10 Sure-Fire Ways To Make A Washington DC-ite Mad
People who live in Washington DC are typically very passionate. We believe in things very strongly and we will argue you on our points. And even though our beliefs and backgrounds differ, if you bring up any of these 10 things, we’ll argue with you. Because these are the 10 best ways to make someone from Washington DC mad.
1. Ask us why we think we should be a state.
We are taxed and yet, not represented in Congress. Why is that so confusing?
2. Cheer for the Cowboys.
Hail to the Redskins, all day, every day.
3. Stand on the wrong side of the escalator.
This is our number one pet peeve and IT IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT.
4. Tell us New York is better than DC.
No, not everyone in DC is just trying to move to New York.
5. Say you are from DC when you’re actually from Northern Virginia or Southern Maryland.
There is a difference.
6. Question Ovechkin.
He’s won the Hart Trophy three times, he has scored 50+ goals in at least 6 seasons. Most career points, most career goals, most career hat tricks for the Caps… need we go on?
7. Tell us you don’t like brunch.
If you don’t like brunch, you’ve never brunched in DC because we do brunch right.
8. Say there is no good pizza here.
We don’t need Chicago deep dish or New York style. We have jumbo slices.
9. Ask them where to park.
No one knows because no one drives here. Take the metro, walk or take a bus. If you do drive, we blame you for the traffic.
10. Complain how Washington is broken.
Don’t confuse the district with the government. We're not broken.
