Poplar Bluff is a horrible place to live. People are rude and greedy. There is not much here so people gossip and do whatever they can to find entertainment. Women are so scare another women is going to take her husband. Have major insecurity issues because they never get outside of this town. Anything more attractive than them they freak out. Since there are not jobs and money is tight people try to suck every dollar he or she can out of you. Rent is very high because real estate agents own most of the property and are greedy. The biggest jobs here are Briggs and Stratton and Gates. Entertainment for kids is bowling alley when available, skating rank that is nasty, and a water park in the summer with sky high prices. I can go to St. Louis to Six Flags cheaper than the water park. Churches are good but not the best. In this town churches are probably the best thing here. Most people are in bed clothes by 8pm and gone to bed at 9 or 10. Cops really do not seem to do much. I have live here for 10 years and its not getting better. There seems to be more food places in business. Some new food businesses going up. I guess people eat here a lot. If you happen to find a good job here do not talk about increasing your potential. People will get scare that you will improve better than them and try to get you fired. I plan on moving away quickly cuz this place has a nickname called Crazy Town.
