People in Miami aren't rude, it's just that spanish can sound that way since it's so fast and intense.

We have a lot of NYC and Boston transplants, so it's very hard to gauge.

And I can vouch for the rudeness of up north.

The only places I see down to earth friendliness is the Cape and RI beach communities, or actually RI for the most part.

No idea if this has any truth to it but the ones who live for the beach/coastline/outdoor life seem to be the friendliest.

I only visited NY and never had a problem- but because I am from a city maybe we understand the lingo-- eye contact body language etc etc,- I know one thing, in Miami- I knew latin was not just latin- black is not just black and so forth,, each country has thier ways and you learn them and how to communicate differently with each person.

Northerners may seem rude to native southerners but to most it is just a way of life. When I've gone back to my native Cleveland with Floridians they ask why the people are so rude. I find myself explaining its just because life moves a little faster up there. No one wants to hold the door open for you when its 13 degrees outside, this becomes habit and then happens year round. Servers don't feel the need to smile and ask how you're doing every 5 minutes because they aren't expected to, the average northerner just wants them to take their order and bring them their food.

I think northerners come down here and bring that way of life with them, but they are not realizing it may seem rude to some, and they certainly aren't aiming to be rude.

I think being cool aloof is not rude, I detest being talked down to or yelled at like I am unworthy of resepect, and believe it or NOT- young people in the public are never rude- but the older crowd, - glad they paid for the fake teeth, because they might have needed some after I got done with them, but alas I need my PT job a little while longer & will smile and give good customer service... ( grrrrr)

Being fake/artificial/phony in one's kindness comes out loud and clear, whether you know it or not.

Not genuine.
