Minnesota’s Ten Levels of Anger
For the most part, Minnesotans are very polite. Of course, from time to time, you will have the misfortune to piss someone off. But even then, it’s usually a fairly mild kind of anger.
Really, what is there to be upset about being in Minnesota. On that note, I suspect that if this spring doesn’t come around soon, I might let out some very descriptive verbal salvos.
Minnesotans definitely have that Canadian trait of apologizing, whether it’s our fault or not. I find myself doing this often. Someone rams my grocery cart and I instinctively apologize.
So here are the 10 levels of anger in Minnesota;
10. “Shit Louise”
9. ‘”Jesus, Mary and Joseph”
8. “Woah, woah woah”
7. “Hold Your Horses”
6. “Hey buddy!”
5. “For Heaven’s Sake”
4. “If I had a penny every time”
3. “Well now wait a minute”
2. “For the Love of Pete”
1. “Listen here buddy”
In fact, I hardly ever use any. I guess you could say my angry expressions are a bit more colorful. WTF is a good one. My wife tells me that I use it often and it’s usually when I’m trying to figure something out on the computer.
There should be an entirely different list of expressions when you’re in the car. those 10 would not be enough. Stay tuned and update the list “while you’re in the car”.
A friend told her mother that WTF stood for “Well, that’s fantastic”. Now she laughs every time she sees a message or message from her mother.
