US States With the Rudest People

The Top Ten
1 Ohio Ohio is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. Ohio is the 34th largest by area, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated of the 50 United States.

Omg ok so I would say most of Ohio does not fit this description. Most of Ohio is just farm land and schools... (we have amazing education)... however, it seems people put this aside and pride themselves on who can be the rudest person possible. I would say this is especially true in the big cities. The 3 C's Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. The areas are extremely affluent (excluding some areas of Cleveland). When it's a norm for everyone to have 2 million dollar houses and 4 cars, in order to stand out people need to be rude... especially for Columbus considering that almost 1,000,000 people are crammed in a small area. Ohio sucks! Do not come here... :l

I have never been to Ohio, but almost everyone I have met from there is so arrogant and rude (and I have met a large number of them because one of their main freeways leads directly to my state). They think they know more than anyone else and that they are better in every way than others around them (and I am white, so it's not a racist thing in my case). As far as backstabbing goes: I once worked closely with a woman from Ohio that I initially thought was very nice, but before too long, I found out that she was lying to me and our bosses and that she was trying to set me up, pretending that I hadn't done some of the work she had (allegedly) given me! Thankfully, one of the doctors we worked for saw through her scheme and let me know! Because of that and many other negative experiences, I unfortunately keep my guard up whenever I meet someone from Ohio.

Here is my honest views on everyday environment in Ohio. I'm from a bordering state. In the last 3 years I have made countless visits to Ohio for 3-4 Days ar a time Got to know several people and I can honestly say it's like a different world. It still blows my mind how no matter what age race or financial status, people try so hard to impress and or "one up" others. It's like they are competing with their neighbors. At first it funny but I feel sorry for the people I've watched and listened to. It's sad And Parents here don't parent their kids they just want to be ther best friends. They are so much drinking going on in this state it's a wonder anyone is alive. ANd thr cops are very corrupt and easy to sway.

Ohio is the worst state ever... poor education system, property tax, sales tax, local tax, very stinky and dirty. Very high crime rate. Many of the porest cities in all of america here. Entirely farmland, nothing to do here. Rudeness is at its very finest here. Do yourself a favor and permanently avoid this "state".

2 New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

I've seen ruder people in states like New York and Mississippi. However I find it funny that people judge an entire piece of land when there are rude people in every town, city, state, country, and continent of the world.

I'm from Jersey, born and raised. We're awful. We don't sugar coat anything, we tailgate like there's no tomorrow, and out of state people will learn this pretty quickly when we're doing 90 on a freeway instead of 65. Our jokes are at the expense of others, we're quick to judge and call names. Not to mention the political divide is astounding in my area- there's an even split of conservatives and liberals, and we all come for each other's throats when we get into it. Bullying is a serious issue here, as is suicide and opiate related deaths. Not only are we rude, but we're particularly cruel. Don't move here unless you want your feelings to get hurt.

The armpit of America. Terrible drivers, bullies, residents angry about nothing and are obnoxious, terrible accents, complainers, if they know you are not from that garbage state they will shun you, you can't pump your own gas, the people are shady, the state is dirty, the beaches are so gross and you have to pay for a "beach tag" to have access to the beach!... Jughandle turns? I lived there for a very brief time 20 years ago and because of my experiences there I refuse to step foot in New Jersey. It should be number one on this list. It should be disconnected from the U.S. and become and island of its miserable self.

I moved to Florida recently and found that the general population of people are from New Jersey. Well being from upstate New York, (not the city saratoga area) I had found that in the summer idiots from Jersey and New York City migrated up to Sartoga and Lake George area. I found that fatalities when up on I -87 during this time and more aggression took place at night clubs, proof is in the pudding. Now I am living down here in an area loaded with jersyites and all I can say is they are the rudest pushiest pieces of crap I have ever come across.

3 Florida Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.

I'm retired. I have visited Florida January and February for the last twenty years. I'm called a Snow Bird, because I Winter in Florida to avoid the snow. I have found a lot of very rude and very pushy people in Florida. A few were nice. I asked one of the nice ones why so many people are very rude and very pushy in Florida. He said that almost all Florida residents moved to Florida from other states, and they bring their bad habits with them. I thought that was a good explanation, but it didn't help me interact with the very rude and very pushy people. Obviously, I don't Winter in Florida for the friendly people. I could give you fifty examples, but I'll limit myself to only one. While shopping in a crowded large Florida grocery store I noticed a man in his 30's driving his shopping cart like a race car while throwing things into it and running into other customers and other carts. He never smiled or apologize to anyone. It was as though his only goal was to get in and out of the ...more

I have lived in South Florida my whole life and I can attest that the people in FL are not nice. If you think you are going to find good friends and good relationships think again! Impossible to achieve because people here use other people and when they are done they throw you away. I've met many people that when I spoke to them about FL they confess that it is true! People here are superficial, rude, racist and narcissistic. It's a party state nobody is taken seriously here everyone just want to have a good time. I pray to God to help me get me and my family out of this sinful state where people morals and values are in the dirt. Oh and FL only cares about tourists, old retired people and restaurants Business screw the locals they say. I don't want to have kids here and raise them around these people. Plain and simple people in FL are trash.

