We're PROUD to announce that the state of Washington is the Politeness CAPITAL of the United States.

A customer research firm called Marchex analyzed how often people in all 50 states cursed in recorded phone calls to businesses over the past year.

People in Ohio were MOST LIKELY to swear. They're followed by Maryland, New Jersey, Louisiana, and Illinois.

People in Washington state were LEAST likely to swear. We finished just below Massachusetts, Arizona, Texas, and Virginia. Nice!
