See for yourself:
Right On! I live in North Central Phoenix (Moon Valley), but have to work in phony – did I mean toney? – no, I don’t think I did – Scottsdale. We have a great neighborhood with great families, friendly people – BIG lots. Then came the boom – I now have one jack ass neighbor – guess where they moved from (they made sure to tell everyone about 12 times) "We’re really from North Scottsdale, we just bought this for an investment, we hope not to have to live here too long." She’s a realtor (AKA- broke poser). Now I listen to these loser phonies with their parties with their Scottsdale, foul mouthed, broke loser, white trash poser friends every two days till 3am, but the best part: Listening to these two schmucks fight on the patio every morning about how she maxed out the credit card again and he needed that money to make the house payment this month and now he has no money for gas. Looks like we’ll have a repo in my neighborhood now….guess she gets her wish – she won’t have to live here for long Now she and her spiked hair, frosted tip, middle aged,half finocch husband can move into one of those "Luxury Condo" rentals in North Scottsdale that used to be apartments and we can sleep at night. There is justice….
FRANK’S COMMENTS: Haha!! I love it! Incidentally, if you look up the numbers, Moon Valley has far more wealth than Scottsdale, so no wonder why those Scottsdale phonies can’t afford to keep the house there! And yes, what is up with the midlife crisis loser Scottsdale men, trying to dress like club kids in their 40s? LOL!!!!
Ahh, what a big surprise. While the Scottsdale police are ordered to hand out traffic tickets all day, innocent people are having their homes burglarized and their cars stolen.
Property crimes jumped 8 percent in Scottsdale in 2006, from common thefts and burglaries to vandalism, according to police reports released this month.
Reported today by the AZ Republic.
Some arrogant loser jerk who lives near McDowell Mtn Ranch emailed me today, saying he searched high and low under my name and found out that I had a tax lien years ago.
Well, duh. If the guy knew how to read (apparently he doesn’t) he would’ve learned from my books that I openly talk about my past failures and difficulties and how they inspired me on to success. In fact, every successful person met fierce resistance before making it. Even people like Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki went bankrupt before hitting it big. The problem with guys like this – and the reason why they haven’t encountered similar challenges – is that they have no motivation to go beyond the status quo, and that’s why they’ll never amount to anything. Scottsdale people simply go out and get average jobs, then use credit and debt to create the illusion of wealth. They never actually go out there and risk it all to make it big. I did, I failed the first few times, and I’m especially proud that I recovered from those failures to make it to where I am today. That’s why I was able to finally "graduate" from Scottsdale and move someplace much better. (It’s also worthy of mention that I lived in Scottsdale during my financial troubles, because it’s cheap and appropriate for someone in that situation.)
Pathetic insecure losers like this guy have no clue that I actually brag about my past failures in my live presentations, because all successful people have them, and we all bounced back from them.
I find it amusing that Scottsdale people are so damn insecure that they will dig up ancient history and actually try to use it to denigrate someone who has achieved success. You see, Scottsdale people love other phonies and feel secure around them, but as many commenters on this blog have correctly pointed out, Scottsdale people despise and shun the truly successful. What’s really sad is this guy is so insecure about his beloved fake-ass town that he wasted hours looking up information on me.
To top it all, he had the nerve to accuse me of not being a NY Times bestselling author (apparently he’s too dumb to know how to look up the list at NYTimes.com), and actually wrote "I am more successful than you." Well, only a Scottsdale person would say that, and we all know that if it were true, he would not be living in loser phony Scottsdale, and that he would never say such a thing unless he were a loser with the repo man at his front door.
Oh, and it gets even better. I looked up the guy’s name and found out that he’s a slum lord. What a classy guy.
This one makes a really great point about how shallow, empty, and untrustworthy the typical Scottsdale person is:
There’s something weird in this town that makes people feel empty, and they’ll do anything to try to fulfill this need. I’ve been back here for 9 months and I’m depressed, lonely and don’t know who to trust here. I’ve come to realize it’s better to not have any friends in scottsdale than one or two. I can always call my friend in LA for a shoulder to cry on, intelligent conversation and the love and trust I need.
