Growing up in the Granite State is great, but there are some things that you grow to hate if you’ve grown up in New Hampshire. From minor annoyances to major inconveniences, here are 11 things you’ve grown to hate if you’re from New Hampshire.
1. The gun debate.
New Hampshire is full of people who have guns, and people who hate guns, but we all seem to get along. Can’t the nation just follow our example?
2. Getting an alignment.
You curse the state’s pothole problem every time you have to shell out money to your mechanic.
3. Mud season.
It’s so nice when the days warm up, but it stinks when you can’t go anywhere without looking like this.
4. Running out of milk.
Those stores are just so far away when you need something quickly.
5. Paying taxes.
The price of something should be the price you see on the sticker. Don’t try to trick me by adding 7% at the register.
Just get out of my favorite fishing spot, please.
7. Crowded spaces.
A trip to the city every now and then is great, but you’ll leave craving the open space of New Hampshire.
8. Massachusetts drivers.
Why are they so zippy? Always rushing!
9. The Yankees.
Sure, it’s Boston that has the rivalry, but as die hard Red Sox fans, we can passionately cheer “Yankees suck.”
Any traffic jam is a significant traffic jam – and a significant annoyance - if you’re from New Hampshire. We love our wide open roads.
11. State liquor stores.
We love to hate these stores. The prices are oh so right, but when you need your liquor quickly you hate having to hunt one down.
