A nice place to live? South Carolina. A rude place to live? Ohio. Marchex, an advertising technology company, conducted a survey of over 1/2 million phone calls to various customer service numbers. Highlights and the lows:
South Carolina is #1 in courtesy (lots of "Thank you" and "Please")
Ohio is #1 in "Most Likely to Curse" AND #5 in "Least Courteous"
My unscientific BEST and WORST places to live based upon my analysis of this study:
BEST: South Carolina
Other nice places: Arizona, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia.
Other crude places: New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Tennnessee
