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.

As a resident of Florida for 28 years, all these comments are true. If you are not a complete dysfunctional moron like them you will not fit in and will be severly discriminated against, especially in the work place. The people are nice to your face but talk behind your back because of their pathetic need to feel better about their decreasing self-esteem. I cannot wait to leave and I pray bad things happen to the bad people in this state (which is most)
There are very few good people left in Florida.

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.

I have lived in many States-North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Maryland, Florida, and Georgia. I have never seen anything like Ohio-Ohioans are so backwards and behind the times, they think that it is cool to be rude and nasty-they pride themselves on who can be the rudest- Where as states like New York and Florida know that they are being rude but they know that it is not cool and the thing to do! Ohio think that it is very cool and hip to be rude, they are the most backward people in America and they are very poor!

Even though I haven't been to a single state in the USA, since you guys are voting for it and it is at the top, I think that Ohio is going to be the worst state if I was going to go and visit it. It may have so many rude, critical and racist people and it could possibly be a dangerous state as well. It may also be slightly popular. Not as popular as New York, California and Florida of course but it could be slightly popular.

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.

Last summer I went walking in downtown Newark and I accidentally bumped into a young woman. I apologized but she called me a mother effer and to go jump into a sewer. Rude narcissistic people in this state!

HEY HOW DARE YOU! Well actually...sorry New Jersey I kinda gotta agree...people driving are very rude at times and I was at this gas station and this woman looked grumpy AND DIDn't EVEN NOTICE MY DOG! (Who was wagging and drooling XD) so um...ya...sorry New Jersey. But I don’t think New Jersey should be this high up maybe’s not that bad and I should no I live there!

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.

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.

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.

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

Awful and very nasty people in Florida. With the lack of education, low wages, months of unbearable heat and humidity, the bugs etc. It's easy to understand why everyone is so miserable. I can't imagine why anyone would want to live in this horrible state.

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.

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.

Just look at Massachusetts road signs. They're hilarious. They say "Wicked Stawm Comin", Turn Awf Ya Blinkah.", "Blizzahd Approachin", and much more.

I've lived here less than one year, and previously spent many years as a resident of New Hampshire often having to travel to Massachusetts for business purposes. Before living in New England, I was raised in the Midwest and spent time living down south as well. Based on my experience in many states of the country, I can honestly say this is the most inconsiderate, rude, careless, and selfish state! It's one thing to deal with harassment and a rush after work driving on the highways, but to have compete disregard for one's safety when he or she is unwilling to speed at 80 mph during a dangerous blizzard and swerve around turning cars immediately is uncalled for! My neighbors here have been a constant source of frustration and disappointment. It seems all children have the upper hand and can do no wrong, and forget about manners let alone an apology after being harassed and having your property destroyed and trespasses upon multiple times a day! I've come to accept the coldness and ...more

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.

The rising noise makes all people here become cranky. My first impression about this state is totally different than what it is now. I would leave soon.

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.

Missouri is a very distinct rudeness. You can tell people don't like you. I have been to Missouri a number of times for work and just for fun and I can say even when we first got to the airport in Kansas City people were rude. People if you get too close will mumble under their breath or say something snarky. Your sure at one point to have someone say something to you. St. Louis is also pretty bad people won't even look at you half the time and people dont talk to people. You will see sometimes people part ways just to avoid you. In other states people will talk to you or at the very least ignore you but Missourians are snobby and don't like people they don't know around them or bothering them. I went to a Taco Johns just north of Kansas City and people there where so rude. I sat down with my food to have people at the table in front of me continually make faces at me. I really like to get to know new people but there is not much of that in Missouri. I have also been southern Missouri ...more

I am was not going to do Missouri but I noticed it got a lot of hate. Here goes my take it’s pretty split really there are many very nice people here and then there are another half that are stand offish and don’t like to talk much. Also, people seeming to be standoffish is sometimes them trying to be courteous and not be in your way. Though many people her there will give hateful looks, look at you funny, yell at you, huff and puff (as a resident it happens to me all the time) their not ALL like this. I have been to Branson a few times and yes people are right about it being the worst however just ignore the rude people and you might be surprised that there are plenty of people who will talk to you. Just not everyone

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.

Don’t get me wrong the whole state is rude but the southwestern part is the worst. People in Branson and Lake Ozarks think this is their town and tourists are a nuisance. People go out of their way to avoid you. Public freak outs like you see on YouTube you would be shocked at how many times you see something like that play out. People make dirty looks at you. I was eating at Paula Deans restaurant in Branson with some friends and family and we sat by another table just because we liked the location. This lady made faces the entire time we where eating and naturally I made faces back and she got a manager and the manager made us move. We tried to explain but the manager gave us some BS and we moved. She still made faces and we talked to the a manger and she said she would adress it and she made faces until eventually she got finished eating and they left.

6 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 more.

