Dreary Erie, Mistake on the Lake. If you say you love Erie, then you are a fake. LOL! The city of Erie, which is located in the state of Pennsylvania, is the most depressing, bass ackwards city that I know. Don't trust the tourist brochures, you can make anything look good by using glossy paper.
Jobs: There are none unless you count telemarketing, cleaning toilets at one of Nick Scott's "Enterprises", selling crack, robbing banks, or flipping burgers.
Culture: LOL! Unless you count getting rock bands and rappers that were popular 15-20 years ago to perform at the Civic Center, culture, there is none. Erie is a hick town striving to be a hick city.
Buying a House: FORCLOSURE!
Renting an Apartment: Unaffordable with the $7.15-$8/hr that they pay around here.
Weather: Winter and August.
Typical Erie Residents: Lower class Erieites tend to be overweight, out of style & miserable, but they live in the real world.
"Upper class" Erieites tend to have a fake perkiness and a fake "shine" about them. They resemble pod people.
Erie Mentality: "The government just granted us $50 Million. Let's waste it on a pie in the sky project that will never pan out!"
Erie's Golden Rule: NEVER SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT ERIE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A FAKE POSITIVE ATTITUDE ABOUT ERIE 24/7/365 YOU WILL BE DENOUNCED A TRAITOR.
