Philadelphia Ranked as America’s Angriest City
According to Thrillist, America's Angriest city is too close for comfort!
Philadelphia ranks number 1 out of 11 as the angriest city in the country!
Now, I'm not so sure that I totally agree with this list... Nashville sits at #11, I can tell you the people there did not seem angry to me.... And Chicago at #6 - they were some of the nicest people ever!
So, take it with a grain of salt, but Thrillist says Philadelphia is angry.
Some of the elements are similar to Boston -- the insecurity when comparing themselves to NY that manifests itself as over-the-top bravado; the penchant for street festivals devolving into public urine and vomit competitions; an accent that sounds like someone threw a chainsaw into a trash fire filled with gravel, etc.
"Comparing themselves to NY"... Come on bro...
No need to mention that Philadelphia is misunderstood a lot of the time and is a beautiful and historic slice of the American pie... And yes, sometimes the sports fan throw snowballs at Santa. They're a passionate group!
