Philadelphia is a Cesspool

Hey, Philly Sucks,

We just started a new Facebook page, where we have spewed all of our hatred for Philadelphia in the space of less than 24 hours. We are a husband and wife team just getting started on this venture.

I lived in Philly from 1986 to 1993, and he lived in Philly on and off for many years. We both have numerous ill memories and experiences from having lived in Philly, but we aren’t over it, since we are still in the suburbs within smelling distance of Philly.

He has hundreds of stories to tell, and he’s not here to tell them, but the best story I can give you is the time I got motion sickness from the putrid fumes of a Philadelphia city bus and fainted just after stepping off the bus on my way to my classes at U Penn. I took two steps off the bus and fainted, landing face down on the sidewalk. When I came to, I noticed that people were stepping over me. I had blood trickling down my forehead. I got up and staggered over to someone asking him if he had a tissue so I could wipe the blood from my head. He reluctantly gave me his napkin and then proceeded to finish stuffing his face with a breakfast sandwich. Not one person asked me if I was okay or if they could get me some help, and no I didn’t look anything like a homeless person, not that that should matter. I was a relatively new transplant from my native New York City to this place called the City of Brotherly love. I was not impressed. At least if people
step over you in New York, they don’t demand conformity while offering nothing of worth in return.

Anyhow, here’s our brand spanking new Facebook page. We need LIKES, so please share our page. My husband feels we should spread the hate.

I know this site was created to log your complaints about Philly sports teams, but I can’t f×$!ing stand the Philadelphia Parking Authority. They are a relentless force of evil. They will ultimately drive me out of this city one and for all. Philadelphia has always been my home and I’ve always defended it fiercely but lately I feel like the city of brotherly love has got it out for me. I am so fed up with the bull shit costs of living in this city. I spend more money on bull sh*t than 8 can afford to. I am dying the slow death of a million little paper cuts. I am so mad at this city right now, I just had to vent.

A new area I should move into?

I’m here visiting for the first time ever for a conference.
I’ve only been here half a day and I can’t wait to get out of this shithole.
It’s 3:30am and I’m wide awake at the downtown sheraton because
Classless ill mannered maggots have been slamming doors, screaming,and running up and down the hall all night. One does the obvious and call down to the Front desk but no one answered. There are smudges, streaks and smears
all owner the doors to the front lobby and elevators. Have these people ever Heard of windex?

What a fucking dump this city!! On the way home from dinner people in the
street were taunting and sophomoric. A guy in the street was so high out of his mind
that he laid down in the street and covered himself with his bike. I would not
Doubt it if he was dead!

I have to be here four days, FUCK!

I’m never coming back here!

Hi I wanted to speak my mind on philly sucks I like the web it’s nice and I’m glad I’m not alone. I love Philadelphia but over the years I have seen how we are losing value in each other every day. We are more concerned with materialism than each other. There’s no unity, love, our morals are gone. The education system is bad the higher education here cost alot for nothing. Our water is dirty got all kinds of chemicals that the mayor don’t even want to fight to keep our city cleaned. There is flouride in our water the other flouride which is sodium flouride that causes all kinds of diseases that health professionals here are making a living off of us being sick and having bad dental issues or other issues caused by this chemical called flouride. There is no independence here no more jobs are gone that’s why people are signing up for free handouts. We need a make over until then I see myself living in a clean environment.

Love your website! Please post this:

I was born in Philadelphia, but moved far away in my 20’s for almost a 10 years, and now that I’m back in Philadelphia, I can honestly say that I’m truly disappointed and disgusted in Philadelphia and one day I will leave again for good.

What people are saying on this website is all true. Philadelphia is going down the drain. Back in the 70’s, and further back, Philadelphia use to be made up of working class blue collar people who took pride in their communities, but today, many working blue collar jobs are gone, and people from the old generation/guard either moved, or died. So now, unfortunately, many areas have just fell to pieces and in many parts of the city (pretty much everywhere!) illegal drugs have moved in, particularly, heroin.

And aside from the drugs, the city is depressing as there are so many buildings and homes that are dilapidated and trash is everywhere. Add in all the crime, then there is no point in leaving your home. Hell, many students I have spoken to who went to Temple each and every one of them was robbed at some point during their college years.

As far as people, I don’t know why, but, Philadelphians are a very rude and nasty group of people who take kindness for a weakness. People from Philly seem to take pleasure in being rude to people for no reason and it stretches all the way out into the suburbs. People don’t smile or nothing, and people give you these blank cold stares. It’s part of the culture now, so Philly needs to be refereed to as the “city of hate” from now on because that’s all people do around here.

Also, I meet so many people from Philly that have no life and no personality. People here just lack charisma and are dead to me. Just walking zombies no matter how well they seem to be doing in life.. All people do in Philly is work, obsess about about sports, and obsess over their own personal boring family life. No matter how old people are around here most Philadelphians have no idea that life even exist outside of philly because they have never even visited the next state over, let alone visited other exotic counties full of rich and ancient culture like I have.

In the end, Philly is dying and everything is going to go from bad to WORSE if things don’t change anytime soon! Philly needs a massive injection of art, culture, hope, inspiration, a once over with a bulldozer in the crime ridden areas, and young people who will lay off the drugs and will work hard to rebuild their communities to get back to pre 1950’s success/status.
