Don't wate your time visiting Perham!

I have no idea why, but people from Perham have the WORST ATTITUDES EVER! They strut around pompously as though they are superior to all others. I work in this town and have to say I am completely sick of the way they enter our place of business and try to order us around telling us how to do our jobs. As if they know how to do it. GET REAL! For example, they pull a $100 dollar bill out of their wallet or purse with a flourish and haughtily say, "Do you have change for this"? I'm thinking 'Well duh'! Like we should be all impressed with that. A hundred dollar bill. Big deal! NOT! They are extremely impatient, rude, and boorish individuals. They lack all form of good manners and intelligence. They are BULLIES! Their children are bullies. The apple certainly does not fall from the tree in Perham. Their motto is "Perham Pride". So true. They are proud, egotistical snobs whose new motto should be "IT'S ALL ABOUT ME". Me first. PERHAM IS AN UTTER WASTE OF TIME. If you want to visit this part of Minnesota my advice would be to VISIT DETROIT LAKES!!!!! Now that is a worthwhile place!
