Howdy, Partner. Wyoming Named One Of The Rudest States In America
Well, I'm sure this will ruffle some feathers, or maybe not? I mean, a vast majority of Wyomingites don't want outsiders coming to Wyoming, so if we have this in a study, would we use it as a badge of honor? Don't come here, we're rude? I mean, it could work. I know our secondary slogan is come for the nature then leave. But rude? I've never really thought about that.
According to the website, Zippia, Wyoming comes in as the 13th most rude state in the US. I mean, we're in good company, both Utah and Nebraska fall in the top 20 as well. So much for the Midwestern kindness, Nebraska. And Utah landed at number 8.
So, how do they figure rudeness by state, did I say that right?
They grab data in a few different ways. Here's what they said in the study.
To determine which states are the rudest, we looked at 4 areas:
- Percent of rude drivers
- Average tip
- Amount of cursing to customer service agents
- How rude the rest of the country finds the state
Looking at the number, 4 percent of our drivers are considered bad drivers, they look at road rage infractions like tailgating and other aggressive driving tactics, so a rough average would be about 1 in 25 drivers are bad, according to their numbers.
What else did we not fare well in? Tipping standards are 20 percent. Wyoming averages 16.8 percent. Which isn't awful, but it's not quite the standard.
Both of those gave us some rough numbers when it comes to being rude overall.
So, what do you think? Are we rude? Let us know on the app.