Professionally and privately the worst, most selfish, lazy, arrogant, reckless, and manipulative people. Not transplants but FL born and raised. Fake nasty nice with zero southern charm. Beach trash mentality without actually caring about the environment. It's soo sad of a place. I came here for work and I cannot wait to be able to leave.

Floridians are very nasty, rude and lack class. All they do is constantly complain and spread negativity mainly to the people from the Northeast. It's like what the hell is your problem with people from the North? They are also very racist. I have been to many of the other states and never seen the miserable nastiness like Florida.

4 Massachusetts Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England part of the northeastern region of the United States.

I have lived here my whole life and I love it. We have thick skin. No, we are not the nicest people, if you want nice don't come here. We don't say hello to every person on the street(people are nuts, we have enough of our own problems), and we don't play nice. If you do happen to get our attention we are just going to make fun of you and belittle you. It is how we show love to one another. Some may not understand it, but it is how we are, if you don't like it don't stay here. No one asked you to come here and if you are just going to whine about how "your" state is so much better than our state, by all means GO HOME! We don't want you here anyway. The less cry babies the better.

I was born in MA, lived there 33 years and then spent 15 years on the road, living in 14 other states (including the first 3 on this list). Now I'm back in MA. Compared to GA or TX, or even CA, then women in MA are so unattractive and rude it's unbelievable. I dated models from all the states but you have to trade WAY down if you move here, to the point you'll probably just go MGTOW. A lot of women will act super nice one day and then huddle with all their friends and then you get the cold shoulder forever. Attractive women are so rare in MA that any girl who is a 6 or better not only thinks she's too good for you, but will act extremely offended if you don't assume she is too good for you. I literally have dated some of the most beautiful women I ever knew, but nothing is good enough for MA women. Don't get me wrong: there are lots of beautiful and sweet women in MA, they are from out of state and eventually the other girls will explain the deal to her: "if they all act rude, men ...more

I am currently living in Massachusetts for the past 1 and half and people here are so rude. If you say hi, they will not answer you. Or sometimes, they will look away, pretend they don't see or hear you. Even, coworkers will see you outside of work, they will pretend they don't know you. I got into elevators, I say Hi, no one bothers to answer. I am talking from experience, I was at massgeneral hospital, I took the elevator, there were Drs, nurses, and others, I said good morning everyone, and no one answered. I was shocked.

I have lived in Massachusetts most of my life with the exception of two years I lived in San Diego. I agree this has to be the rudest state, people ignore you, if you smile or say hello they think your a lunatic. The two years I lived in California I made so many friends unfortunately I decided to move back home. As soon as I stop working I'm high tailing it out of this state.

5 Missouri Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern United States. It is the 21st most extensive, and the 18th most populous of the fifty states.

I lived in MO in several months and wouldn't go back because there's a disturbingly high percent of rude, hateful, slow-mind yokels there. These tend to be religious fanatics at the same time. Though I learned these usually treat the locals terribly as well. There're a lot of nice and friendly people in Missouri, but that high percent of angry yokels ruins the rest. These are usually found outside the cities, in small towns or country side. They range from just bad, snarky customer service, where people also try to let you know you're not "one of them" so they can treat you bad, cheat you (I was attempted to be completely cheated by businesses multiple times there, very unusual experience), to people running foul mouth about everyone different from them, "outsiders", etc (even though some of them are outsiders to MO themselves, having moved there from elsewhere, but the very reason a lot of these yokels move there is to have a place where they think it's OK to openly hate others whom ...more

Never in my life have I seen such rude and hateful people in my life. No one will talk to you in public and good luck trying to talk to someone they will just brush you off. People will stare at you and make faces at you. Most people have their circle of friends and that is about it. You walk anywhere into a store, gas station, anywhere and get close to someone they run off. Large crowds are also horrible because no one wears a mask and even the police are anti maskers there. Everyone is trying to run and avoid everyone and it's a total mad house. It is ultra conservative and so people are very judgmental and all of that. If you wear something that shows skin people will run from you like the plague and had a lady and a man tell me "I was making them uncomfortable". I have people huffing and puffing and people are not wrong when they talk about the huff and puff if you get near them they literally huff and puff. It amazes me.

From what people are saying is true. It's hit or miss some are really nice and some are extremely rude. It's also true that people seem to be nice to people they know but rude to strangers. I accidentally bumped into someone at the store and he purposefully ran his kart into the isle and immediately said "excuse you". I have had people purposefully run into me at the store before for no reason. Everywhere you go people just give you nasty looks for no apparent reason. People on the roads are rude as well. The road rage is horrible people cut you off, brake check you, cars fly around the car who brake checked you honking and all kinds of stuff I never seen anything like it before. You can't barely talk to anyone unless it's their job to talk to you. They will sometimes flat ignore you. I go into stores people will run you out of the isles almost. People won't even smile at you or nothing.

