Just came back from Los Angeles what the F happened to this place ?
People living in tents living under bridges even near Beverly Hills/Hollywood areas.
There are people living in tents on Sunset (East).
Blatant caste system is obvious. Toll roads is for the Lexus European high end American/Japanese car owner people. Non-Toll roads is rife with pick-up truck and Wal-Mart gang.
Parking is impossible
Every Dickhead who owns a restaurant offers shit service and expects you to cough up $80 with a $15 tip.
Gas is $7.50
Not one asshole has decency on the road. Proper third world India style driving. Nobody is courteous zero couthness and absolutely no manners at all. The only way to make a left on some intersections where there is no green arrow is to steal the road during the time frame of switch from the orange to red switch process.
- Even the Singapore Changi airport I flew to IN 2006 IS STILL BETTER THAN THE 2022 MAY KLAX airport.
- I never thought I'd see this in the USA, but a guy literally was waiting for me to throw my trash from my car in the gas station trash bin and then started looking for the trash I just threw once I left (peeped him from rear view mirror).
I had to actually let it sink in this was USA. Never thought I'd see that in America.
- Venice Beach is dirty smelly and full of druggies and there's homeless tent people even on the fricken beach.
I live in Texas where gas is $4 ish and we have no tent people and all the roads are clean and all we have is nothing but space. Typical restaurant bill is around $40 for party of 3 if you know a fair place.
Jesus christ no wonder people are moving in droves to Texas.
I stayed at an expensive hotel btw. I'm NOT A CHEAPSKATE. But yes I will complain about $8 gas even if I spent thousands at a hotel.
Man, Cali is such a rip-off. Like rats running in a hamster wheel.
This isn't a money thing. Even if I was rich I'd probably stay in Santa Barbara or San Diego but LA is just a pile of crap. Bel Air Beverly Hills is nice (duh) but that's just a social bubble and not the entire picture.
