I'm surprised every major city in the Northeast(with the exception of Philly) made the top 10 list.

I'm surprised Philly didn't make the list.

I fully support the inclusion of DC.

There's a difference between rude and real.

I'm surprised LA isn't #2 or even #1.

I'm also surprised that Baltimore's on the list.

New Orleans has always been the rudest city in the US, and they're almost proud of it. And visitors never seem to notice.

Traveled to nearly every state. Only two cities I distinctly remember for rudeness.

St. Louis, Missouri -- There's a strip of hotels just off the highway. Went to compare rates at each of them and every single front desk personel (four of them) acted as though my inquiry into the cost was an insult to their "high-class" establishment; "We're booked" without looking up from their paper. Get off it, you're not exactly the ritz .

Washington D.C. -- The basic vibe was 'don't bother me, I'm too important to be hindered by your silly little questions or to even acknowledge your presence'. Amazingly, even the construction workers, vendors, capitol park police and tourists were rude. The only decent person I met was the director at the smithsonian.

Wasn't there another list that put LA as number 1?
However, regardless of that, why can't people just learn that there's no "nice" and "rude" areas. People are people no matter where you go. If you know how to be courteous to others, most likely people will like you no matter where you go.

Hope your other 26k posts aren't as idiotic.