We moved to a small town because we like small town life you know where your neighbors bring you a apple pie and everyone gets to know everyone. Moving from Georgia and Alabama this was small town life. But hell no people will avoid you at all costs. It took forever for people to start coming around to us and even when we tried to go meet people people seemed annoyed that we are bothering them. People seem to only talk to people they know which I guess is fine but they won't smile at you or anything. I mean people wave at me on the roads but that is about it. I thought maybe we just picked a bad town but it turns out their all like that round here. I have never met so many rude ass people in my life. There are still people who won't even talk to me though once people start to come around they are some of the nicest I ever met.

6 Illinois Illinois is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. It is the 5th most populous state and 25th largest state in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country.

Moved from NYC to the Illinois Subs and so far 4 years have been passed in this dump, with only work and no social life or friends... Why did I do that, absolutely no good reasons to live in Illinois. At least NYC doesn't sleep 24/7 and you can have great eats any time of the day, unbelievably good pizza, thin or deep dished, even the street vendors' food is delicious... Plenty of entertainment in NYC.., absolutely "0" in Illinois or Chicago, more expensive than NYC, no customer service, eateries are terrible, people are crazy, selfish, entitled, antisocial, judgemental, arrogant, rude, narcissistic, bigoted, opinionated, rural, ignorant, prejudiced, racist, obnoxious, and drive like they own the world, they never apologize or back off when wrong... Got forbid you get in an road altercation, they'll call the cops on you and the cops will actually show at your door to harass you for why you've given someone the finger. Illinoisans are sheltered cry babies who feel entitled to all, and ...more

Rude Rude Rude...Not Friendly, Cold, Bitter, Complex...and I can keep going on and on...its Difficult to really choose who is the rudest, The Chicago Snubs or the combination of Eastern Europeans and Chinese in the Suburbs...I never seen anything like it..! and the Driving?!...Stop Signs are posted for Decoration..! Discrimination, Segregation, Bad Politics, Crime...and CORRUPTION is top in the U.S and probably top 10 in the World...and the Thing they really really think is really good, The Food? We had to try 10 Chinese places to find a good one, Pizza is the most horrible I've ever eaten...Italian, same as Chinese, 10 places before finding a good one. And people, we have our own company, reason why are we here for a year...so we can go all over, no matter the $$$ or the Drive...Chicago and its Surroundings have to be the most Overrated and Over Famed in the U.S...in all senses of the word...most things are overrated, when you think you went to a great place, second time around...you ...more

Saying hello or Hi to people in Chicago /Suburbs is like talking to a wall...you open a door and do not expect a thanks...manners here have totally forgotten...like I said...Specially Eastern Europeans and Chinese...all you need to do is go to the Fresh Farm on wheeling and you will find out...and is not the People who work there, is all the Russians, Ukrainians, Polices, Chinese people that shop there...then you get to the Cashiers, all young Beautiful Girls and be careful, they might Bite you...! unreal...just brutal

People in Illinois are very judgemental, arrogant, and take pleasure in putting others down to make themselves feel better. Not to mention most of the schools have serious problems with kids being bullied. The school systems also lack the ability to put a stop to the bullying and harassment. Maybe if these kid's parents weren't cruel themselves and didn't poorly parent,they wouldn't repeat the cycle.

7 New York New York is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic Region. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.54 million residents in 2018, it is the fourth most populous state. In order to distinguish the state from the city with the same name, it is ...read more.

Just a big toilet bowl filled with rude people who want to fight. It's milder in the more expensive parts and quickly goes downhill once you leave those neighborhoods. Unsafe place, and a lot of people carry a major chip on their shoulder simply walking around in anticipation of a fight and a chance to take it out on someone who's not the same as them. Things can get really violent there pretty quick, especially on a subway or bus.

We've lived here two years now, and seriously are making plans to get out of here as soon as we can. We're in Upstate north of Albany. People are incredibly rude, completely stand offish, and not friendly at all. They are incredibly narrow minded and racist. Every day I cannot help wondering why we moved here in the first place. When you're a tourist everything looks great, but then after a while their true colors show. Plus it's super expensive to live here. Don't move here whatever you do. As soon as our son graduates next year we're out of here. Anywhere would be better than Upstate New York. And the worst drivers I've ever driven around with.

I live in New York state in the capital region area Schenectady Albany troy. I find a lot of people are shady as hell and do things behind your back. They will back stab you in a instant. Nice to your face but when your not looking they demean you. Highly judgmental control freaks, interfere with your happiness and well being, impatient, disrespectful, no boundaries, no respect for your space, consistently inconsistent, chaotic, high stress, not peaceful at all, no one minds their business here, romance is terrible can't ever find a loyal partner, Liars. They are quick to undermine you. Quick to take away your freedom.

Having lived in this hellhole run by Comrade Cuomo for most of my life I always felt this State was a real hole, with the rudest, most ignorant, entitled creatures on Earth. Then I was lucky enough to move to wonderful Tennessee for a year (some of most wonderful and friendly people on Earth) before having to return to New York for family reasons. I was only back one week and already knew it was time to return South. New York State deserves whatever social, economic and natural disasters that happen to it!

8 Utah Utah is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 31st-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States.

Originally from the East, not part of the Jesus jammy crew. Been here 16 years. As I read the comments, I realized I could have written most of them. The entitlement, the sweet facade (hypocrisy), passive-aggressive behavior, bad driving (allows the faithful to anonymously take out their aggression) - all absolutely true.

