Wednesday Trivia: The Most Courteous States

illo-people-talking_300Do you seldom hear the phrases “please” or “thank you?” Any chance you live in Wisconsin?

No, seriously: Some fun research from Marchex Institute reveals the most polite states (Hello, South Carolina!) and the most foul-mouthed states (*$#&, Ohio!), and more. The data was collected from other 600,000 phone calls placed by consumers to business across 30 industries, including cable companies and auto dealerships.

There’s more info over on the Marchex Institute’s blog, including the fact that calls in the morning are twice as likely to produce cursing as calls later in the day—which may signify just how important it is to have your morning coffee before interacting with other people!
