Yeah, but if want to know where you really stand with people, you’ve got to come up to the cranky Northeast. The range is from the sincerely rude in NY and NJ to the sincerely nice in NH, but it’s not all wrapped up in a cloying facade.
It's only "cloying" to bitter, cynical, know-it-all, Yankees.
And it's only a "facade" when graciously maintained for the benefit of those same supercilious neo-savages.
When this Yankee married his Florida Girl twenty-five years ago, she got fair warning she'd never drag me any further north than Atlanta!