You'll have issues at work. Don't subject your kids to this. It's a beautiful place. Such sad people should have gone to West Texas or stopped in the Great Plains. You don't need any part of people who need supervision to be moral and ethical.

The politicians want to steal the Federal land, and put up fences and no trespassing signs. They never met a tax they didn't like, particularly taxes on non-LDS to subsidize large families. There is no urban planning, and the Wasatch Front has become nothing but sprawl and traffic jams. And it will get worse, because the state is run by greedy developers. Money is god here. There are better places, and we'll be ...more

I can't agree more with what everyone else has said. It is a state of hypocrites. As a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am ashamed at the behavior of so many members in this state which so obviously opposes our fundamental beliefs. People are awful, rude drivers that intentionally try to frustrate others on the road by tailgating and blocking others from turning. When you make eye contact with someone and smile, you will often get a scowl in return. Law enforcement officials are completely egotistic and cruel, as opposed to the usually well-meaning and affable ones that I have encountered in other states. I only ever visit this awful place to see family members.

The worst is being in customer service. No body likes working for free and that happens all the time as a server. No body wants to chase your kids around in a store while they act like terrorists destroying everything and running people over. If you come to visit Utah make sure you lower your deductible before you come. My first visit here resulted in an accident and the driver had no insurance. And don't mind the dirty looks you get if you don't have a kid in tow. If you don't have children you must be trying to take some one else's by the way they look at you. Utah is a beautiful place to live and I like it here but I have yet to actually talk to more than four neighbors and I have lived here for a year. Utah needs to change because as of right now it is the rudest state on the west coast and that is saying something because nobody likes a Californian.

Oh Utah, where do I begin. I am originally from the South where people overall are pretty kind and accepting. Since moving to Utah and living here for several years, I have become guarded, bitter, tough and overall depressed. The people here are not only unkind (whilst expecting you to be Mother Theresa) but they are insincere (putting on a front, not living their truth, backstabbing), superficial (pre-occupied with mommy makeovers, Botox, dieting, exercising too much, Nordstrom, and fancy cars). If you don't fit this mold, you really truly are treated as sub human. Hell I fit this mold as much as I can (having been called a southern belle- looking nice, affinity for fashion, makeup and hair) am a size 2 at 5 foot 7 but still made to feel completely insecure because maybe I'm not modest in my dress or my car is electric but not a Tesla etc... when I visit New York, Portland, Denver for work I actually feel and am treated like a person of value and worth. Ladies if you move here and ...more

9 Nevada Nevada is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern regions of the United States of America.

I moved here from New Jersey, which is higher on the list. I thought no matter where I went people would be nicer. Not here. I do believe a lot of the rudeness is driven by ignorant, privileged white people that have never left the state. Did I say ignorant, I meant stupid. There are car accidents every single day multiple times a day. They all just crash into each other. They complain about traffic cause of people moving here but if you ask them they have 6 children and 14 grand children and don't realize -those- are the people on the road. People have no drive to do anything but get pregnant at 18. Gaudy trucks everywhere, everyone has a jet ski and an RV and all the conversation is guns. The evidence of small 'members' is everywhere here. Dumb little prick middle American wastes.

People are rude and angry everywhere you go. This includes: road rage, people fighting/about to shoot each other over parking spaces, horrible customer service, horrible medical care, rude and incompetent doctors. People yelling at eachother in shopping lines. I have visited many states and Nevada is the absolute worst in regard to human kindness.

Northern NV, near Reno, be white or it could be very dangerous. It's still 1923 up there. Las Vegas "me like shiny things" don't expect anyone to be impressed that you can read...cash only. Tons of homeless. Hot as hell 9 mos straight, systemically racist, and an incredibly small town, for such a large area. Wouldn't want my dog to live there!

The people here are rude and have no respect for people privacy. SInce being here I caught my neighbor spying on me.

10 Michigan

If all the compliments in regards to Michigan are negative, the state must have a very low vibration. I don't think that people are being hypocritical by sharing their experiences. This is what this website is for, similar to Yelp. While you do have a good point about the UP being "nice, " that does not compensate for all the truthful comments about people not being kind. If 7 out 8 people say the people in Michigan are generally not nice, this evidence is factual. Also, bias may be used. Many of the commentators have traveled all over. Have you? You don't know if a state is truly rude unless you have something to compare it to. My advice to you is to get out of the UP, explore the world and come back to see if this hell on earth is really authentically nice. There is a difference between telling the truth and being rude. Thanks so much. Look forward to hearing about your travels. Looks like 90 % of people agree that Michigan is rude. This is a known fact. Basic thinking will not ...more

I've lived here my whole life, but I have traveled to Nebraska, Florida, Canada, China, Mexico, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, New York, and a few other places. Despite my really funky voice (a messed up blend between an accent and a lisp), I've only been "bullied" once; by a boy a year younger than me. He just did the stereotypical eye pulling Asian thing, and mimicked my voice in a falsetto. (Really though, his eyes were squintier than mine. At the time, I mentally compared them to pig eyes). I won't say we're the nicest state, but probably not deserving of No. 5. I apologize if I sound hypocritical or biased to you. I didn't mean to, I promise!

