Boston Ranks No. 5 on List of America's Rudest Cities

Boston Ranks No. 5 on List of America’s Rudest Cities. We can’t help that these rankings seem like they’re compiled by people who visit “Beantown,” eat at the The Cheesecake Factory, and wear matching T-shirts while out on their walking tour, just in case anyone gets lost. Their evidence against us? That we’re intelligent and we “might also be guilty” of gloating about our championship sports teams. How rude! Come to think of it, these are the kind of people who prompt us to lay on the horn, the kind of people we flip off when they stand in the middle of the sidewalk, dazed, looking around in circles. So, yeah, maybe we see their point. [Travel + Leisure]
