"Cali"

I HATE when people say "cali".  For the 8 years I have lived in Utah I have always been annoyed when people ask me where I am from. I instinctively say California. 90% of the time I get a response that sounds like, "Oh, you're from Cali?!" as if it makes you (or them) sound so much cooler. No, I did not say Cali, I said I was from California.

Well, recently my 16 year old brother moved up to Salt Lake City and we were chatting one day. He was asking me why everybody calls California "Cali"? It's official, even the little grommet thinks it's irritating and odd.
