Personally I hate it here too...but y'all knew that!

If you don't like it, leave? What a horrible, childish thing to say! Unfortunately leaving is not always immediately possible. Believe me. Life happens.

Perhaps a more constructive approach would be to ask the poster what she misses most about Minn. and see if you can suggest anything she can do here that might alleviate her homesickness a bit. You know be FRIENDLY and WELCOMING instead of a bunch of defensive *******s.

Noe, I feel your pain having also moved here from somewhere much more culturally diverse. My quest (to alleviate my homesickness and boredom) has been to find restaurants that don't suck. I'm happy to report that today I actually tracked down good Korean food in Omaha! Yeah! Its the little things that count. (For all the curious out there its at 96th and L streets).

Actually the one classical station here bites. Don't get me started on NPR...

You do realize insulting one's hometown is basically a direct insult on their judgment and taste, right?

They suck? That's your opinion. Why can't you put a lid on your hostility and describe things as "not to your liking" rather than being insulting?

I have lived out of state for various periods of time. Yes, I've been to places not up to par with Omaha and I've been to places much more vibrant, as well.

You always preach about people keeping an open mind, maybe you should practice those words.

I'm sorry, I can't find a group of Somalis they can celebrate Muharram with.

Geez dude, maybe its a failure to communicate, but where I'm from saying "things that don't suck" is just a way to say "things I like." So are you insulted by Korean food or what? Personally, I was pretty jazzed to find this place.

I think you missed the whole point of my post...and no I do not agree that my not enjoying living in Omaha has anything whatsoever to do with your judgment and taste. I DO however think that the way you treat other people has everything to do with your character.

Seriously, go back to Minn if you hate it hear so much. the notion that Omahan's don't travel is laughable and you sound like an idiot saying that.

If there were 2 million more poeple here then maybe Omaha could offer you some of the amenities you lack.

If you dont like it please leave, you sound like such a whiney baby. Your a parent, you should try to set a better example.

WOW!!!! I'm speechless... this is the kind of reaction that most people in Omaha have.... you are the kind of people that make Omaha suck.

I believe in knowing and accepting what you have and what you don't. I know Omaha is a small city. I knew that it doesn't have the lakes that MN has (I missed them a lot). I knew that there are no profesional sports. I knew all that before moving here. What I did not know was the kind of people you can find here. How hostile they can be. But I'll have to accept it (more like ignore it).

You know what your city has and doesn't have. Accept it.... laugh about the bad stuff... don't hate someone that says outloud what everyone knows.

Yeah, ok, Stacy.

Hey, if the whole "stay at home wife" thing doesn't work out for ya, maybe you could become a psychologist since you seem to be able to judge a person's character off a few posts?

Ok, that was uncalled for, be really, you don't know me. I'm actually a decent person despite what you would like to believe.

And thanks Stacy from Cali. It's nice to have someone respect my opinion. And yes, we are trying to find places where we can have fun or where we can spend the day.

We are having trouble calling Omaha "home", but we are trying. Defenitely, people like burgerflipper don't make it easy.

She was respecting your insults, obviously.

Stay at home wife? Yeesh...I may be pregnant but I'm not barefoot or in the kitchen yet. And I have a job so that pretty much kills that prospect

I'm not saying you're not a decent person, but I hate it when people are mean over what really amount to misunderstandings.

Stacy, you have to quit taking the bait, lol. Clearly the last post was a joke as I could not possibly know what you do or dont do.

Anyway, I don't know how calling everyone in Omaha 'red necks' and suggesting how the lack of diversity somehow reflects the character of the people of Omaha would be a misunderstanding.

Simply, if you girls are not enjoying your stay here in Omaha just ask for suggestions. The multiple, multiple threads here we have done just that and would be glad to help.

I was not calling everyone in Omaha a redneck. It's just that I've met some people that make living in Omaha not agreable.
