People In This Group Mock ‘Suburban Hell’ And Here Are 20 Accurate Posts

Published 10 months ago

Some people prefer to live in the suburbs, opting for larger spaces, cheaper housing and a quieter environment. However, the reality may be more along the lines of expensive fuel costs, because the nearest store is a 30-minute drive, or toxic neighbours because they pollute the air with the sounds of kids, dogs, lawnmowers, and a myriad of other ridiculous problems that come from living in any kind of close-knit society. 

But let’s allow the memes to do the talking about “Suburban Hell”. This subreddit is dedicated to advocating for more sustainable living in the suburbs. If you’re from the “burbs” you may relate to these posts, or if you’re thinking of moving, here’s to calling out for a change that seems much required.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
