People in Charleston, the state capitol which is located in Kanawha County, sometimes act superior to the rest of the state. Meanwhile, some people outside of West Virginia make fun of all West Virginians.
I likely shouldn't tell this story, but when I worked for a national charitable organization I attended a regional meeting of some sort at a resort. I introduced myself to a group from Virginia, and one of them, hearing only that I worked out of the Charleston office, said, "Don't worry about him being from West Virginia. He's from Charleston, where I used to live, and it's not like the rest
of the state."
All of us think we're a little better than the other guy, I guess.
