I don't even think the humidity here is bad. I would say the worst city that I personally lived in would be Memphis - humid night and day. Awful!

I hate the endless supply and demand cycle of Reggaeton and Rap (Not Hip-Hop....Rap)music in San Antonio. Seriously, people should want better for themselves...

I also hate seeing Julios put Third Coast Swangin, Texas Playas, and other declarations of Ghettocity in old english letters on their beat-up cars.

Starbucks uses coffee beans that are not free trade but sugar free vegan frendly Banana nut bread sounds tasty... and healthy
that brings me to another thing I hate which one of you can help me with. I really hate that San Antonio has very few health stores, does anyone know where I can find one?

Another thing I hate about San Antonio.. Weather.. Did we have a winter or a spring this year?

There are plenty of Sun Harvests and then there's Central Market and Whole Foods. After moving from the Seattle area last year, I felt the same and turned my nose up a bit at the Sun Harvest store close to us (on Callaghan...) But, I've come to really like it now - they have a darn good selection. So what if it's not brand-spankin' new and flashy. Kind of reminds me of the old-school health food stores of the 70's.......

Oh, also, the city has already started distributing recycle cans to residences in San Antonio. If you wait around, you will probably receive one. If you can't wait...you can go.
I hate that people in san antonio take it personally when someone offers a different opinion and that their first impulse is anger(repeat... sorry)

I am going to have to stand my ground on the spurs. I can not stand the fans.. They are all willing to high five you in the arena but also willing to run you over to get out of the parking lot first.... whats up with that?!?

I hate getting flamed by people who have "city pride" but will not lift a finger to make this town a better place. I find THAT VERY disrespectful to the TOWN.

OMG how funny ryne - I actually had a meeting at the Quarry Starbucks today where I ordered the sugar free banana nut bread. And yes, I had my macbook with me too. Got home, logged on, read this thread and burst out laughing. Can't wait to hear the scorn and sarcasm in your next post

I totally agree about the health stores of the 70's vibe!!! I love that! It's like stepping back in time. Actually, I'm not really old enough to venture that this statement is accurate, but I know enough about the seventies to make that assumption.


Love about this city-the local hole in the walls
Hate about this city-not walk-friendly
