The people are not really very friendly either. They have almost a California mindset and not like what you would see in the Midwest or the South. Phoenicians, as its residents are called, generally have the worst personalities. They seem materialistic, introverted, egocentric, not very social, quiet and downright haughty or stuck up. Try going to Scottsdale. Most of the women there are stuck-up bitches where money, sex, materialism and sometimes partying are the only things that count in this life. The men are just as shallow and judge themselves by the size of their penis, the car they drive, the size of their house, how much money they make or how good looking their trophy wife is. Most Phoenicians are not just rotten people in their personal lives, but also AWFUL drivers on the road. If you don't believe me then drive in Phoenix or on I-17 or anywhere in the state. People don’t use their turn signal, they speed, drive wrecklessly, run red lights, tailgate, cut you off, flick you off, and Phoenix has numerous accidents everyday. Phoenix ranked as the worst city for auto accidents and was the number one city in all those things. Also, if your car breaks down or stalls on any road, drivers will scream at you or flick you off for causing a two-second inconvenience for them. They are not likely to stop and help you.
And don't even get me started about the weather. Despite conventional wisdom of this Sonoran Desert urban hell, Phoenix does NOT have a tollerable climate in general. It is over 100 degress for 8 months, but the remaining months between NOV and end of FEB are good. Do you consider 115-degrees tollerable, let alone for eight months at a time? I didn't think so.
Phoenix has an awfull drug problem, mostly from Meth being smuggled in from Mexico and the illegal immigrants that Phoenix tollerates. The city is a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants and it shows: violence, drugs everywhere, raids for illegal immigrants in a normally quite, suburban neighborhood and awfull traffic, because most of its Mexicans can't drive worth a dam, including the people who actually live there and belong there.
