Dallas is full of friendly people with a lot of love to give. But there must be balance, and we can't love everything under the sun. So in order to get out some of our negative energy, here's some stuff we hate, starting with, well, the sun.
Sweating through your favorite shirt isn't an anomaly in Texas, it's a birth right. While we love the heat during mild months like October and November, the summer's constant sizzle is the ideal topic to start this list.
From the bronzed skin to the bleached hair, Jerry Jones is Dallas' most love-to-hate man. You built a $1B stadium? Thanks. But please, get the Cowboys to the playoffs this year.
Bigger isn't always better, and Houston is the perfect example of this. We have better food and better football.
Simply put, Dallas traffic is the worst. (Except for Houston. Still glaring at you, Houston.)
Thanks to our booming economy, folks from across the nation are flocking to Texas' big cities. We welcome all to our state with open arms, except for those pesky Californians. Totally not chill, brah.
In Dallas, authentic, tasty Tex-Mex cuisine is just a stone's throw away. Maybe that's why we get so angry when we're served beans from a can and queso that can only resemble Velveeta.
You know why Texas doesn't fall into the Gulf of Mexico? Because Oklahoma sucks. Oklahomans suck because they drive too slow on D-FW freeways. And when it comes to sports, even fans of non-Longhorn college football teams in Texas can agree Oklahoma teams shouldn't be allowed to win games at the Cotton Bowl.
Chili with beans
You know what's great about chili? Meat. You know what's not great about chili? Everything else. Get those beans outta here!
The beards. The plaid shirts. The ironic glasses. Almost everything about Dallas' few, and thankfully far between, hipsters makes us want to roll our eyes ... forever.
We love the idea of public transit. We just love the idea of hating DART more. Things that could fix this? More rail lines, to start. And being on time, yeah, more of that.
Some Dallasites are willing to pay more than $15 for a shaken drink. This isn't Sex and the City; we like out drinks two ways -- cheap and potent.
BONUS: Tony Romo
You know what's bigger than Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's ears? The amount of hate reserved for him after another botched fourth quarter. He may not be our quarterback anymore, but the only thing Dallasites loved more than watching him succeed was watching him disappoint them over and over again.
