Sure Seattle’s got some problems… about 99 of ‘em in fact. But we’re also really, really good at some things. In fact we’re better at these 19 things than anywhere else:
Do we put it in tacos? In eggs Benedict? In pretty much any food we can think of? Yes. Is a salmon roll w/ cream cheese called a Seattle roll? Yes. Are we so good at salmon we don’t even eat it anymore, we just toss it around at Pike Place Market to entertain tourists? You know the answer by now...
We are so good at being friendly that people who just moved here think we want to be their friends. Hahahaha… can you believe that?!
3. Convincing ourselves that the weather doesn't suck...
At least people in say, Chicago, will admit their weather sucks. Not in Seattle, where we blissfully ignore the fact that we get more days of rain than almost anywhere while pointing out that places like, well, Chicago, New York, etc., actually get more rain.
4. … except in the Summer
When the weather is literally better than anywhere else. Now if only anyone here had air conditioning.
We have Microsoft, Amazon, a ton of gaming companies, plus a slew of other tech firms/start-ups, and, unlike San Francisco, we manage to not be completely overrun by D-bags. Unless you’re just talking about South Lake Union, obviously.
