I Hate Seattle

My 1 year anniversary moving away from Shiteattle

Default-member

It's been one year since I moved away and I have ZERO regrets. Best move ever. I went to Plano,Texas. Why you ask? Well Texas also has no state income tax. Think of Bellevue Square, full of tech companies and shopping districts like what you would find in Lincoln Square and University Village but better! http://shopsatlegacy.com , so it's not just about Applebees and cheese sticks you fuckin goon.

Texas has it's own faults but not as flawed as King/Snoh County. I am a much much more positive person these days. I have access to roads, native foods, and all the same bullshit that Seattle brags about and MUCH more. I still hit the trader Joes nearby without having to take a half day off to reach it in the muck.

My utilities are half the cost compared to WM. Trash/water/sewer bills that would give me unpredictable shock every month are now acceptable. My utilities are 68.00 for two months of recycling and trash PLUS water/sewer included!!! (they aren't nitpicky about recylcing here, containers are not priced by the size and BOTH are picked up weekly). I have modern amenities like central heat and air and roads that are fast, efficient, and well maintained. Texas does have toll roads but they also have parallel two lane access roads if you don't want to pay a toll. I am okay with tolls if it felt like getting value for it.

The drivers here are much much more aggressive, but it's for speed, not for being passive aggressive dicks. If you are not stepping on the gas or going 85 in a 75, they will let you know about it. Not just 1 dick driver, but all of them and it helps get that lazy driver to get in the right lane.

If I need furniture, there's Nebraska Furniture Mart in the colony about the size of 5 football fields, fresh restaurants, authentic mexican joints like Hacienda Ranch (which invented the frozen margarita), and it's just a refreshing pleasant place to be despite what you view and read in the news.

One of the most disgusting things I hated about Seattle metro was the gas stations. Cramped, dark, antiquated service pumps. Just really ghetto with nothing convenient about them. Always felt like I needed a tetanus shot. Always seemed like you would have to go inside these shitty stations to use the "outhouse" on the inside. You know, gang signs, non functional sinks, borrow a key. Like the backwoods you see in movies. Here in Texas, we have QuikTrip, RaceTrac, and Bucees. QT offers made to order kitchens, I think RaceTrac does too, and Bucees is very famous for going above and beyond for having clean restrooms and other treats they make in-house.

Grocery stores here are similar to Seattle. We have Tom Thumb (Safeway), Kroger (Fred Meyer), and Trader Joes. But in addition, there's not one but several Trader Joes and Whole Foods. But my all time favorite is Market St. They actually make some decent take home foods in their deli that rival making it at home. My tastes are Whole Foods style but price conscious and they definitely meet that requirement. Just very FRESH and with a smile. They don't have racks to stick the cart in, as they insist on taking the cart out for you and taking it back 100% of the time. Each time I've gone grocery shopping minding my own business (because that's what Seattle instills in you), I always get someone striking up a joke about the produce or ideas on what they plan to make that night, or the hard to open produce bags and smiles all around. None of this passive aggressive bullshit I had for 8 years.

To that asshole "HarryWang", ohh that's so original. Anyway, some Seattle coworkers came for their 1st visit and they LOVED it and can't wait to come back. So fuck you if you think it's all about "Applebees" you one dimensional piece o shit. If everywhere else was sooooooooo shitty, why is Toyota and Kubota relocating their headquarters to north Texas? Yeah, exactly your blinded jealousy has you sounding like a 3 year old who won't share.

In the week these coworkers visited, we went to Top Golf and Dave and Busters. Top Golf is a full serve facility and they kissed our ass to make our visit enjoyable. You NEVER saw service like that in Seattle. Yeah D&B is a chain, but at least it's variety that you can choose or NOT choose to participate in. In Seattle, it was just one dimensional shit like teriyaki and dive bars serving the same over rated Red Hook. Where's your precious Boom Noodle? Ohh it closed. Where's your other dive joints that can't seem to stick around more than a year?!!

That's my random experiences so far which has been terrific and I would encourage those who think they are "stuck", to start packing. Take the negative "why don't you leave?" mentality from these damp hillbilly tards and act on it on YOUR terms. Why stick in a shitty damp region that hates you and has the customer service skills of a disgruntled postal worker? Anywhere is better than PNW.