The proof is in the facts: Flint Water Crisis, No Emissions Testing, high alcoholism, and depression rate. Detroit is one of the biggest cities in the country and has the least amount of people per mile. Everyone left for a reason and they're still leaving. For years, the surveys have always voted Detroit as the rudest city. This is not new information. The place is culturally poor, destitute in etiquett and manner, and there is a huge disparity of incomes in the suburbs of Detroit. Eminem doesn't even like this place and is always angry when he performs in other states. He carries the anger with him. The movie, 'The Five-Year Engagement depicts the helplessness and boredom and lack or friendliness and evolution amongst the provincials here. They ended up back in California for a reason. Many intelligent people know to never visit here unless they absolutely have to.

Whine, whine, whine is all these people do.
Michiganders are the lowest form of humans on earth. Grown men pick on women. Grown women pick on other people's babies. As for the UP, UP yours! You overly proud rednecks with no etiquette! Whine some more please and drink some more wine. There are about 20% of people that are trying to make this sorry excuse for a state a better place, but 80% have no manners and to desire to evolve! There is saying that Michigan does not belong in the US. It really is not connected to the heart of the land. It's dysfunctional and disconnected. Stay away from this northern Redneck Hillbilly place. People don't talk to you here unless they want something from you. It is no wonder everyone flees out of this piss poor contaminated crappy garage can.

The Contenders
11 Texas Texas is a state in the Southern USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

Most everything said here is untrue but the idea that Texas is downright rude is 100% accurate. I also tend to agree that it's the transplants mostly and not the natives. I don't think racism is a problem. Not among Whites anyhow. Many of the Mexicans think they're on a crusade to reclaim the American Southwest (Aztlan) and the Blacks here absolutely hate White people. The drivers are terrible, more so than other states. But the people are just rude and aggressive often for no reason at all. Lots of unhappy people. Property is cheap.

The vast majority of people in central Texas take absolutely no concern for how how their decisions will affect others. It's common practice for a group of Texans to carry on a conversation in the doorway of a grocery store. No one here is aware of his or her surroundings. People driving around at night or in the rain with their headlights off, driving toward oncoming traffic with high beams on, etc. Just completely unconcerned for the well-being of other people.

I've been here for seven years, when you find nice people trust me they are very nice. But unfortunately most of the people are rude, arrogant, no manners, no courtesy. They want to look good to the world but here, the discrimination, racism and other things I've never seen so high in other places you will se the then here. Good luck to the newcomers.

The most rudest people you can ever meet. Lived here my whole life I want to move! it's like living in hell
Here and the bullies make your life a living hell. And people do not have proper grammar. Also Low
Income you won't get paid anything. I suggest you
Move somewhere else. Plus it's boring and nothing to do here.

12 Connecticut

It's true that there a lot of people with a horrible attitude here. I have lived in CT for 41 years and I am a general contractor so I travel and work with many different people. The pan handle is horrible and right up the middle isn't much better. I read an article once that said New Haven is one of the worst cities in the country and that is 100% true. But the shoreline north of the Haven's is actually very nice so is the western side. I can also honestly say from experience New York and New Jersey should top this list. Followed close by Mass.

I agree 100 percent. I lived there 9 years. For Grad school I got into Yale, Harvard and University of Chicago. No more for me and CT people are the same. There I dated a girl who before me and after me was the girlfriend of a rock star with a #1 hit and an album that went platinum. A household name at one time. She was hot for sure but the bile was alway right underneath her perfect tan, read to come out. I left her and the rude people.

I was born in Ct but moved away when I went to college. I had always loved the state and was happy living there as a child. I don't know if the state has actually changed since then or I see it differently now that I have moved back. The people are cold, rude and very unfriendly. They are also demanding and disrespectful. I really don't like this state anymore and am in the process of moving. And I can't wait to leave!

Sense of entitlement -- always angry -- elitist -- rude -- quick to curse -- intolerant -- sharp, cutting accent -- inability to be graceful -- hurried -- stressed -- overwhelmed -- petty. Have I missed anything? How I would love to be wrong! How I would love to say that people here are warm and inviting. But it would be a lie. I almost feel they're a little proud of their obnoxiousness.

13 California California is a state in the Southwestern United States. With 39.6 million residents across a total area of about 163,696 square miles (423,970 square kilometers), California is the most populous U.S. state and the third-largest by area. The state capital is Sacramento, and the largest city is Los Angeles. ...read more.

The concentration of rude people goes up exponentially as you go South in CA. Most rude Californians stereotypes are true as far as Southern California is concerned. Basically, it's a huge toilet that won't flush, full of people who're casually rude to everyone, including on the roads. It's so bad there that rudeness is a part of local culture that's not even considered abnormal, like in New York/NJ sort of. I lived all over CA and avoid SoCal at all costs, it's simply not safe there because of all the crazy, angry and violent people. It gets a lot better in the North (except in BayArea which is the same as SoCal at this point), but there're quite a few rude uncouth yokels/hicks in the NorCal hills, who have no manners and are very hateful, so I'd recommend being careful there and just avoiding the locals.

