Its ironic, because DC has nothing to be stuck up about. The DC area is actually very provinical compared to Richmond. Most people there hail from the midwest or little towns further north. Talking about how much money you make is the tackiest thing ever. Richmonders never do such things.

Yeah, I don't know why that is. Most people in DC are in fact transplants from elsehwere. Maybe they get too carried away with their high salaries? Anyone care to pitch in a reason why people in DC are stuck up? Or is it all a perception thing?

Also, Lincoln is close. I love going to downtown they have a decent nightlife in volume of people for a small population and hearing alot these women with 3+ babies trying to find men. They are so upfront around here about all these babies they have and think just because they percieve themselves as good-looking they can find a man.
Well, apparently they can find a man if they have 3+ babies to show for it!

Inflated egos; making enough to feel above and "better" than blue collar and their hometowns, yet still a looong way off from being as succesful, fufilled - and secure- as the Bentley and Rolls set and the people whose butts they're kissing. So they must "compensate". AND be competitive. Not unique to Washngton, it's just that so many are clustered there. Visit the Hamptons someday for some more amusement -what UnknownStuntman said about WestChester (I think it was).

I visited Lincoln once, and I must say... they are very high on themselves.

Yeah, I could imagine a place four times the size with no real mass transit. Keeping with the topic, New York has an industry for pimping itself out that has no equal. Rather than the filmed entertainment industry of Los Angeles, New York has a filmed 'advertisement' industry. Big difference. Start spreading the.... ewwws! Don't believe me? There is currently a multibillionaire mouse on tour spreading it. Can't go anywhere without his very own podium! Tells you how he can run this country because, well, he's the mayor of New York. Not many have even heard of him. Doesn't matter, he's sticking to the wall. I'd be throwing up chunks, if I wasn't laughing so much.

I agree! The inhabitants of DC and suburbs think they are hot sh**. Meeting one, the first thing you are asked is where do work? The next where do you live? From that you are grilled more to see if you can possibly be sold something or are you a valuable as a CONTACT.

With this one-up-man/woman-ship game, people lie and exaggerate. Everyone is making a ton of money, is in a sensitive government position, works with "Condy" all the time forgetting to mention that they work in the third basement in the mail room and once so their buddy going out the door to her limo surrounded by 10 security cops who also play this game despite having been recently recruited from Podunk' finest police force.

The women in Lincoln, Nebraska with three kids, looking for a man must have moved to Washington. widower, I was turned down for online dates by all these women. Somehow they think they are much too beautiful to consider a man who is "old as their father," "not having same interests or life experiences," etc, etc, despite their now status as single mothers, divorced, and getting fat and old just like everyone around .

I hate to knock my own state but Minnesota has alot of snobby people. Especially Minneapolis! Not everyone. A good 80% of the state are stuck-up! For what reason I will never know! Then again there are people like that everywhere. It just seems alot of them are here!
