US States Ranked by How Polite They Are

https://www.freshbooks.com/press/da...-is-most-polite

Where do the most polite business owners in America live? New research from FreshBooks reveals Oklahoma, Alabama and Ohio have the most polite small business owners in the country. FreshBooks recently analyzed customer data to uncover which small business owners (by state) are the most likely to use please or thank you on their invoices.

People often visited out of the country and talked about Oklahomans being "quite hospitable and kind" but I never know this was quantified.

Interesting. Do you have anecdotal evidence to support some of this list?

"Owners of small businesses who have "please" and "thank you" on their invoices" is a very specific set of qualifiers. Interesting little aggregate.

That's quite specific. That's why I want to read anecdotes.

Missouri has a pretty big spectrum obviously from St louis, KC, Springfield area.

That said SW MO in the Springfield area is very polite and courteous, not so much in St Louis, KC is ok.

Yeah I edited.

I wonder how big the sample size was for each state.

I don't think it matters much as it's one of those snackable sidenote facts, it's kinda neat though.

I edited back at you. Now it reads almost okay except for the text we quoted of each others.

Oh, forgot: thank you.

Clearly done by a biased Oklahomo, just look at the percentage point gap between just 1st and 2nd place and then it's all down hill from there.

From my experience, the most polite and gregarious people are from Oklahoma. I can talk to anyone and we act like pals...mostly.


Next up would be people from NYC. Though there is a larger...grumpiness factor going on with them. But you can chat up almost anyone in NYC.


Not so much anywhere else except for some parts in CA. In some parts, people are very friendly. In others, not so much. Hollister, Gilroy, and San Jose areas: quite friendly. San Fran: mostly assholes. Oakland: mosty assholes. LA and LA greater area, mix of huge assholes and nice people.


This is just my experience.


Texas people are just slightly less friendly versions of Oakies.


People from Alabama, especially the older women, are incredibly hospitable. They will feed the hell out of you (which makes you ready for church...damn good pun) for no damn reason, if you're polite to them.


People from Wymoning? No so friendly. But will hold a conversation.


I could go down the list. That would take forever. But I want more anecdotes like these.

It was done by Canadians.



Oklahoma just...doesn't have much to offer except politeness, waning oil industry, and football.

It was 99% joking.

Do wonder if state population size is a factor, with OK being an outlier due having around 3-4mil, which would put it around the middle-range.

Connecticut has similar population size.


Some of the rudest pieces of shit I've ever known come from that state.

The SF/Bay Area has a huge amount of Connecticut transplants.

Then that would explain my anecdotal experience about all the assholes there.

Shit I would have thought that Alabama would be down at the phucking bottom of the list? Maybe it depends on your ethnicity? Maybe if you were Black, Jewish, Mexican, Arabic, or gay the numbers would switch up a bit. Birmingham Alabama is one of the most racist place on the face of this earth.
