15 Undeniable Things Every Coloradoan Loves To Whine About
If you are from Colorado, you get it: There are just some things that completely jag you and you can’t explain why (like the word “jag” — who coined that term anyway?). Take — for instance — these 15 undeniable things that everyone from Colorado loves to whine about:
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
This one really needs no explanation...
"WELL THERE GOES OUR CHANCE OF GETTING INTO THE PLAYOFFS!"
"Von... VON! VOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNN..."
3. ...and grouchy, know-it-all transplants in general.
...but mostly grouchy, know-it-all Californians who complain because Colorado isn't like California.
4. Frilly drinks
How to spot a Californian: They have an umbrella and whipped cream in their drink. *eye roll*
This is Colorado... drink a beer!
5. Weed tourists
Yes, marijuana is legal here. No, that does not mean you need to come to Colorado to get high and act stupid.
6. Tourists in general
Kidding, you guys are cool... as long as it's temporary and you don't move here.
Sure, cats are cool... if you enjoy being up all hours of the night wondering if this is the night they are finally going to kill you.
8. Casa Bonita
We complain non-stop about their line and inedible food, yet we keep going back... why is that?
Traffic is a real problem in Colorado... and it's because of all those dang tourists and transplants!
10. ...when people actually stop at a red light...
Just because the light turned red doesn't mean you are supposed to stop... it means the next 3 cars still have time to gun it.
11. ...and how I seem to be the only one who knows how to drive in this flipping state!
Seriously; why is it that I (Annie) am the only one who understands the rules of the road? Crazy, right??
We actually have a right to complain about this... whether it's public or private property, don't be a jerk.
13. Pot holes
Is it just me or do our cities seem to have a bunch of pot holes just waiting to swallow our Subarus whole?
14. Bad green chile
...because the only difference between good green chile and bad is some gross seasoning.
15. Environment destroying vehicles
C'mon dude; you're not impressing anyone with that gigantic, gas guzzling beast... especially when you're only driving a block or two to the grocery store.
