I'd say so, most people who aren't tech millionaires, owners who bought decades ago, or foreign investors (so 90% of the population) whine about the traffic and cost of living.

It is one thing to have a complaint, yet I don't see millions whining and crying like you.

What did Einstein say about doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome?

I've always associated the cigar-and-Cadillac lifestyle with something called "finger lifting." Have you any strength in that area?

If it weren't for the "high cost of living," you'd be paid much less.

They whine about the weather and the local sports teams as well. It's all elevator talk. Just as in every other metro area in the country.

How is that different from this? Also whenever I hear someone from a different area whine about their cost of living I can't help but laugh at them.
