like our long commutes. We like our tixic waste sites, we call them playgrounds. We like to dodge bullets on a daily basis because we are bad ass and we like to live on the edge. We’re not a miserable bunch, we’re happy so F off.
