    Having lived in Birmingham for two and a half years plus being here for university, I can whole-heartedly agree that in my general experience, the people are frickin terrible here. They're rude, they're unfriendly, they're unwelcoming and they simply look miserable all the time. London is far more accommodating and inviting and I'm definitely not staying here once I'm done with university.

    I completely agree. Even if I have the tiniest makeup mistake that really isn't a big deal at all, almost every person I walk past by will just give me this rude STARE for ages. And not just one or two quick glances, a PROPER long rude stare. It's so pathetic. I have never come across people like this before in my life.

    It's really bizarre. It's not like I come from an area where everyone starts conversations with their neighbours or strangers. But at least when you do have some reason to be speaking to them, they're calm and polite and friendly.

    There's none of that here. Even the people who work at tills look like they hate you. People avoid conversation. It's not that they're quiet, they're rude because they act as though you simply being alive makes them miserable.

    I'm first year at this uni and so many people in this uni are really really vile and cruel people. Just very nasty and always giving you dirty looks. Don't know how to mind their own business and make your life hell over petty simple mishaps that are really not important at all such as makeup mistakes. I have never come across so many nasty people in my life. Giving me mean looks over things that shouldn't even concern them. I've had a horrible time here because the students here are some of the nastiest people I have ever met in my entire life.
    I'm 2nd year at Birmingham, what course are you doing?
