"complain complain complain"

      Shanghai is a pain because they are a bubble within a bubble. people who live their have a special Shanghai 'citizenship' on top of their Chinese citizenship.

      I'm sure just a work visa isn't as complicated but I know it's still difficult

      I'd work there too though, it's really nice, air is better than beijing

      I’ve had instances in which I’ve cited people giggling at me and occasionally, finger pointing at me. I’ve also cited secretly taking photos or videos. I go into a restaurant, in some rare occasions I just don’t get served for 30 minutes in a moderately busy restaurant. I ask for help and people ignore and walk pass me like I’m a homeless person asking for money. There’s a whole lot of sheeat. May be it’s my Chinese dunno. 🤷🏻‍♂️

      Wow, this is the best answer I could have hopped for. I am truly impressed how few words it took you to demonstrate Austin's toxicity.

    I think what bothers the locals the most is change. Austin used to be more hippie, laid back cool. Tech brought a more cosmopolitan lifestyle and some people miss the old Austin.

      this seems reasonable. I'd imagine a lot of locals feel left out too because they have all these cool events and a lot of investment pouring in ... but none of it is for them

    Don't flee from one place you've already ruined with bad policies and try to implement those same policies again expecting the locals to roll over and take it.

    This is the first I'm hearing of toxicity in Austin.

    • Means tech is reaching a critical point in the area, the culture is being projected. Austin is on its way to become a lot less fun unless non-tech job counts can keep up with tech's growth
