For the most part, Minnesotans are very polite. Of course, every once in a while you'll have the misfortune to really piss someone off.  But even then it is usually a pretty mild kind of anger.


Really, what's to get angry about being in Minnesota. On that note, I suspect if this weather doesn't warm up soon, I may be letting out some very descriptive verbal volleys.

Minnesotans definitely have that Canadian trait of apologizing whether it was our fault or not. I find myself doing it often. Someone rams their cart into me at the grocery store and I'll instinctively apologize.

So, here are the 10 levels of anger in Minnesota;

10. "Jeez Louise"

9. '"Jesus, Mary & Joseph"

8. "Woah, woah woah"

7. "Hold your horses"

6. "Hey Buddy!"

5. "For Heaven's Sake"

4. "If I had a nickel for every time"

3. "Well now, wait a minute"

2. "For Pete's sake"

1. "Listen here pal"

Actually, I hardly use any of these. I guess you could say my expressions of anger are a bit more colorful.  WTF is a good one.  My wife tells me I use that often and it's usually when I'm trying to figure out something on the computer.

A friend told her mother that WTF stood for "Well, That's Fantastic".  Now she laughs every time she sees a post or text from her mother.
