I Hate Seattle

It's True


So happy to have found this site. I realized it was time to get out of WA when I went into Seattle Saturday (I have lived in Bellevue for 3.5 years), and encountered a Seattle protest ("science" related?) march. Pike St was completely blocked from Cap Hill to downtown. It seemed impossible to cross over, in a car or on foot. I know I could have driven around east of Cal Anderson park, but I was so traumatized by the procession, I drove in circles trying hard not to speed toward Pike and kill some cucks and fat girls.

There is absolutely no scene here. No nightlife. Nothing. No real fine dining. Don't let anyone try to convince you otherwise. I am a recluse now who goes to work and comes home, until I get out of here.

I would never live in Seattle proper. It is nasty and weird. Every time I go out, 99% of women are not wearing makeup, are slightly overweight to obese, and have on some sort of mismatched jeans and brown boots ensemble with a cheap jacket or workout clothing. The tats, multicolored hair, and piercings are nauseating. My first "nightclub" experience here (Trinity) involved getting "accidentally" shoved by 2 pasty hamplanets in tight short dresses. To my horror, I have realized the colorful hamplanet look is en vogue.

The worst things about Seattle are the invincible cyclists. I have never witnessed more entitled libtard freaks in my entire existence. Imagine grown men twinkling their bicycle bells for you to get out of their way if you're walking on their precious path. One reason I am moving away is so I don't go to jail for murdering a few.

12th man honkeys. I do not watch or like football, yet I am forced to like the PooHawks and am an outcast if I don't cheer for them. No. Never.

The dating scene is a joke. I have put myself out there, and been on many dates. Guys are really hard to connect with here. Almost every guy in Seattle is poly, or wants to be it seems. I am not. The most screwed up guys are the ones who grew up here. And the most screwed up men ever are the ones who live on their boats (quite common).

Why do people go out in large groups? Is this a status thing? They all drive their Subarus to meet up for bad overpriced entitled food and Rainiers in a can. Afterward, they go to a lame house party in an apartment. Why?

Everyone has an attitude for no reason except they live in Seattle and know other common people you don't. Everyone flakes and ghosts in life, but here it seems to be the only power play/game anyone has. I've heard people constantly whine about needing to make more friends, or go out more. I HAD a good friend who never shut up about how she needed more friends. Then she tried to steal 2 friends of mine out of spite because I never invited her along. Hmm, wonder why.

Coming from L.A., I can tell you that the Mexican food here is the worst I've ever had. The meat is always tough, with consistently lukewarm side items that taste like they came out of a can. Yet, no one will admit this. Seattle people love their "Mexican food". They are always willing to tell you about a great Mexican restaurant "you should try".

Local businesses don't want your business. Clerks love to ignore you. They only speak to let you know their store is closing as you're shopping, or they will lock the doors if they see you approaching 5 minutes before they close. I have had this happen too many times.

I have blown my horn countless times. I don't let people in, and never will. I have been beeped at many times for not letting an entitled cuck cut in front of me, or come out of a parking garage. I have almost run over too many meandering jaywalkers. I beep at those too. They try to grab back but always fail.

If you are any race, even white, you will feel the obsession with racism from the liberals in Seattle. They are only interested in making themselves look good by embracing fake diversity.

I will close this on a positive note:

I genuinely love the rain, and as a person who can't tan, the darkness isn't so bad. I love the trees and views of nature in the parks and wherever, because it can be beautiful here.

I like Pike Place Market. It's a good spot to hang out and explore, if you don't get hit by a car. The crowd is mostly tourists, so you will get some smiles and normal human interaction.

The Asian food is good, but finding a good Thai place can be tricky. They do exist. I prefer Asian cuisine, so this suits me.

Some people do try here, and I appreciate the efforts. I have met some truly kind people.

I read a lot of fiction so I like all the indie bookstores here, and coffee/tea shops. Ouroboros Press makes some handsome books.

Shiteattle, Washington


I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who hated living in Seattle! I've been enjoying all the posts on this site.

I lived in Seattle for two and a half years and it was a miserable experience. I realize it gets a million times worse than Seattle, but the whole city left a bitter taste in my mouth.

I worked at a grocery store in the Belltown neighborhood for two years and had to deal with despicable treatment from my boss, coworkers, and customers. The people that shopped there would scream at me, cuss me out, threaten me, harass me, and be as obnoxious as possible. My coworkers would also scream at me, say insulting things behind my back/to my face, and make false accusations about me towards the boss. My manager treated his employees horribly and allowed me to be abused.

