Working in Enid
It's a good city to retire in, or a good place to be stationed if you are in the military. But for the average adult, it's a lot like Hotel California. You get sucked in and can't ever leave. The city officials won't let companies pay their employees more than minimum wage, so you can never make enough money to move away. There isn't much entertainment aside from bars and bowling, and they keep closing all the department stores, so you have to leave town for entertainment or for shopping. I have been trying to leave all my life, but Enid is a black hole.
I enjoy Enid for it's sense of community belonging evident throughout the town. Due to Vance Air Force Base, the community's bond is stronger than ever. People are willing to help others out because many of the residents of Enid are veterans or current service men. On the other hand, Enid could flourish more by investing in the more poor side of the community. There is an expansion of Enid, growing west and north while the east side of Enid is struggling. There is also racial tension between the Marshallese people of Enid and the other fellow residents. I wish to see more community interaction between the races so, overall, Enid's sense of community belonging continues to flourish like a tree planted by streams of water.
Enid is below average in every way. This town is run down from the cheap arcade at the dead mall with the worst food that people here eat. This town is a contrast of east(poor) with some historical neighborhoods and west/north rich folks. Which rich is relative to the low standards here. If you have ever known better you’ll struggle here. Oklahoma is all about diner food and McDonalds. Sonic is a delicacy. The elitist move North to not have to associate with petty crime. Nothing is up there but Chisholm, their home, and a Dollar General. They are still stuck driving down to Jumbos and we all know small towns love Walmart.
