People in Washington Swear the Least
It's about time the state of Ohio took down a major championship. We're PROUD to announce that the state of Ohio is now the SWEARING 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.
(You know when you call a company and the automated female voice says "this call may be recorded for quality assurance"? Apparently THIS counts.)
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. They finished just below Massachusetts, Arizona, Texas, and Virginia.
The study also found two out of every three curse words come from men . . . and people are twice as likely to swear in the morning as they are in the afternoon or evening.