What the heck, Seattle?

Also, the political culture and discourse in the city really stinks. Unless you like being hysterically screamed at about your white privilege, and insulted for not voting for Bernie Sanders, you probably won't like Seattle politics.

Miserable Place


Wow I'm starting to really loathe this place. I moved here in May of 2015 and was welcomed by 3 months of glorious weather and sunshine (one of the best summers ever from what I hear). Coming from Florida, I'd never experienced a summer that was so pleasant. You could actually be outside in the sun and not feel like you were melting....Then my first Fall, Winter and Spring came...it was gray and wet, but not too terribly depressing, yet...Then summer last year came and it just wasn't the same as the year before. Lots of gloom, much cooler and probably only a few solid weeks of clear skies...this was the beginning of the end for me.....because the last 7months here have been absolutely terrible. I've never longed for sun so much in my life!! It's now the end of April and I think we've had maybe 2 decent days that feel like spring....there's no convincing me it'll get better either..Sure July will be great, probably august too...then back to the misery. HELL NO!!! I will not spend another 9 out of 12 months of my life miserable in this dark wet gloomy city. I'm NOT ok with the nice summers when it's shit the other 9 months of the year, nope!! Unlike those born and raised here, I know better. I'm moving back to Florida and I couldn't be happier.

I think the people here suck just as bad as the weather, too.
Just walk down the street, pick one, and you will notice the blank, aloof stares on the locals as they walk by you on the sidewalk carefully avoiding any chance of eye contact or social interaction (no one says hello). People lack serious communication skills here. Everyone is so afraid to speak up, be loud, or offend anyone that they just keep everything to themselves. You can't get a honest or direct answer out of anyone. No one will directly ask you or tell you anything. Instead, you have to learn to understand their passive bullshit..."It would be great if".... Social scenes here are whack and people in general just don't seem to have as much fun or be as happy as other places in the country and I'm well travelled having been to 46 of our states. Where are all of the smiley faces?

Oh yeah and then there's the cost of living and traffic. This place is just not for me, and not for lack of trying. I'm an outdoors type person, never had a hard time meeting people, and never had an issue with weather. I moved out here with a positive attitude and legitimately though I would have a different experience out here. Best of luck everyone...

I have had enough


I have lived here all my life, and I'm moving to the South. The snotty rain everyday since September to now, is just too much.
Some of us, do make eye contact and still attempt to be friendly. Sorry, to all of you, that have experienced the ":Seattle Freeze" We used to be a friendly place, but in the last 10 years, we have become just nasty. The weather has a lot to do with it.
As for people thinking we are soooooo special. No we aren't !!! The traffic is horrendous. Most of the people, in Seattle, are rude, and live in there own, self centered world. The taxes here are crushing. We have the most regressive tax structure in this state.
After 50 years here, my putting my house that over looks the water on the market and leaving to Tennessee.

People here love their own shit

They think looking like a loser is cool

they drink terrible beer and pay 4x the worth on bad cocktails
made by sad bearded men and women who miss old Seattle.

Teslas don't look cool sitting in traffic. Fucking over priced road block.

Everyone is frowning.

the pigeons don't even try to avoid death anymore. Obese off of our self righteous trash.

Thanks for the eyesores that penetrate the sky! I love staring at them while sitting in gridlock traffic that forms because no one thought the transportation infrastructure was important.

Toilet Town


Seattle is a big toilet everyone shits in. The people of Seattle are the turds that won't flush. Maybe it's because there so ugly and miserable the toilet doesn't even want them.

So float around in your eco friendly composting toilet Seattle. Make sure you don't talk to the other turds, just act awkward like your use to doing.

I'm moving soon. I can't wait to jump out of the toilet and stand on top of bowl and yell down to the turds FUCK YOU SEATTLE. So please flush yourselves down and do the rest of the world a favor. You will not be missed.

This sight is too funny. I just found this sight and had to post. I thought it was just me.

top 10 reasons I friggin hate Seattle

10. No personality. The people have no personality.

9. Seattle freeze. It's not everyone

8. Passive aggressive people. Passive and super aggressive is a better way to describe it. The good thing is that you will never get into a fist fight. Unless of course you a current olympic gold medal winning track star.