I have experiences in both Southern and Northern California. I met a lot of people with an attitude in both areas. Their attitude problem seems to come from having globalist mindset. Many people living in California, whether they are white Americans, black Americans, colored immigrants, or foreigners, are globalist-minded. When people have globalist mindset, they tend to think that everybody else is stupid or inferior, which makes them arrogant and rude. I perceived this type of unpleasant attitude from all kinds of people while I was in California. People are easygoing on the surface but are not very kind or respectful to other people nearby. Some immigrants and foreigners are not helping or getting along with each other and act as white wannabes instead. They became the a**-kissers or the puppets of the globalist elites and are being cold and traitorous to their own people. It's really too bad because there are a lot of beautiful sceneries, nice weather, and good food in California, ...more

Coming from the bay area, everyone thinks they have it harder than everyone else does. Everyone's arrogant and selfish attitude makes me so angry, I am surprised when I find a (normal) person living around here with a decent mindset. Not to add everyone on their phones while driving and not using their blinkers *cough cough* San Jose, almost been in so many accidents because everyone feels like they own the road. I am going to miss the beautiful scenery and food when I leave here, but not the people.

I have lived in Japan, Kentucky and Michigan prior to moving to California. Despite having spent only 2 years as opposed to the at least 5 years in each of the other places I've lived in, the numbers of rude people I've encountered here far exceeded the ones I've encountered in all the other places added up. Not just the numbers, but the extend of rudeness. It is unbelievable why some people choose to be this rude. I can't wait to get out of here.

14 Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.

I was outcast there too, and have no idea why. These were other Whites doing this, and I'm not gay or anything either. If they decide that you don't fit in, they will be very rude to you and ruin your existence so much that you feel that you've been banished from there.
I was only 5 when my parents moved us there for their jobs, and I was tormented from then until 17, when I got the hell away from those hostile scornful narrow minded rednecks and snobs. Malicious lies about me persisted, but if only I knew the source could I have sued for slander.
I don't miss the ice on the ground in winter, as I took a few tumbles.
Spring is lovely there, and the summer felt good, especially at night. Those were the only things I left behind. Too bad about the people! I could never fix that. And good thing I never tried to drive there.

Once I got far away from MD, I found many places where the people were tolerant, accepting and even cordial, some even friendly and appreciative. Wild ...more

Washington isn't a bad place. You went to Seattle. I just want to let you know that you went to Seattle. We're 100% different! Auburn is awesome, but we're not perfect. I agree that we're bad in some cases. Apparently, a middle school principal from a school I used to go to bullied a teacher and she tried to kill herself. Then, I heard (about the same principal) that he had sexual relations with a teacher. Also, I'm still not allowed to walk 2 blocks by myself because of all of these sexual predators. Don't read the beggining of this paragraph, Washington is terrible.

Horrible place to live. Grew up there and was bullied terrible. I'm so glad I don't live there anymore. I've heard now its nothing but crime and drugs. Growing up there was very hard. I even got picked at the grocery store. I have very pale skin. Everyone in maryland is obsessed with tanning or spray tan so if your pale they make fun of you or stare at you like your a alien or something. I live in florida now. The people are nicer but a lot of stupid people and bad drivers, but Maryland has to be the worse place I've ever lived.

Siiiiiiiigh. I made the mistake of moving here after living in the two of the nicest places (Northwest and South). People here are rude on the road, which sucks because everyone is crammed on the roads two plus hours every day. People are rude in person, they stare, they gossip loudly. Nobody can handle anyone a little bit different than them, which is a shame, as there are so many different kinds of people here. I'm sick of Maryland, it's beautiful, but they can keep it. I hope everyone here gets eaten by ticks.

15 Pennsylvania Pennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

It's amazing how different attitudes are when you cross the Mason-Dixon Line. Sure, Maryland has its tools, but they at least have the courtesy to be nice to your face. Everyone in southern PA walks around like they have a stick shoved 3 feet inside them. Anything that is different from how they have done things for the past 200 years is shunned and ostracized. Most stubborn S.O.B.s in the country. They're about as welcoming to outsiders as the French.

The bright spot of this state is (believe it or not) Pittsburgh. I've been there a few times and people were always very nice to me and all others. Although they are completely conceited when it comes to their sports, outside of the arenas I'd say Pitt is among the nicest cities in the country in terms of friendliness.

Philly gets a bad rap too. They're outrageously stupid, but I wouldn't consider them mean unless sports are involved. Word is they've been a bit nicer since the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

Also, plenty ...more

I'm from Philadelphia, and my parents don't live together, so my mom (who's not really from PA, she grew up in NJ but was born in Brooklyn because my grandparents used to live there. I'd really rather be there.) lives a suburb town right outside of Philadelphia, and my dad lives in the city. Let me tell you, most people in that town (the suburban town) are rich, and I know this from going to school with their kids, most are just awful people. I want to make more friends, but I don't go out of my circle of friends at all because nobody else is really that nice. Most people have their little clique, which makes them unkind when other people try to join (I have a very good example of that and how PA people are rude, but that's a really long story). Want a place with all, not just some, nice, kind people? Well, get the hell out of here.