"Seattle Reset", the follow-up

Default-member

I've realised that the best "Seattle Reset" is the one that gets you on a plane and your stuff on a moving truck out of Seattle.

I've been looking at international removals companies who can get my belongings out of Seattle.

Instead of hoping for a situation that would let someone else pay for the removals, I'm going to pay the costs myself.

I may be slightly skint for a while, but the end result will be worth it.

I am greatly looking forward to handing out "pink slips" to some of Seattle's individuals and businesses.

Seattle, you're fired ...

... and it feels absolutely wonderful to get to a point where I can finally say that.

Seattle Sucks and here is why.
Hateful people.
People who never smile.
People here always seem mean.
No one ever seems happy here.
Lots of bullies here.
Lots of F**ked up people here with weird
neurotic hang-ups.
People here lack ANY social skills, I almost want to ask "Didn't you learn anything while you were with Mom & Dad"? Socially retarded is the word.
And last but certainly not least?
People here seem really clingy!
needy too.
It is for all of these reasons that I'm trying to get a career where I can travel & FREQUENTLY or perhaps relocate.
Seattle is AWFUL!
And so are it's retarded natives.

lack of social skills

Default-member

I wish I had not moved here. The people here are ice cold. The average Seattleite is very rude and somewhat stupid. After living in world-class cities, I can't get over how stupid and low brow the people here are.

Seattleites somehow think two objects can occupy the same space. This happens when I drive and in my gym classes. No, your SUV cannot occupy the same space as my prius. Your SUV does not turn in its own radius. For some reason, the people driving the SUVs are all disheveled, overweight, middle aged women.

Maybe Seattleites should think about brushing their hair and showering before leaving the house in the morning.

There is no dating scene. If the men here can't hold eye contact, what are the possibilities they will go on a date? I almost joined a dating organization, but the coordinator admitted that Seattle men are hopelessly clueless, unwilling to take the first step, and have to be coached for months on end before they might ask a woman out.

Doctors will either be completely inept or hopelessly rude. You won't be able to get even the most minor of problems treated.

Locals will go out of their way to try to drive you back to where you came from.

God forbid you should accidently make eye contact. In other parts of the country men actually looked at me. Here, if I actually glance at a guy, they will glare at me in great annoyance.

People are hopeless overachievers here. This actually is not a good thing, and has been taken to such extremes you won't be able to take a dance class without the constant commentary from your dance partner that you are hopelessly inept.

Documentary about The Freeze

Default-member

I am making a documentary about the Seattle Freeze. I am an experienced filmmaker who has lived in Seattle for the past 8 years. Using interviews, I want to explore everyone's personal experiences with The Freeze and their opinions on it. I want to portray a very clear, honest, and accurate depiction of this social/cultural phenomenon.
If you are interested, please leave a comment below.

Seattle losers, fuck off

Default-member

I'm in shock that this is Seattle.. I'm in shock that the Space Needle was disgusting and only consisted of a lemonade stand, overpriced food, and a pan flute band with horrible music. I'm in shock that there is nothing worth while in this entire place, besides looking at the pretty mountains, good luck finding the time to drive out to them, you have to work 40+ hours a week in order to pay your rent.

I'm cultured, i've lived in 5 different states, traveled to 4 different countries and grew up in a major, successful, non-depressing city, this is hands down the worst place I've ever lived in my entire life.

I could literally type all day about the varieties of hell I have experienced in this place but what shocks me the most is the deplorable social skills and people that exist here. I've never met more stuck up (for no fucking reason, you are not special you are a sheep) more passive aggressive, or more fucking stupid then the people I have encountered in this place.

Do Seattle people know how to have a conversation? Hold the door? Meanwhile, don't get me started on the jobs I've had here....I've never experienced such awkward and down right rude people then I have at where I've worked. All three jobs people can not handle a second of me due to the fact I didn't grow up here and I had some criticisms, I've even had someone freak out on me because they were sick of hearing the negatives of this place (sorry for the reality check). and then men... what the fuck. I've had to edit this because some men here seem to have gotten upset that I said "men stare at me" so because they can't seem to get laid I've removed the sentence. :)

Seattle, get your shit together. I'm running away from here as fast as I can... Worst year of my life, and I'm not wasting another second here. Enjoy your influx of Indians and Asians, they're really making your culture great.

