There’s nothing worse than calling 911 and being put on hold or disconnected, except, of course, being told help is on the way and then it never showing up.

I’m surprised the Cost of Owning a Home has come this far in the 64 Worst polling, considering that a) home prices dropped an outstanding 9.6% between February and March of this year, b) home prices dropped a stunning 25.6% between March 2007 and March 2008, and c) the reason the numbers remain so impossibly high is due to the arrogance of the public who kept buying inflated prices based on ill conceived notions that there could possibly be no real estate bubble. Seriously, people, did you learn nothing from the dot com bust? Or are you too busy still buying stake in Google to be paying attention? [data: California Association of Realtors]