7. The coffee - It's not coffee that's big, it is Lattes.

6. Hiking - Why does everyone dress exactly the same in REI outfits.

5. people from California. Not all people from California are assholes, but it has to be over 50, 60, 70%.

4. un dog friendly. My dog isn't going to eat you. This place is so un dog friendly. Unless you want to bring your dog somewhere where you shouldn't. Like Walmart or Home Depot. I mean that is ok. But don't let that dog off the leash in a park or on a trail.

3. The food - the food sucks. That should be enough said, but what is up with the corn dog obsession?

2. The traffic

1. The people

This place sucks


Excuse the grammar (wrote this on my phone)

Moved here for reasons out of my control people warned me that this place was depressing(and depressed I became and damn near dependent on meds to stay sane) and had a high suicide rate but I heard and thought I could come to Seattle and be myself. When gas is almost double what I was paying I should have known but I've seen worst in California. I dont have any friends here (the only friend I have is a coworker and that is because we are from the same exact place)
The sales tax sucks ass. The food is bland all I eat is fish which is ok but the variety I have had else where is better. Things are over priced for no reason like I shouldnt go in Safeway(this prompt me to get a member card) and pay almost 80 for a bottle of alcohol that retails for 25 somewhere else. The drivers are trash the sign says the left lane is for passing but they just cruise in that lane especially during the morning hours when people are trying to commute to work(the 16). Then the passive aggressiveness of them getting offeneded when I go around them. Seriously there is room for your slow ass in the right lane. Another issue I have is people don't listen I asked what comes on a burger(a particular burger joint) and they thought I asked for 2 cheeseburgers. Where and when in the fuck in that question did I say the number 2. I have an accent and I have traveled everywhere and this is the only place they can not understand me. Another passive aggressive situation was when I was at the grocery store and I was checking out and the people behind me decided to move my groceries so they could put theirs on the belt and said I am not trying to be rude. Well I proceeded to move my own groceries to accommodate them and the woman was butt hurt. Her damn feelings wouldn't have been hurt if she had asked me if I could move my groceries. But where I'm from none of this wouldn't have happened. You would have waited until the cashier scanned the groceries off the belt. I am a female and the people here just look sloppy to me and there is no reason for me to actually dress up anymore because everyone else isn't doing it and there is literally no where for me to go. And if you don't stay near Seattle who wants to take a road trip just to go have fun (club or bar hop) The weather sucks I've been wearing a jacket since I moved here and I'm from the south where it gets unbearable hot and I miss it. I try to tell my fb friends that wanna move up here just because they like the grunge nightlife that it's different when you have to see the real side of Seattle. Don't move somewhere just because you wanna do an activity you do only on the weekend every day.

2 more things

Never have I ever had bad customer service up here. Went to a nail salon and had a pedicure done without them actually doing my nails. I exploded so bad that I got put out the nail salon.

Finally people are weird in an uncomfortable way.
Long story short I had this guy arrested because he was just being a creep.

This place had confined me to my house. I go to work and go out to get things if I need things and immediately return home. Rarely I'll go out for leisure. But to avoid the drivers, the passive aggressive people, spending unnecessary things, creeps, and just the unexpected unusual behavior of these people I stay inside.

Wow, Everyone Hates Seattle, And The Pacific Northwest For Now On


Nothing is ever going to matter in Seattle, and the Pacific Northwest for now on. What an evil, miserable, wretched dreary psychological acid place. The absolute worst anyone is able to encounter. Nowhere else on this entire Planet has those exact type of vibes that overly negative. Everything is ugly in that overly provincial town for now on, in the land of ugly dirt and ugly condos. Everywhere else is infinitely more optimistic, brighter, and more satisfying to live in, or visit. More euphoric vibes when people leave this cursed atrocity. Seattle, and the PCNW is just empty. Psychological isolation zone.

Seattle Freeze is real. Although, I made at least 70 friends over there. Not having nearly the amount of bad luck other people are saying about themselves over here on this very accurate Blog. Nevertheless, a really horrible town to socialize in. Pseudo-friendly(At first very approachable and then average seatellites betray you, and everyone), Flakey, Conniving, Unbelievably Fake, Cynical, Dark, Much More Dumb Overly Limiting Than You Think, Wrong Type of Overly Delusional Provincialism For An Overrated Semi-Suburban Town That Is Rather Sterile With The Fatal Type Of Set Up To Fool People. Pathetic town.

