I guess this is the week of strange studies or something, but this one is really fascinating. By listening to recorded phone calls, researchers found that people from Ohio swear a lot and are really rude. In their defense, some of them have to live in Toledo, which is enough to put anyone in a foul mood.
But here's the interesting part. We're rude as fuck. Yes, Tennessee. We don't swear much (except for me, oops), but we're the fourth rudest state in the land! Surrounded on all sides by courteous states, we're apparently the jerks of the South. Even Kentucky is more courteous than us, which is depressing. They have better healthcare, the Colonel's secret recipe, and are more courteous? Jerks.
We have to do something to change our reputation. So, the next time you hear "This call may be recorded" just remember to throw in a few gratuitous thank-yous. We can't let Kentucky be better than us at everything.
