10 Things People ALWAYS Ask When They Know You’re From Southern California
When you live in a beautiful and popular place like Southern California, people always have tons of questions. Here are 10 of the most frequently asked questions we get in SoCal. I bet you’ve heard a few of these!
1. Have you ever been to In-N-Out?
Love it or hate it, I think we've all been to In N Out at least a gazillion times. Late night drive-thru anyone?
2. Does everyone drive a Prius?
Have you seen our gas prices? So, yes, many of us drive a Prius because the amount of money we spend on gas is the amount of a mortgage payment in the Midwest.
3. Have you ever been to Beverly Hills?
Why does everyone want to know if we've been to Beverly Hills? Yes, I've been there, but it's not nearly as cool as it looks in the movies.
4. How many times have you been to Disneyland?
Just because we live here doesn't mean we live at Disneyland. Have you seen the price of a ticket? It is the happiest place on earth, but you have to take out a small loan just to take the whole family.
5. Do you have a swimming pool?
That's a valid question, I guess. There are definitely more people with pools here in SoCal than other parts of the country. Do you have a pool or know other people who do?
6. Are you vegan, vegetarian or pescetarian?
Have a little fun with this one and tell them you're all three. And then order a steak. PS: I had to google pescetarian. How about you?
7. Have you ever seen snow?
Okay, that's an actual real question that I have been asked many times. Sometimes it's fun to play dumb and ask, "What's snow?"
8. Is traffic really THAT bad?
If only they knew the kind of traffic we put up with here in Southern California. But we love this place so we'll put up with a little hardship like a 90-minute commute just to drive seven miles in exchange for our glorious weather.
9. Do you spend every day at the beach?
The funny thing about this question is that I know very few SoCal locals who spend their time at the beach. Except for people who live in Venice Beach. It seems like everyone who lives there is ALWAYS at the beach.
10. Have you met any Hollywood celebrities?
Perhaps we have, but we're not all star struck like the rest of the country. If you've met one movie star you've met them all. They're just people.
Which one of those questions do you get asked the most? I find most people want to know about the weather, especially if it ever snows. If you need something to send your non-SoCal friends to make them even more jealous about the beauty of Southern California, share this article that shows