Seattleites are like the Linux community

Default-member

I realized today Seattleites are the Linux users of society: Pedantic, patronizing, smug, with that "warm and happy in a pile of shit" mentality. They never want anything to improve, they constantly tell "outsiders" how much better their community is, then push people away. Any minor criticism or attempt to improve anything is met with extreme hostility, even when it is an honest attempt to fix a problem. They always make excuses, deny, deny, deny, and then the next day they are just as convinced of their superiority as before.

The best thing to do is spread the word far and wide so the rest of the country knows what a backwards ignorant place Seattle actually is. Just because it's liberal (only in the sense that they like their drugs and deviant sex) doesn't mean they're not ignorant hillbillies.

I pray for everyone in Seattle

Default-member

Hello everyone,

I definitely have to agree with many of you that Seattle is a really hard city to live in, specially if you are a single individual coming from another state. I am in my late twenties, and thank God that I am finally leaving after 3 of my most miserable years of my life.

What brought me here was school, and what kept me here was a great paying job, but the lack of social life was really not worth it. I met "1" friend that's not from Seattle, but left right after finishing school. The absence of my only friend made it hard for me to cope with Seattle.

After my friend left, I begin to exercise and read tons of books, but it was not enough. I needed human interaction. The only thing that came close to talking to a human was on Skype. I began knowing myself more than before since "all" of my days where spend by myself. I attempted to socialize by volunteering, going out to bars, joining salsa clubs, taking language classes, playing basketball/soccer, playing an instrument, signing up for meetup groups, joining coworkers/roommates for events, taking yoga classes, and the list goes on. Making friends was just not happening, so I gave up and decided to focus on my goals and the things that I enjoy doing. It helped me beat many days, but I personally wasn't strong enough for others, which led me to have feelings of insignificance, extreme levels of self-hate, and even suicidal thoughts. Thankfully, I only got a couple of weeks to endure in this city.

Thanks everyone for reading my post. I really hoped one day, everyone will find peace in their lives.

By the way, here are my two cents for those that are planning to live in Seattle (not visit, but live):
1) Please don't come by yourself
2) Read about "Solitary confinement" prison cells, and it's psychological effects.
3) Understand why NASA never sends 1 person to space
4) Have multiple hobbies or be extremely skilled at one
5) Read about the culture of Seattle (may want to start with this whole website)
6) Have a workout routine and a healthy eating habit.
8) Be prepared to get your heart & soul broken
9) Get used to a lot of time by yourself.
10) Be very careful with the people that are pretending to be your friend so that you can join "amway" or so that you can receive some type of financial advising (Stay away from these people, they just want your money NOT your friendship).
11) Save a lot of money when you are here.
12) Don't make too much of an effort to make friends. The people that truly love you, and want to be around you will eventually enter your world, but once they have, don't lose them; Friends and Family are the best things in the world, and nothing can replace that.
13) Learn how to enjoy the small things and TRY to be grateful.
14) Don't drink alcohol to escape reality (read #4 again)
15) Read, read, read, read, and read.
16) Focus on your goals
17) Get a dog or a cat if you can or volunteer at a animal shelter
18) Remember that as of July 25th, 2015 there are 7,331,065,710 people in the world, so don't let "Seattle" get to you.

Awful Seattle Residents

Default-member

Am I completely wrong, or are Seattle residents generally unpleasant and unfriendly?
Good luck having a decent conversation with someone or finding anyone kind or outgoing. There are decent people here undoubtedly (many of them are from out of state) but my general experience has been bad.
Another problem: SOCIAL AWKWARDNESS. Somebody needs to teach the people of Seattle how to hold normal conversations and how to interact with people.
I was born in Seattle but raised in Northern California, where in my experience people are generally very rude as well. I moved back to Seattle recently and I was excited because I almost immediately met a really attractive, beautiful woman. I asked her out, and she agreed to meet me at a certain time. I went there, and stood around in the rain for like 30 minutes and she never came. What a bitch. That was just an early warning for me what this city is actually like.

Hope you all die

Progressive state? Maybe in your Seattle delusions.

Minnesota decriminalized pot in 1976. Yea, you guys are some real trailblazers. Biggest thing you have to brag about is that you have a state full of useless stoners. Gay marriage? Who cares? Again, Washington was far from the first to take that step.

