Sick and Tired

United States

#1 Oct 16, 2009
I'm so sick and tired of the small town mentallity around here. Everyone knows everyone and everything about everyone and even MORE than you know about your own self. If you want to know something about yourself just go on topix and ask - I'm sure someone else will have the answer for you. Small town BS - All small towns are good for is backstabbing and gossipin. But I believe HINTON has to be the worst. I mean come on people - you get on here and talk about people that you sit next too, work with, you live next too, you socialize with and are supposed to be friends to and smile and pretend to be all nicey nice and all the while have a knife in there back. THEN, some of you get up on sundays and go to church and pretend to be such good people and then go out all the rest of the week and live and act like the devil and then have the audacity to cast judgment on those around you for being "astray". And "please pray for brother or sister so and so because they are backslidden and need the Lord." And the next day tell off colored jokes, dirty jokes, cuss, and who knows WHAT else. I would venture to say, that the people that need the "lord" in your eyes are closer to the Lord then you would ever realize. You are too self centered and boastful and proud to open your eyes. Maybe you need the lord. Have you ever looked in the mirror and looked at your own life and did a self exam? Maybe you should!
Do you think you are better than everyone else because you go to church? do you think you are better because you have money? Do you think you are better because your life is perfect and never has drama or problems? Maybe you dont think that or wouldnt realize you would think that but your actions speak a whole lot louder than words. Must be nice to be perfect! Its not what you do, how much money you have, how nice you look? Its whats in your heart. And this town is fulllll of BLACK HEARTS. A good community is there to support each other and lend a helping hand in times of need. This community - ha! This community will ask you if there is anything they can do just to find out what is going on - not because they want to help- because its full of nosey people. Can't wait to get out of this town and never look back! Is there such a place where people are actually kind hearted and sincere? Very doubtfull.

I agree with a lot of what you said.
The exception being that this small community being much different than others, it isn't. Trust me.
I also disagree with people not willing to help others here - try getting a flat tire and see how many pull over and offer some sort of assistance. It's awesome and not something you'll see much of in bigger communities.

I know it's a shame but like Miranda Lambert sings (everybody dies famous in a small town) but it dosen't make it right, people should use this for helping one another, and better the City of Hinton instead of running it down, Hinton really is a good city , just needs a little help

SNOWFLAKE (Aka Snowfake) ARIZONA is a small MORMON
TOWN located in Northern Arizona about150 miles north of
PHOENIX. Population 5500 & 5400 ASL. The MORMONS
have a "strangle" hold on this town. They do NOT like to
help NON-MORMONS! This town becomes an almost
totally DEAD town on Sundays, because they spend hours
at the respective "wards". A lot of people like small town
living,BUT, if you are NOT a MORMON, do yourself a very
big favor & DO NOT MOVE HERE! Trust me,you do NOT
want to die in this joke of a town!

You have just described small towns everywhere on this planet. That's the way people are. I left Hinton decades ago for a large city only to find that my utopian large city actually was only a bunch of small towns serviced by one municipality.
The only good thing about it was that I did not have to drive 27 miles over Beechrun and White Oak to find something to do.

All one has to do is read Sinclair Lewis' "Main Street" to understand small towns. Sad, but growing up outside of Hinton we had no public library an so we couldn't read wonderful critiques of small town (read small minds) life like found in Lewis' and others work.
