Why do I have to Pick the State?

Sometimes it’s the little things. If you have a website and are collecting user information why not fill out the state for me? Trust me I’m not from Alabama and I doubt I will ever live there. Sure I could be travelling out of town, but for the majority of the time I’ll be surfing at home.

If you don't want to put the effort into figuring out what State I'm from, how about filling in the state the majority of your customers come from. For instance if you are a small engineering firm in San Luis Obispo how about putting the default state as California. I'll know that you pay attention to details and desire to make working with you easier.

Now if you don't have a website or collect information from people I apologize if you now notice when the state isn't your own when you're filling out forms.