Washington state didn't make bestiality illegal until 2007 upon a Boeing employee dying after being boned in the ass by a horse in Enumclaw. That's a fact, look it up. Certainly the world was impressed with your "progressive" laws then.

Liquor sales were not privatized until 2011. The state was officially added to the union in 1889. People gladly voted to privatize liquor sales that has a stupid high tax rate which made the product even more expensive. But when you have a state full of drunks and drug addicts why not? The state and liquor board fucked you all in the ass on that one and everyone spread wide with a smile on their face for it.

In 2003 a woman named Maria Federici lost her eyesight and could have been killed when a piece of wood flew out of the back of an unsecured pick up truck and crashed through her windshield. At the time it was perfectly legal to NOT secure a load in the back of truck, because the white trash hillbillies in Washington couldn't be bothered or figure out how to tie a knot in some rope when high on meth or heroin. I should have taken that as a sign to leave.

Everyone acts like a world renowned food critic, but unless you live on salmon (wild not farmed of course) and produce from your garden the food in Seattle sucks. Some decent Thai and Indian, but pizza, Italian, Mexican or any other food? Forget it!

The only building that sorry ass city is known for is the Space Needle. Built in 1963 and never had the exterior cleaned until 2006. Why try to clean a international landmark though? Last time the idiots in Seattle tried to improve a major structure it was the Kingdome and the chemical that was used caused the building to deteriorate even faster than it was. Probably has something to do with the lazy slobs in and around Seattle never washing their filthy 40 year old cars, homes or themselves for that matter.

While I am on the subject of failed improvements, how's that 520 floating bridge coming along? Nothing like waiting decades to fix something that was a piece of crap in the first place. Now people stupid enough to live there pay a huge toll daily to cross that deathtrap. Wasn't the main genius on that project fired due to faulty pontoons and didn't know what he was doing?

About as hilarious as your Bertha project. You morons do realize many engineering publications outside of your dank pit are having a field day making fun of Seattle for that don't you? Much the same way the original Galloping Gerdie Tacoma Narrows bridge has been studying around the world as an example of how NOT to engineer a bridge.

If the city had any sense they would had any sense the Monofail would have been torn down after the World's Fair. Seriously, it goes a few blocks and isn't functional half of the time.

Why don't we build this huge ugly viaduct, wait 60 years, then decide to replace that with an underground tunnel in some of the worst geological conditions we can? Make sure there is no reverse on the tunnel boring machine too. So when it hits a pipe that the state knew was in front of the machine you can't get it out easily for repairs. The Alaskan Way Viaduct was probably a tribute to the women in that city, big, ugly, boring and unstable.

Speaking of the women there, my god! Seattle must have a contest to see who can be the ugliest, pastiest, fattest, covered with stupid tattoos women on the planet. Not saying every woman has to try and look like a Hollywood starlet type, but what a pack of knuckle-dragging dead eyed twats! Same goes for the men! Most of the dykes have bigger dicks than the men in Seattle. I think they were all spawned from the Fremont Troll and abundance of sex offenders.

If you are in bad enough luck to have to use the ferry system, hope you like to wait. Some of those ferries are 80 years old and on any given day the West Seattle or Vashon boats are down. Any time one of the vessels is replaced it's usually a hand me down.

Speaking of old garbage I have never seen a city cling so tightly to the past in the stupidest ways possible. Case in point was a Denny's that was slated for demolition in the Ballard area back in the mid-2000s. Turds in that region went so far as to try and have a decrepit ass old Denny's, the same Denny's you only go to when your drunk at 4am, registered as a landmark to prevent it from being torn down. Wasn't the first Denny's ever to exist, no historical value at all. But let's get all up in arms about that because Ballard still isn't a group of stinky Scandinavian fishermen. Times and places change people, maybe the note from 1889 didn't get there yet.

In closing I would like to say, fuck Seattle, fuck Washington, fuck your Prius, fuck your Datsun truck with the Michael Dukakis in 88 bumper sticker, fuck the boring ass skyline, fuck all the ICP Juggalo fans that migrate there, fuck your lame ass hipsters who have not come up with a single original idea of their own, fuck whiny ass Kurt Cobain, I sincerely hope your suicide rate increases one hundred fold and if America ever gets hit with a nuclear missile I hope it lands on Pioneer Square.
