With all the talk about Southern friendliness and the Northeast blunt personalities, how are the people from the West percieved? We never hear anything about this and Im not talking about just California people cause there are many other Western states.

We're supposed to be "laid back," whatever that's supposed to mean.

Good question.

The only things I can think of (and I realize this is a stereotype) is independent, rugged, self reliant survivalists. People who know the outdoors like the back of the hand.

If all hell breaks lose it will be Westerners who come through it all right.

Wtf are you talking about? We're blunt? If anything Westerners are the most blunt people in the country.

In the Northeast, we're proudly obnoxious and arrogant.

Funny because you've never been to NY or CT. And you drove from CA to Ohio? CA to Connecticut? Yeah right.

If it's one thing daddy the lawyer has taught me, it's to detect lies like this. You've repetitively exposed your hatred of New York and everything around it... And you use Ohio as a little escape route to make it sound like you're not just picking at the NYC area.

You drove from CA to CT? And people engaged in conversations with you about California as you got out of your vehicle?

Haha what a jerkoff

Pal I don't know what you mean by that. You're saying we're dull that's exactly what you're saying. Blunt = dull. Dull = everybody in the west.

Calm down futcha. Blunt does not mean dull. IMO, blunt means direct or no BS.
