Get out while you still can!


HAHAHAHA. I think getting Spokane'd would more involve Bud Light and Pickup Trucks (shudders)... Actually my story was from a party in Pullman.

And wait a second arent most all jobs in Spokane Minimum wage (or at least not living wages, unless its upper management)

Dude, if you were really from Spokane, you'd know that bud light is for fancy, black-sneaker occasions only. I mean, most of the time, you actually have to be wearing a shirt, shoes, AND pants to get into places that serve Bud Light.

Busch, Milwaukee's Best (the BEAST!), and Natty light are your every day "pickup truck" kind of beers.

I heard that if you can "do nails" or "manage a Jack In The Box" you can make more than minimum wage in Spokane. I don't think I'm qualified to do either of those jobs though, so I'm basically out of luck.

Shit man... Actually my friend Manages a Jack in the Box in Pullman (supose it isnt bad for a college student) and I work at Staples as a computer sales man (I make only $9.50 an hour, I was making $12 an hour as a tech but going to Japan and back to school was more important than working at Appleway). I was more making a generalization about how poor my shit town is. Think about this everyone, the second biggest city in WA and the average household income is about 30k a year... WEAK. Now that you mention it yeah Bud Light is kinda high class for everyday drinking around here... I remember asking me to buy 30pack cans of Keystone Light. Blech, that shit is the worst fucking piss water around. In fact I saw you put "The BEAST" on there. I often see signs for Milwaukee's Best beer 24packs on sale for like $6 on lower Division and some of the other shitty neiborhoods around the river. The lowest I drink is like Henrys Blue Boar. I typically have Kirin or Asahi in my fridge. Occasionally Ill have Fat Tire, Pyramid Apricot, or Northern Lights Brewery Bluberry Creme (I have a thing for fruit beers).

Heh. I'm going to stop generalizing about Spokane now, since I'm obviously WAAAAAY too good at it. As soon as you get out of school, GET OUT OF SPOKANE. Otherwise some chick is gonna try and trick you into "impregnating" her and "settling down". How do you think it got to be the second largest city in WA with no economy to speak of, no attractions to speak of, and being in the middle of literally - NOWHERE???

hahahah, good explaination. Actually now that I think about it I dodged the bullet on that knocking up a girl and getting married to someone I barely can stand thing. I was dating a girl since I was 17, later found out she was crazy, her family/she would constantly bug me about when we were going to settle down and have kids (I was in school then too). I fucking hated it. Not only that I couldnt stand being with the girl, cept I continued because I knew that she would try and kill herself if I broke up with her. Long stroy short... I broke up with her last year. Now Im dating a Japanese girl who hates Spokane. So as soon as I graduate Ive got a fast ticket out of here. I try to leave for as many months of the year as I can afford too.

Well in Canada, the term Rye is used way mroe than whiskey. If I go the bar, I (and others) order a "rye and coke." Maybe the drink itself is just more popular here. I would say it is much more common for somebody to show up with a bottle of Crown or Royal Reserve (Ryes) in oppose to Jack Daniels.