What Seattle used to be in the years 1990-2015 is now the total polar opposite since the years 2015/2016/2017 with a complete reverse. That town hates the intellectuals for now on, and those strange spirits endlessly despise the creative, art related individuals, especially the museum affiliates. Woah, what an evil monster town. And I don’t even like creativity for now on, never in any way being part of that identity. (You guess it, I don’t even like going to art museums anymore or ever again until they became rightfully cloudy again). Always fatally the worst weather patterns. The pcnw, seattle climate area is disgustingly haunted. Really, a cloudy everyday feel for decades or centuries, and then it’s sunny every fucking day from 2015 into 2016 situation? There was no other year in all of seattle recorded history as terribly hijacked compared to 2015. Trees budding out in January, first sunny June ever, when a few years ago May to June had near frosts? Is there anywhere else where the weather is that fake, messed up, and artificial? Totally ruined the energetic vibes of the pacific northwest, especially around seattle. Watch that town get a major earthquake right around Downtown Seattle. Tons of oppressive earthquake tension in the surroundings. The weather is just supposed to be appropriate, and with the right vibes around. What an Evil retard psychologically irritating town. Deep Down a Malicious Sewer=Pcnw, especially seattle. Wrong type of fatal quagmire Evil Diabolical town. And everyone feels it over there.

Everyone's Scapegoat


Can't tell you how many times, I have been deemed to be someone's scapegoat while living here. One day, for example, my landlord misplaced a cup. Apparently she and her now deceased husband used to drink coffee together, and the cup missing was his. I wake up, make some tea, and just chill. She frantically runs up to me, repeatedly pokes me on the shoulder, "oh my oh my blah blah where is the cup? Where? Where is it? I saw it two days ago. You must have used it. Please give it back. It is my husband's - my only memory of him."

First, what the hell are you talking about? I have no idea. "the cup" could mean anything. Chill, please. Then, straight out blaming me, as opposed to saying, "oh, have you seen a cup that looks like x." You know, what a sane person would do. Actually a sane person wouldn't have so much anxiety in the first place and, if it was THAT important to you wouldn't misplace the cup to begin with.

Anyhow, so this cup is your *only* memory of your husband?. Can we say melodrama? I've lost many of my personal assets in the past - it's just an effing cup from a chain retailer that's about $5 or something - not like it's a handmade piece of pottery that he made or you made for him. Get over your superficial attachment, it is stopping you from living life.

So, I do my morning routine. Come back to the kitchen. Open the microwave (which I never use but felt inclined to open) and guess what? Cups's in there, lady. Christ.

Part 2

Went on some dates with a man. He's in love with someone, very clearly, and using me as his side woman until this woman becomes single. Normally wouldn't have this, but hey, I'm desperate at the time for a little 'pseudo' connection. Whateves.

Several dates later, - he can't stop talking about this same woman. Got tired of hearing her name and everything about her ex marine status, and how they kissed on some retreat they went on got back together, and how she one day threw him out of her house when they *almost* moved in together. Blah blah blah. I'm sitting there, listening to it ALL.

We have a hot date one day, shower after a good time, and guess what - we are using this homemade body wash she gave him! Fucking Christ, dude! She's everywhere, and now on my effing skin. Sick.

I want to know what the hell is up for my OWN sanity, end up contacting her, confirm he's not married. That's good. Phew. (he was a bit evasive, thought it was fair).

She freaks out that he's been with someone else. Um, you aren't together. So now, I'm in the middle of these two ex lovers who want to be together, yet don't know how, and they are BOTH blaming me for their own errors.

Dude: "Why did you contact XXX. About xxx." Now she's never going to want to get back with me. " (um, dude, you aren't dating, why do you effing care. She, according to you, threw a bunch of stuff AT you and kicked you out of an apartment and was screaming at you. - not a good sign).

Her: Some psycho who thinks I broke into her car when I live 40 + miles away and don't even know her address or what her car looks like.

I get calls from the dude about her slandering his name on some social media site, which I don't use. Um, how is that my fault? I am not responsible for what another says. I have him calling me to see if I really broke into her car. "She thinks you broke into her car." (she can *think* whatever she wants, now can't she?). Complete delusion. Never met this woman.

He and I inevitably fade.

But - regarding the accusation of breaking and entering into someone's car - For reals? wasn't even in town - I was in the mountains, sillies.

Dear God - please help these people.
