Welcome to Seattle

Just after we arrived in Seattle, I was returning the rental minivan that took us from the airport. The person in line behind me said, "You're from back east, aren't you?"

I allowed that I had lived there and asked how he knew.

"Your backpack is from L.L. Bean. We usually run people with those out of town."

"But didn't you see that I'm wearing an REI jacket?", I asked.

He quickly changed his tone. "Oh, I didn't notice. In that case, welcome to Seattle!"
