Proud to Live in Seattle

Forbes recently published a story on cities with the highest inflation rate, and lucky me, Seattle is tied for the top spot. Not only do have the worst traffic, some of the highest house prices and cost of living, but we can now brag about the highest inflation rate. One of the reasons for this is, only in Seattle can they raise the prices of things and people will actually still pay for it. Other cities keep inflation down but not buying crap as the prices go up.

Well Seattle, if we are going to be bad at something , we might as well be at the top of the list…

The problem here too is that people think they are rich. They drive financed BMWs and actually feel GOOD about paying higher because they are snooty.

I noticed that my beloved Portland is #5, but I think this is due to nice steady and sustainable growth minus the snoot.

Okay CM, say it: "just go back to Portland then asshole". Well, companies down there don't egregiously overpay people for skate jobs either :)
