I just got off the phone with one of my favorite people, who is from the Washington D.C. area, and we got into a conversation about what we call ourselves. , "the same."
While working on cruise ships there weren't a ton of American crew members so I went from saying Washington State to Seattle, to make it easier for everyone. Most of the crew members I ran into always assumed it was Washington D.C. Like that's the only one. NOT!
I checked online and there are only a handful of names for Washington residents. You can find them below on the poll and I would love for you to add yours. Growing up in Washington State, I would consider myself a real Washingtonian, do you?
Besides what Washingtonians call themselves I would say there are a few more tell-tale signs you're from the West Coast or the East Coast of Washington.
- Doesn't matter if it's raining, we would rather wear a hoody or a Northface jacket than carry an umbrella.
- Coffee shops on every corner, and we still will act like we can't find one close enough
- You might not even own a car because you take the subway, train, or taxi cab
- You're wearing a business suit during happy hour
