jp saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:29 am
HAHAHA………..yes and I am also annoyed when you have to put in what country you are from and The Untied States isn’t the 1st on the list and then I have to scroll all the way down to the U’s.
Gretchen saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:35 am
You don’t know how many times I click on Palau instead of Pennsylvania…
Linda saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:37 am
The nice thing about Kansas is that when you type in K, Kansas pops right up. Those poor Kentuckyians… well, they should move to Kansas. 🙂
amanda @ fake ginger saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:40 am
Hey, us Alabama folk deserve some kind of perk for living down here.
GreatAunt saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:47 am
You are crackin’ me up, Bossy!
Larry Ohio saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:47 am
Yes! I thought I was the only one weird enough to think like that. I loved it when I lived in Florida, way closer to the top of the list than Ohio.
Dawn in Austin saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:03 am
Yes, I have thought of that very idea, every time I have to scroll all the way to Texas.
Linda saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:03 am
Sleepless in Seattle Washington
vuboq saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:04 am
I can honestly say that I have *never* considered moving to Alabama.
Happy Friday! *smooches*
William saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:05 am
I think the same thing ever since moving back to PA from FL.
AngeeRAH saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:06 am
Armed Forces Other? I have never seen that before and now I am intrigued…
Debby saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:09 am
I’ve learned that hitting “O” twice typically takes me to OK without scrolling.
Rorrington the Fireman saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:11 am
Glad you brought that up, Bossy. Moved from New York to Connecticut last year; get mildly gleeful every time that list pops up now, and I “only” have to scroll to the C’s instead of ALLLLL the way down to the N’s now. Man, I gotta get a life…..
Kristi Young saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:15 am
I love that Louisiana is the only “L” and sometimes you can type L and it brings you right to it!
Debbie saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:20 am
Usually you can type the first letter of your state and viola! you’re closer than you were before 🙂
hollygee saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:20 am
Used to live in Seattle WA. Then I moved to Vermont.
Now I live in California and I moved here ONLY for that advantage.
WebSavyMom saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:37 am
I’m in Virginia and here’s a shortcut tip, just hit the first letter on your keyboard and it will automatically take you there.
Unfortunately, I’ve almost sent things to the Virgin Islands vs. Virginia.
Manic Mommy saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:37 am
No. But when I used to listen to the radio for no school announcements, I always wanted to live in Abington or Andover instead of Somerville.
Mel saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:43 am
Um, no. And I grew up in South Carolina. Where I also no long live.
Bree saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:49 am
You’ve just stumbled upon one of the key reasons I moved from New York to Colorado…
monnik saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:57 am
most pick lists let you hit the letter of the state multiple times until you get the right one.
I usually type “I” 4 times to get through Idaho, Illinois and Indiana to get to Iowa. Easier than scrolling through the list.
Momish saysOctober 23, 2009 at 10:08 am
I simply *heart* you for this! Especially when I encounter those lists that include Palau because it screws my “P” option. I Hate that!
zidia saysOctober 23, 2009 at 10:17 am
Alaska might have more laughs!
ashley saysOctober 23, 2009 at 11:05 am
I’m with vuboq.
Also? Go Phillies!! it is kinda fun to be in PA when we are winning! (and not tearing the city down in celebration)
Grandma J saysOctober 23, 2009 at 12:26 pm
I feel the same way about the “year of birth” thing. I have to scroll forever.
Average Jane saysOctober 23, 2009 at 12:49 pm
That’s one good thing about living in Kansas. On most lists I can just type “K” and jump to it because it’s the first “K” state on the list.
Emily Rebekah saysOctober 23, 2009 at 12:57 pm
I live in Utah. Beat that. Bossy!
reen saysOctober 23, 2009 at 12:57 pm
YES from Texas!!
But #21 (monnik), thank you for saving me from that dire fate with your tip!
Mindy saysOctober 23, 2009 at 1:16 pm
What monnik said at #21, only I hit the “I” three times to get to Indiana.
Amelia saysOctober 23, 2009 at 1:18 pm
I’m in Arkansas, so we’re pretty close to the top. Not too shabby.
APeetsMom saysOctober 23, 2009 at 1:18 pm
so funny. Good Friday fodder. Thanks bossy!
Jen W. saysOctober 23, 2009 at 1:25 pm
You might consider Delaware. A shorter move for you, and we’re not that far from the top of the list!
Kimi saysOctober 23, 2009 at 1:34 pm
I’m in Florida, and on some of those lists, when you hit “F”, it brings up Federated States of Micronesia. Where the hell is that????
TheWordWire saysOctober 23, 2009 at 1:54 pm
Have to say that no, I’ve never fantasized about a move to Alabama. But thanks to this post, now I’m considering Palau… wait, it’s right in the ring of fire.
Guess I’ll stay put.
km saysOctober 23, 2009 at 2:07 pm
do you know how many times I’ve clicked United Arab Emirates as where I live??? Too many I tell ya.
I wish there was a choice that said America- yeah take that Canada, America’s Hat.
jim saysOctober 23, 2009 at 3:04 pm
Ya I agree with jp. I’m in the Untied States and get mad too!!
David saysOctober 23, 2009 at 3:08 pm
I’ve never even considered googling Alabama.