I can't speak for Pittsburgh or Philadelphia. Because those places are vastly different than the interior of PA. Especially central PA. People here do not welcome new people, ideas, or ways of thinking. People here are deeply set in their ways and don't like anything that is even thinking about the outside world.

PA Sucks - people are rude and don't have time for anyone but themselves. They are very selfish - state takes all your money in property tax - local tax - sales tax, etc... and still cannot balance a billion dollar budget. Corruption at its finest here. Lancaster County PA

16 Indiana

I am from the grand "Northern California" 43 years born and raised. Country livin...UNTIL...movie stars moved in. Followed were 6, 7 story high rises where I usta go catch frogs an pull off the legs of pollywogs. Riding my bike ALL overy town, gotta be in before the stree lights came on. As soon as the land was cluttered and started to look like LA. I was heartbroken. So I packed up and moved to Indiana. Talk about going from the frying pan to the fire. It is SO BEAUTIFUL here. Why is everyone so angry? Oh, I didn't realize that "The Good Ole Boys" was a real thing. Talk about straight up ignorant and STUPID. Ya, it still is slander. It's also bullies who grew up to just bully women. It's cool. Lawyers are catching on finally out here.

Moved out of state in 05 had to come back for work and education in 2010. Spent seven years trying to complete college due to the very poor attitudes towards employees improving themselves. I can say Central Indiana has been a poor decision in moving here. In the 33 years I lived here, Michigan/Indian borderline has been the most friendly and out-going part of this state.

I am from Indiana but currently living in Jersey. I can't wait to get back to Indiana, because the people on the East Coast are so rude, snobby and unkind. Maybe the people who think Hoosiers are rude is because, they live in one of the snobby cities in Indiana, such as Carmel, Fishers, Avon and a few other ones. The people who live in these cities are very rude. For the most part, Hoosiers are very kind and respectful.

Moved to Indiana from out of state, that was our mistake. Hoosiers are the least friendly people, I mean if you are from the South, or anywhere that people can look you in the eye, do not even drive through this state. Horrible, rude, and ugly scenery unless you are close to Lake Michigan or in Brown County.

17 Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

Wisconsin has the most terrible, mean, bullying, hostile, and just pure evil people I have ever met! Road rage every day, and just awful. I am embarrassed to say this was my home state. I am moving and never coming back. I have traveled and lived many places and Wisconsin is the most evil.

Rudest people. Worst drivers. Very dumb. don't walk at night because you may get killed by the many drunk drivers. Nothing is good about Wisconsin. All their food sucks. Even for a cheese state... they can't even make a decent pizza

As a person from Wisconsin I can safely we are only friendly to people who are from outside of Wisconsin,Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan. We hate each other and tend to swear at other people driving and accusing them of being FIBS ( Illinois Bastards)

I agree. Who put this here? Have you ever been in Wisconsin? One of the nicest states I've lived in. People are accommodating, kind, friendly, I could go on.

18 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

Been here 15 years lived in the Camden Arkansas area for all 15 years moved here from Wisconsin. I can tell you the people in Arkansas are the rudest people I have ever seen they are also the stupidest people on this earth. Also think 80 percent of the people here are druggies or have a drinking problem. This state is garbage just garbage

If you're not from here, they'll make sure you know you're not one of them and many times, not welcome.

If you look different in Arkansas, there is no such thing as "southern hospitality".

Pretty and pretty redneck.

19 Rhode Island Rhode Island, officially the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is a state in the New England region of the United States.

Rhode Island has really bad drivers, be careful driving in Providence because most of the bad drivers live there. Traffic is bad in the city of Providence, but everywhere else is fine (by the way, traffic is worse in the morning around 7 AM - 11 AM and 2 PM - 7 PM) The most annoying part of Rhode Island is the crappy roads, it's the worst in the country which is sad for Rhode Island's reputation.

It's funny because we are rude! But who cares? We can all agree the New Yorkers are the rudest.

20 Arizona Arizona is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states.

For those who voted for New York, You're only thinking of the stereotypes, I lived in both New York and Arizona. And I have to say, People from Arizona are A LOT more rude than in New York, even kids at my schools were extremely rude as well.

I have traveled to almost every state in America. The nastiest people I have ever met live in Arizona!

I've lived in Az my whole life and yes by far the worst place ever. People are full of themselves and think they are Gods.Complete A-holes everywhere in this state.

I went to vacation in Arizona once and it was the baddest experience I ever had going on vacation. The people there were o rude and disrespectful I never wanna go there again. And I suggest you don't go either.

21 Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.

I lived there and the level of hatred towards immigrants is astounding. While people may appear nice and reserved on the outside, at first, I had learned that it's only the fascade and what lies beneath is violent hate. I had been physically assaulted simply because I'm an immigrant from Europe, my college mates who were immigrants from various countries were chased by a big group neo-Nazis with chains while trying to walk to college, multiple immigrants working at the gas station nearby were shot dead, my neighbor from Asia had his car pelted with rocks just driving through a neighborhood. Both local whites and blacks did these things. People don't show you their hatred upfront but suddenly get violent there, it appears they're just waiting for a convenient moment. I was told even if you're an American born and bred 2 hours away you'd never been accepted there.

