    When I first moved here I said I was from Marysville. I told them it was north of Everett. I never even mentioned Seattle.. I never did like going to the City.

    When I was younger I didn't mind going there, but when I got older I stayed away from it.

    Seattle is not a "city"; it's just a large town. As such, it doesn't spawn its own culture of lunatic rude and pushy people. In fact, compared with my home town of Chicago, my only complaint about Seattle is how lackadaisical many of its residents seem to be. A city that consumes so much coffee should be on edge more. At minimum, they should drive above the speed limit in the left lane. THAT is something real to complain about Seattle!

    Doesn't do any good to wash yer onions. Yer still gonna cry when you start slicin' 'em! Try rinsing the knife blade between cuts instead. Works for me.

    Hey Jim, You and me both! I haven't been to Seattle in over ten years. And that was just driving by on eyesore 5 a few times on my way north, and returning. Last time I actually got off the freeway and went into the city was in the early 90's. Closest call since then was when I had to take a flight back to Seatac from Las Vegas airport in 06 or 07 after driving to southern Utah with a friend, arrived here after dark and another friend picked me up.

    I let my bothers drive with their Montana plates, or I mention that I lived in

    Havre and am on my way to visit my in-laws who have lived in Montana their whole lives.

    Actually, I have never had any problems,but I avoid Rock Creek like the plague.

    No, those are people from places like Chicago and Boston who just moved here or are visiting. The real Seattle drivers are the ones who drive their 1982 Subarus 50mph in the left lane on I-90, stall in the middle of the 520 bridge because they forgot to get gas, and don't use their turn signals because communicating in any form with strangers is to be avoided at all costs.

    I guess you've never been to Georgia or other parts of the south? What shitholes FILLED with shitty people!!! I've been in 49 of the 50 states (Delaware is the only one I've missed) and I can tell you while not perfect Washington is a great place, I miss it now that I live in Minnesota. You're definately correct that people are very geniuine in the Midwest!
