The Rudest States In America
To many people, it probably isn’t surprising that Minnesota is ranked at the bottom of this list. It’s just not in Minnesotan nature to be rude. Best Life had them at the bottom of state rankings for general unfriendliness, as well as 48th for rude customers. The percentage of that state that was considered rude wasn’t even over one percent. The overall “Rudeness Score” given was a big, fat zero. Although, it was determined that the rudest city was Minneapolis-St. Paul.
South Carolina is a lot more rude than Minnesota. But that’s not exactly saying they’re that rude. South Carolinians are pretty polite overall. Their unfriendly and rude customer rank were 48th and 47th respectively. And their percentage of rude drivers was only 2.1. The overall rudeness score Best Life gave them was 2.31.
