How friendly is your state? And where do all the rude people live? A website called Big Seven Travel asked its readers for a ranking of all 50 states and found that 6 out of 10 of the least friendly states are in the Northeast. Uh Oh. New York was named the rudest state in America, followed by Arkansas, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington, New Hampshire, Nevada, Florida and Rhode Island. Pennsylvania didn’t make the list of the rudest, but it didn’t make the friendly list either, so it’s a bust.