Wow, something really strange has happened in our lives since moving almost 3 weeks ago.
While living in Scottsdale, we were constantly going out to eat, going out for drinks, and shopping. After all, that’s what people do in Scottsdale.
After nearly 3 weeks on the coast, we finally went to a mall last night (South Coast Plaza) and realized we hadn’t gone shopping at all since the move. On Saturday night, we forced ourselves to go out to dinner, just because we hadn’t in so long.
It made us realize what a waste of time living in Scottsdale was. There was absolutely nothing to do there but eat, drink, and shop. That’s how just about everyone there spends their time. What a waste. Here we’ve been spending our time on our morning walks on the beach every day, being outside, hanging out at the neighbors’ houses and vice-versa, and just enjoying life … living!
Of course, the irony here is that the Scottsdale lovers will defend the town by saying “we have wonderful restaurants and shopping.” Ooooh … big deal … what major city DOESN’T have that? Oh, and I hate to tell you, but your shopping sucks. Being in South Coast Plaza last night was a real eye opener.
If you’re a real person (not one of the plastic phonies) and you’re wasting your life away living in Scottsdale, you owe it to yourself to start checking out other places. There’s a whole (real) world out there that you’re missing and life is too short to spend in that twilight zone of a town.
Notice how most Scottsdale phonies have a sad story for losing their homes and getting deep into debt, while the main reason is out-of-control consumerism. I’m so sick of hearing about Scottsdale people about to foreclose because they "didn’t read the fine print" and now they want to blame and sue the lenders. Are you kidding me?? They were happy when prices were rising, and now they’re falling – sorry but it’s time to pay the piper his money. These jerkoffs who are losing their homes to foreclosure all have a boat in the yard, a BMW in the driveway, and can’t afford a mortgage reset increasing payments by just a few hundred dollars per month?! Sorry but they deserve to be living in a trailer – I hate to sound mean but they live a life they can’t afford. When the tide goes out we’ll see who’s not wearing underwear!
Ironically, I haven’t even seen the clip from Channel 3 because I was doing a book signing that evening, even more ironically, in Scottsdale. Well, it isn’t that ironic, that’s why I was in town in the first place.
If anyone has that clip, please let me know.
And thanks to those who came out to the event – here are some pictures. I thought I’d post these because everyone in Scottsdale who reads this blog has been emailing, accusing me of being a fake and not actually being a bestselling author. You see, since everyone in Scottsdale is fake, they assume everyone who claims to be successful must also be fake. When someone who is legitimately successful comes along, they shun and hate that person, because a true success is a threat to the Scottsdale phonies. More on that to come….
Here’s an email that came in from a 15-year old high school student in North Scottsdale. It shows why I’d never raise kids there because they’re brought up to look down on all non-Scottsdale residents and be spoiled little brats. In fact a friend of mine has a son in his early 20s and is appalled at the attitudes that his friends and girlfriends have. Old-timer Scottsdale natives may be very nice people but the new generation is the worst of the worst:
anything west of I-17 is ghetto. Anyone I know will agree with me. We aren’t fake, we just have money and show it off. I’m 15 and I know the difference. My dads a cosmetic surgeon, and my moms a lawyer. My house is valued at over 4.3 millon dollars. I’m not trying to brag but I know my parents can afford a house in Chandler, Glendale, Paradise Valley, or even Tempe but no thanks, I like my zip code 85262. Oh and for the drug problem, well thats everywhere that people have money
What I find especially amusing is the comment about anything west of I-17 being ghetto, when it’s documented in official demographics that Arrowhead Lakes in Glendale is the #1 wealthiest community in all of Arizona. It makes Scottsdale look poor. Oh, and illicit drug use is the norm for rich kids? This just goes to show what a bad job Scottsdale schools and parents are doing.
The stories I’m getting from readers about Scottsdale are just damn hilarious (repo men and bill collectors pounding on doors in places like DC Ranch and the like) so I’m going to start posting a “Reader Comment of the Day” … and with that in mind, send me your stories and comments about the Scottsdale phonies! I’d love to hear about your experiences with those public spectacles known as Scottsdale residents.