Red Hamster saysOctober 23, 2009 at 3:18 pm
Yes, entering the first letter of your state usually brings your state right up, except that the states appear in alphabetical order. I live in Iowa…which means that I have to hit “I” four times to get to my state…Idaho…Illinois…Indiana…Iowa.
If you live in “Northern Mariana Islands”…well…it might be just as fast to scroll down as enter “N” nine times. Where is that, anyway? Any comments from “Northern Mariana Islands”?
Erin saysOctober 23, 2009 at 3:19 pm
Alabama is the greatest state with the number 1 team in the nation. Bossy, if you ever come down here, I’ll show you a great time. Ya’ll, this place is awesome!!
The Great Getzby saysOctober 23, 2009 at 3:45 pm
Same reason I think of moving to Azerbaijan as opposed to living in the U.S.
dobes saysOctober 23, 2009 at 4:15 pm
Oh, Manic Mommy #18, you made me snort my coffee! I grew up in Brookline – but it STILL came after ALL the interminable Boston announcements!
Carrie saysOctober 23, 2009 at 4:53 pm
Damn straight I do. My only caveat is that I have to only hit *U* and there I am. That is not always such a good thing.
adria saysOctober 23, 2009 at 5:07 pm
When you live in WA you can just scroll to the bottom of the list… that’s pretty easy, too.
Bush Babe saysOctober 23, 2009 at 5:25 pm
Why the heck do you think I live in Australia (and no people, it’s NOT the same as Austria!)??
Not only does it start with A, but has only eight options in the State/Territory Dept. Nuff said.
Lisa saysOctober 23, 2009 at 6:48 pm
Yay! We’re #1 in college football too!!
Caroline saysOctober 23, 2009 at 7:39 pm
–Caroline in Hawai`i, formerly a resident of South Carolina, which is uncomfortably close to Alabama, and no offense to any of you readers in South Carolina OR Alabama, but… I hope you understand. Dudes, I live in HAWAI`I. Would YOU move???
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:12 pm
I didn’t realize that “Minor Outlying Islands” was an option, so I’d like to move there, please.
KathyB saysOctober 23, 2009 at 8:24 pm
I don’t usually get a first letter option. Kentucky is in the middle, but we call that one of the surcharges you pay for living here — sometimes :>)
Katie saysOctober 23, 2009 at 9:43 pm
YES! I was just thinking this as I paid for something online and had to select “New York” instead of my usual “California” Although living in NYC is hands down better, I do miss not having to scroll.
Heather saysOctober 23, 2009 at 10:20 pm
another PA girl who wonders where the heck is Palau even??
thatgirlblogs saysOctober 23, 2009 at 11:34 pm
I’m in California, but I still gripe about it!
Mommas Soapbox saysOctober 24, 2009 at 3:36 am
That is a crack up……. I type C and “California’ pops up, but I’ve always thought it would be great to live in Alabama ever since “Sweet Home Alabama” song came out……
Then when the movie came out it sealed the deal…. But here I sit in Cali.
I live in the mountains on a ranch……. I’m tryin’! (smile)
Mocha saysOctober 24, 2009 at 8:04 am
Sometimes, yes. I want to take the easy way out. Which is why I love being with you so much. You make it easy to love you. And Alabama.
unruly helpmeet saysOctober 24, 2009 at 8:45 am
Alabama is the worst place I have ever lived. 2 traffic accidents in one month. A gang broke onto our back porch and stall our hedgeclippers. The living room flooded every time it rained. Fundies stole the gravestones from our Halloween tableau.
I’d rather live in Humptulips, WA.
marly saysOctober 24, 2009 at 10:02 am
I have to confess that I never once thought of that, but I’m sure I will now!
Sven saysOctober 24, 2009 at 11:59 am
Entre nous, that’s why I moved to Australia.
josh saysOctober 24, 2009 at 1:32 pm
Being from Jerzee, I can say that it is quite a minor annoyance to have three other statez that also share a “New” in their title. It takes me an extra second to have to click down to NJ! WASTED TIME! WASTED TIME!
Enrico saysOctober 25, 2009 at 1:53 pm
SHORTCUT: All you have to do is hit the blank, then type the first letter of your state! It’ll jump you write to the states beginning with that letter.
martha in mobile saysOctober 25, 2009 at 4:47 pm
Trust me, bossy. That is not a good enough reason to move to Alabama. In fact, there isn’t a reason good enough to move to Alabama. (No offense intended to native Alabamians. You’re already there. Just a warning to those of us who moved there and then realized that California exists for a reason.)
Jason saysOctober 25, 2009 at 5:36 pm
This is one of the many reasons that I am glad to have moved from UTAH to CALIFORNIA. Such a time saver!
kerry saysOctober 26, 2009 at 10:32 am
Trying living in Virginia.
~annie saysOctober 26, 2009 at 4:10 pm
Alabama? Um, no thanks. I’ll stick with scrolling all the way to “Virginia.”
muskrat saysOctober 26, 2009 at 11:04 pm
GrandeMocha saysOctober 27, 2009 at 8:42 am
True dat Manic Mommy. I grew up in Woodhaven & I’m raising a kid in Waterford. Now I get a text message (from the radio station that plays the school closed anouncements) when school is closed. Much easier!
Sherri saysOctober 27, 2009 at 12:41 pm
Seriously where is Palau even?
meg saysOctober 31, 2009 at 12:26 am
