If I worked for Amazon, that particular dis would probably cut me deep.

South union is a shiathole of ravers, hobos, and sports fans coming home from the game. There was no goddamned neighborhood to speak of. That said, Amazon/Expedia employees in Seattle are just 2nd class Microsofties really.

//I know, I was one of them.
///I miss the beer
////I don't miss the average skinny long haired blonde wearing skinny jeans being MALE.
////Or the fact that the average female outweighed her boyfriend in that city.

wow. thats a mighty high horse for someone from Seattle.

Little known fact is that Roebuck was black and Sears was forced to drop the name when they expanded in the South after WWII.

Amazon has a very diverse hiring policy. The locals are probably upset with the added "color", so to speak. [no, skin color, you PC fascists, cultural color]

It sounds like their diversity includes an abundance of stuck up Am Holes. However, part of it is culture shock in that people who grow up in a small town tend to be friendlier and appreciative.

She worked for Amazon and was a hipster. At the end of the movie she wormholed out of Toronto with Scott. They coulda ended up in Seattle.

That's assuming the poster isn't full of shiat. Or is fake / made by the blogger.

Soooooo I shouldn't talk about work as I'm walking with friends and/or co-workers on the street?

Seriously? Some of the list is definitely a sign of a pain in the ass being employed there, but I find it heavily intriguing that this person decided to basically call those few people out in public as opposed to asking them to refrain from such behavior directly...

Tingle007: Wow seatle is full of pretentious dicks isnt it


Christ yes. And unlike California they're not even pretentious attractive douches either. It's a land where thick glasses neck beard and flannel are sexy, and proper female grooming is optional. *shudder* chicks with armpit hair.

That said, 2/3 of Seattleites are transplants and enough of those are fun enough to give the town some personality. I had a blast when I was there, unhip as I was.

//this is how bad the hipness got. When someone started to Karaoke Radiohead's "Creep" the entire bloody bar broke out in song. I swear the entire city's composed of highschool nerds.

Seattle's home of the passive-aggressive and the local whiner/activist. Craigslist, the Seattle Stranger's "Missed Connections" section - these are the places where people take shots at each other.

CSB time,

I worked in NYC in the same building as Google. They were notorious in the building for being jerks and doing strange stuff. Clearly acting all high and mighty. So one day I'm going from one POP (if you don't know what that is ask your geek friends) on one of the top floors to another on the 3rd floor. As the elevator is going down it stops on Google's floor. The doors open and I see a secretary sitting at an odd shaped desk in front of giant letters spelling Google. There was something that looked like a lava lamp and it was generally that odd modern design you'd expect.

As I'm standing there the door begins to close. This hipster looking dude with a neck beard riding a scooter comes firing at the elevator and yells "Hold the elevator". I have no time to reach and the doors are about 2 inches apart then the guy crashes head first into the doors. For reasons I can't explain the doors open and he stumbles on giving me this look like "Thanks for nothing jerk off". I then proceed to handle the situation with my normal pose and grace by laughing hysterically until I get off at my floor.

Then a week later we got a memo from building security that they lost their python and keep any eye out for it.

Sorry you didn't like it man

I work in SLU and the only problem I have with Amazon is that it is impossible to find lunch for under $8 here. Also, no pho. Everywhere else in Seattle there is pho every three blocks but not a single damn pho place here.

You have to ride the SLUT down to Westlake for Pho. The good news is Thai Curry Simple is opening soon where Bad Monkey Bistro was.

"Do you not realize that you are working for an updated version of Sears and Roebuck so you should check yourself?"

As an Amazon employee pointed out to me, at the height of their power, Sears Roebuck built the world's tallest building. So... awesome?

Ahh...I forgot about the pho. Goddamn it was good. I was mostly eating it in Bellevue and the uni district. When I lived in cap hill there was great korean but I never found good pho. South Union had those really good bbq lunch places too...goddamn I miss the food.

I...severely miss the other "out of towner" friends I had there, who have all gotten sick of the city and left now. I severely miss the plethora of cheap eats and drinks. I don't miss Seattleite culture or the type of people that collect in Fremont. And I REALLY don't miss the dating scene. Elsewhere in the USA (or Canada) an average guy with a great job, slight potbelly and mediocre personal style can have score a hot girlfriend with a a good personality. In Seattle, it wasn't that I was out of my league...those hotties just...didn't exist. Seriously. In 2 years I think I saw maybe two women I found attractive. I probably hit every club and party in the city, and they just weren't THERE. I'm not exaggerating when I say that for all the couples I knew, the girl outweighed the guy. All my friends had problems getting laid in Seattle...that went away the second they left the state.

//really miss the pay (twice what I make now) and the gorgeous, always-different dawn view when crossing the bridge to Bellevue.

Something tells me you've never spent much time in Seattle - passive/aggressive central.
South Lake Union is full of wealthy, white people and condos and boats. Yes, there's a Whole Foods right there.
We lived on a boat on Lake Union. Lulz.
No.

Does seattle not realize this is how 90% of you act in foreign countries? Give it time, it will pass.

But then seattle people have always been self important douchebags anyways, pearl jam was 20 years ago people, nobody cares anymore.

Also, sounds like an opportunity for a business to come in and do six dollar lunches.

You wouldn't be able to cover your rent by charging just 6.00 for lunch.
You've never had pho?
That needs to be fixed.

I would think that would depend on foot traffic, overhead cost, type of food you serve, health permit required, food regulations, and what you define as lunch.

Also if you do breakfeast and switch up for lunch.

Then again, I live in a city that loves taco trucks on the side of roads/ in abandoned parking lots at 3 am in the morning.

We do business with amazon and I've been to the new campus a few times. Even before they moved down there we would stay on Lake Union so I could walk to Feierabend. MMMM schnitzel sandwich and a L of something German.

At least the I5 to Montlake Bridge commute is fast now with the $3.50 toll causing people to go on I90.

Don't know how you would. Pho involves bigass bowls and spoons and chopsticks, and not the disposable kind.
