New Jersey Ranks Third in %&!#@ing Survey

Swearing study ranked the most and least courteous states in the country.

Third place? We couldn’t do better than #&@$ing third place?

New Jersey residents were beaten out by Ohio and Maryland in a survey ranking individuals most likely to drop swear words on a complete stranger during a phone conversation.

On the flip side, analysis by the Marchex Institute found that Washington, Massachusetts and Arizona topped the list of state residents least likely to lose their cool.

Marchex examined more than 600,000 calls over a year that were placed by consumers to businesses in 30 different industries.  

The mobile advertising company also ranked the most courteous states: South Carolina, North Carolina and Maryland. And the least courteous states: Wisconsin, Massachusetts and Indiana.

Some other findings from the report:

  • 66 percent of curses come from men
  • The calls that contain the most cursing are more than 10 minutes long. So the longer someone is on the phone, the more likely that call is to devolve.
  • Calls in the morning are twice as likely to produce cursing as calls in the afternoon or evening. 

What do you think about the findings? Are New Jersey residents really more courteous than this survey suggests? Do we need to start saying "thank you" more? Let us know in the comment section, but keep it clean.

Walk down any street in the USA and all you will hear is "F" this and "F" that. It's disgusting especially when walking with small children. Vulgar language has become part of the everyday vernacular no matter where we are ranked in telephone conversation. I think the study needs to observe conversations in public settings !

The most troubling is hearing how often women swear! They sound like truck drivers.
