I thought it would be a fun thread to post the stereotypes or funny things about your city or state. It could be things you made up, or things that have been said before.

I will start.

You know you are from Washington(the state) when...

-You remember where you were when Mt. St Helens erupted(assuming you were alive)

-You know how to pronounce Sequim, Puyallup, Enumclaw and Issaquah.

-You see a person carrying an umbrella and know they must be a tourist.

-You can tell the difference between Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean and Thai food.

-You have an earthquake story, and so does everyone else you know.

-You only visit the Space Needle if you need someplace to take out of town guests.

-You always have to specify “the state of Washington” instead of just saying Washington because of DC.

This was more so western Washington. Post yours!