We moved here almost 11 years ago due to it being my spouse's assigned military duty station. Although the majority of people here are super standoffish and rude ( can't seem to ever admit when they have made a mistake but make a huge display and DEMAND an apology if they feel you have wronged them in some way), typically don't hold doors open for strangers, and typically the residents where I'm at have zero patience when driving, and feel the need to honk even if they are the ones blatantly in the wrong as per traffic rules. There's an entitled and superior attitude most people have here. We have been referred to as "those NAVY people" in a derogatory way. Seems to be a popular thing to take passive jabs at people. Our postal lady indeed went postal on me- my spouse was deployed and apparently I missed paying the annual fee by a week. Instead of simply returning the mail to sender or charging me the late fee, she felt the need to literally YELL at me in a lobby full of customers. I ...more

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.

Most of them are friedly and helpful but then theirs others who are incredibly narcissistic and douche. Lots of crooks in the city

I have been here six months and unfortunately is not the best of experiences. There are rude people everywhere in the country. I was hoping the NY reputation was wrong. My interactions to my dismay for the most part are not positive. The opinion I formed is New Yorkers are quick with the temper warranted or not. Lack of humility and respect for others space. But I have met some very nice people and am grateful for that. I was born down south and it is definitely an oppositional environment.

7 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.

It's the effen Mexican women who think they are all that when they are your boss. If, I were Thump I would get rid of the illegal welfare Mexicans in America and I would get them out of their safe havens the city/villages and cities hide these arrogant pricks. Sadly, my cousin's are married to Mexican women because they told me "they are a good lay! " So, is a meth user in Cicero!

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

So rude to immigrants. Many people give my mom glares and be extremely rude to her just because she has an accent. by the way we’re from Poland. But I can’t speak for all of Chicago.

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.

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.

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.

People here are so rude in every possible way. People actually go out of their way to be rude one the road. They speed up to block you when they see blinkers or notice you're trying to change lanes. They cut you off all the time and I have to slam on my breaks quite often. Forget stop signs, people are selfish and refuse to wait, they think they're too important. People go or of their way to be rude. I hear a lot of times "Utah people are rude on the road but are nice people". That's the biggest load of crap I hear. If people are going out of their way to be rude on the road, that means they consciously want to be rude, nice people don't do that.

They STARE ALL THE TIME and gossip about everyone. You're being watched intensely. They get upset if you stare back. They want to see if you're Mormon, if you don't dress like them, they tell each other if you're not Mormon. Their gossiping is so loud. The neighborhoods know each other well because they all go to the same ...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.

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 ...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 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

Ah Michigan... I've seen comments about the water crisis, emissions testing and Detroit. What in the hell does that have to do with being rude? Racist? There are racists everywhere, but I feel the Michigan is truly a diverse state. I'm a white dude and I worked in inner city Flint. People there treated me the same as anywhere else. What are you doing on my property was the question I always got. After they realize who I was and what I was doing it was hard to get away. No we don't like outsiders. That's true. But it's a hard working gritty state. And that's something almost all of us recognize amongst each other. Things suck, but at least we aren't ohio

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

Below is an Indiana response, but this is the type of post someone from Michigan would do, insult a school aged child, without probing deeper into the issue. Passive Aggressive Bullying. Maybe the solution would be to contact his parents? Especially putting his name on the internet. From where I come from, that is called Slander. I am so proud to not be from this state!

"Well, I live here and everyone I know is very kind, selfless, and sharing, except a couple people who do not follow school directions, because I am a teacher there. All of my students except a boy named Evan are very behaved and kind! "

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.

The Contenders

11 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. more.

I wouldn't say it's the worst, but their are so many reckless drivers who do whatever they want. As long as I'm in California, I am not going to drive, even when I get my driver's licence (I'm 16), because I have to worry about some jerks swerving in front of me. Every day, I feel like a car crash is imminent, my mom has smashed the breaks countless times, because someone either swerved in front of her or stomped their breaks as well.

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.

California is such a beautiful place, it's just the people here SUCK. Almost everyone acts like they are the boss. (they kind of act like the head of the Karen bookclub) Someone will scream at you just for being a little silly in public, and people are on their phone ALL THE TIME. I'm so upset that such a beautiful place is wasted on these jerks.

12 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.

Texans hate outsiders. Not only are they ignorant of the world outside Texas, they hate everyone from other states or other countries. Now, it's not impossible for an "outsider" to have a job in Texas, but native Texans are, in reality, unwelcoming.

I've lived here for almost my entire life and I've noticed a huge change in the last decade (and it's definitely not for the better) awful drivers and a widespread sense of narcissism (mixed in with a dense population) are detrimental in the main cities here

13 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.

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.

I've worked various technical support jobs that require me to speak with people all over the country. I know that any time I get a call from the 860 area code I am in for a very unpleasant conversation with a very abusive, entitled person who just can't wait to curse me out and put words in my mouth.

We are jam-packed with 'entitled' people. Various parts of the world owe the residents a living from all parts of the human spectrum. AND they can't drive here either. Apparently Red Traffic Lights mean "see how fast you can drive under the red light" because I have to go do something important.

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

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.

