SALT LAKE CITY — A set of new surveys put Utah in the top 10 rudest states in the country. The rankings are based on speaking with customer service agents, how outsiders perceive state residents and drivers.
According to the website Zippia.com Utah ranks as the 8th rudest state. The article states, customer service representatives said only four other states swear more over the phone than Utah residents.
3.6% of drivers in the Beehive State are also rude. That compares to only 2.1% in the nicest ranked state, Minnesota.
A poll on the BestLifeOnLine website put Utah as the 6th rudest. With Salt Lake City being the worst city.