I tend to agree with all of you. For me, I'm basically stuck here for the rest of my life! In ALABAMA, we the following
1. People that act like snakes
2. Too many people who don't get a lot of fitness
3. Rude people
4. People who try to find SOMETHING about you wrong
5. Busybodies
6. ROLL TIDE FANS(at least some of them)
Alabama has some(in my opinion) pretty mountains, but the rudest people since New Jersey and connecticut people.

Moved to Alabama at 6 yo. 42 years later, still feel out of place. Females are insecure and hateful. Driving on the interstates is like going to war each day. Racism by most all brought up here. It's a hell hole you don't want to get stuck in.

I've been to some rude places but there are no redeemable qualities for Alabama. All people do is stick their nose in your business and constantly shove religion down your throat. Terrible drivers too and no one trusts outsiders

22 South Carolina South Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state is bordered to the north by North Carolina, to the south and west by Georgia across the Savannah River, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.

The only reason SC is listed so high is because it is full of people who have moved here from Ohio, and they are PROUD to be from Ohio. There are "I heart SC" stickers with the heart replaced by the state of Ohio, and stickers that say "Ohio" with the "I" replaced by a palmetto tree. It seems like 1 out of every 5 cars has an Ohio license plate. Hence, the rudeness.

But those of us who have been here for generations are actually quite nice.

Most are hypocritical--say they against divorce, drinking, premarital sex, inequality, drugs but reality is just the opposite. The Southern Baptists lead the pack in this regard. They elect incompetents, bozos and liars: Mark Sanford, Henry McMaster. Lindsey Graham, Tim Scott, Tom Rice, McElvaney, Nicki Haley. They are so corrupt they don't a fact or the truth if it hit therm in the balls

All rude, selfish people. Terrible driving and road rage. I moved from PA to here. My husband is from the Midwest. We both have never encountered such rude people up north. No southern charm here. Any of it is fake

You haven't been here, right? This is a friendly state. They have a nice southern accent and lots of golf carts, everyone minds being talked to, a rather quiet state

23 North Carolina North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Ok, stop. No offense, but I personally think it's ridiculous to judge a state based on SOME people. There are so many great people in North Carolina! And yeah, obviously there are rude people as well. There are rude people in every state. I don't understand what people mean when they say it's a backstabbing state. That really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I have lived in NC for 11 years now, and it's no more "backstabbing" than any other state.

North Carolina a backstabbing state. Tries to act nice but talks so bad and lies on you here. Their pride or ego justifies all their wrong. It's a place where what they do is right, but if you do what they just done it's wrong.

The driving is usually a nightmare. People are backstabbing but then can't back anything up. They think "being nice" is a cover for trying to manipulate others. They'll lie and justify it to themselves so it's not on their consciences. It's hilarious when you catch someone doing something wrong to you, they can never handle the heat.

There are good and bad people. The bad ones are aggressive and speed like devil on the roads like their lives is ending soon. Very unconsidered to others. Bad behavior on roads is typical here.

24 Mississippi Mississippi is a southern U.S. state with the Mississippi River to its west, the state of Alabama to its east, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

This state is full of racists who support Hitler and Stalin.

Racist, hostile to outsiders and just mean.

My votes are based on my past travels.

25 Tennessee Tennessee is a state located in the southeastern United States. Tennessee is the 36th largest and the 17th most populous of the 50 United States.

Tennessee should be ranked number 1 on this list of rudess states simply because everybody in this state has a nasty attitude. Especially in Nashville Definitely! Without a shadow of a doubt!

I have lived in 3 different regions in middle to east TN over the past 10 years and in all 3 places, I find most of the people to be viscerally rude. My most recent move was to Cookeville, where I bought a farm a year ago and hoped to finally set some roots and raise my kids. Less than a year later, I'm already looking to leave the state entirely. Folks throw trash in my yard on a regular basis, are generally passive aggressive, and lack any empathy. Good ole boys drop 80% of their income on booze and fuel and spend the whole weekend hot rodding while drunk well into the early morning hours (police - or "the law" - do nothing). The redneck pansies always have a friend riding shotgun so they have someone to back them up when they inevitably initiate an unnecessary conflict with random strangers. I travel a lot for a living and can say - although not as in your face as much as a place like Cambridge, MA - folks from TN should absolutely rank near the top of the most unfriendly states.

I live in East Tennessee and the people are nice. I lived in CT, MA and most of NorthEast is very rude people. I lived in China where racism and discrimination against nonChinese is open and patriotic and receives full support from society. Same with Koreans. Both Koreans and Chinese look down on outsiders and think they are a Master Race, same as Nazis. When those CN KO races move somewhere else they bring their racism. When I moved to E Tennessee I thought people here are so nice. The best looking white people I ever saw were in USA NorthEast but they are so rude to each other that there is an informal industry of dating services to help these jerks do the simplest thing: say hi. How hard can that be? For them, near impossible. They get lonely and more rude.

I grew up here. The schools are terrible. Kids just label other kids as the so called weird kids. And then the teachers get in on it. Every teacher just insults the so called weird kids and it's disgusting. In other words, the teachers like to get involved with student drama. I'm now in Utah and moving here was the best decision we've ever made.
