2. Back stabbing
I came to Minnesota 30 years ago, from New York City, where I grew up. New Yorkers aren't rude, we are just honest and efficient. I had had problems with passive aggressive people from other places who were "nice" to your face and back stabbing. So I was naturally leery of these Minnesota people. But no, they were really nice.
But things have been changing, even here. It is very sad to an aging peace/love hippie idealist. Still lots of cool folks though. Cool, like the weather.
I think a lot of Minnesota nice originated with the Scandanavian social customs and the need to pull together to survive the harsh winters during pioneer times.
Our late Senator Paul Wellstone was being Minnesota nice when he said "We all do better when we all do better."
Someone who's generally the opposite of what they're trying to sell themselves as. A phony.
That cunt slipped her way to the front of the line, in true Minnesota Nice fashion.
