Sunshine State not so sunny to visitors

August 19, 2019


Apparently we Floridians are not very friendly. In fact, we are near the bottom of the 50 Friendliest States List. We are ranked at 42. But not to worry, at least we are not dead last. That's New York at 50.  The survey is based on everything from strangers helping you find your way when your phone doesn’t work to making new best friends in a local bar.  The top friendlist states include Minnesota, Tennessee and South Carolina. What happened to being a friendly Floridian? It's an old campaign that apparently we all have forgotten. So much for sunny dispositions in the sunny state. Maybe it's all that perspiration making us cranky.
