To the OP -- if you live in any of the areas mentioned aside from Palo Alto, and then you go to Palo Alto to hang out, the women you meet might say something like "Oh -- you mean you live down in the 408 area code?"

People who live in Shallow Alto and farther up the peninsula tend to look down their noses at people who live south of Palo Alto. Yes, it is just a generalization, but beware.

Think that's bad?
When they instinctively ask, tell them you did NOT go to Stanford U. Conversation over (after the eyeroll, nose up, and U-turn).