In southwestern pa.washington county I live for 50 years, Since my dad passed away in 1996 the close family has cracked up to everybody for them selves.Back in 96 my well to do mom got real funny toward me and had papers served me to stay away and from what I gather my son (her grandson) and his aunt is only in her will,my wonderful rich cousin (my moms nephew) the chiropractor told me don't come back for adjustments any more even though he adjusts my mom and my 28 year old sons back for free, none of my moms family wants any contact with me, most of my dads side past a away,uh, when I got my divorce my attorney never represented me and gave my wife mostly everything and really wiped my out into financial holocaust,uh, all the production jobs really really suck here really really bad with lying greedy arrogant don't care about employees owners, Ha ha lol shake my head,I recommend ya don't come here if ya don't have to,invest your time wisely some where else, unless I create money I'm ...more

I went to a play and all of the parents were super rude. their baby kicked me and the mom just laughed and got in front of our family when we were waiting in line.

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.

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

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.

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.

I've moved to Baltimore 2 months ago for a new job. I live in Howard county, one of the so-called "nicer" areas. I can tell you that MD sucks in so many ways! Most annoyingly, people are unapologetically rude and arrogant. They very clearly show it to your face that they don't care about you at all. I'm so frustrated and let down by people attitude here that I've decided to apply for a new job ONLY two months in my current new job! Screw MD!

16 Indiana

I am from the grand "Northern California" 43 years born and raised. Country 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.

Indiana isn't that bad to be honest. Sure some of the people can be pretentions, but what state doesn't have pretentious and bad people in it?

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.

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

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)

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

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.

They are the nicest your face!

18 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.

Massachusetts > Rhode Island


19 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.

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.

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!

20 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 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.

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

Rude people very inconsiderate and horrible drivers no such thing as southern hospitality it is a lie. Cannot wait to leave this state as soon as possible.

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.

21 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.

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

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.

Majority of people here are racist an if their not racist their really stuck up I lived here for a couple years before moving an I’m so glad I did

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

22 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.

Most people here are ok lol

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.

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.

I read about other states here about rudeness. I think all those jerks moved to NC (Triangle area). Very rude drivers here and there. I love NC and I can tell the life changed a lot here. It was peaceful and know is not anymore.

I do not know if the EXTREMELY rude people I meet everyday here are from somewhere else...but they are here in NC. Bad drivers, impatient customers here and there...crazy thing to see...

24 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.

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.

I live in Sparta, which is in Middle Tennessee, and the people here are the rudest of anywhere I've been...Cold blooded, absolutely no Christian values here, even the children are bad people here.

I live in Sparta, which is in Middle Tennessee, and the people here are the rudest of any place I have ever been in. Cold-blooded people are here, no Christian values whatsoever

25 Maine

Maine is disgusting. The people are just so toxic. What people think of as that weirdo "Mainah" hillbilly thing---is actually personality disorder. The people are just so geographically isolated, white, badly educated, afraid of anything different. My family is from Maine and I really really hated living there. So much nasty nasty abuse of children, animals, the environment, drugs, bad traditions, bad culture, bad ways of interfacing with the world at large. Steven King's stories like It and Castle Rock pretty much describe living in Maine, he just turned the bad guys into supernatural monsters...when in Maine, their your neighbors and extended family FOR REAL. Maine has the most widespead mentally unwell/ personality disordered population I've encountered anywhere. It's just so homogeneous in Maine. It makes the state a terrible place to live or try to do business/ work. People who just vacation/ visit can maintain enough distance not really know or interact with locals enough to get ...more

Very judgmental people, not welcoming to outsiders, they think that their state is the best in the US, well I have been to all 50 and it is in the top 5 worst states. The people are not willing to try new things, for example if a new bridge, or new building goes up everyone is against it. They DO NOT accept change. Also I find it odd that they have a very gross stereotype, such as the accent, lack of education, all country hicks, what pissed me off when I lived there is that the residents are okay with that stereotype and tend to mock it because the think it's "cool", even if that's not them. God forbid there be change in this state or everyone will freak out. I lived there for 18 years and am now happily from Arizona. Such a waste of a state

I agree about Maine. They are too blunt and don't really realize they're being rude. I went to a department store with my best friend and this young woman from Maine. My friend isn't thin exactly and the young woman from Maine said " Fat makes you look older than you are by 20 years, why not get a bathing suit to cover up the fat" My friend didn't say anything till the young woman was gone but she told me afterwards how deeply hurt her feelings were, she said the comment made her feel like nothing. I told her I agreed with her and that this person from Maine had no tact at all. My friend and I are both from California, and we were raised to be careful with people's feelings. I felt the girl didn't like my friend and this was a jab. The other troubling thing was the young woman's lack of personality, I would say she was robotic.

I live in Northern Maine and the people are actually very kind. People hold doors for other people, and I could greet a random person and they'll respond. The only thing is, the plow trucks suck! So you've just shoveled snow, the plow truck comes and just leaves MORE snow to shovel right after.
Over all, Maine has nice people but one of the worst drivers I've seen.
