Yesterday, we asked you: How would you define the “Midwest Nice” label? Do you think it’s accurate? Here’s some of what you said…
“Not accurate. It’s politically correct and that’s dishonest. The food is the best but too bad the people aren’t — and that’s honest.” — Roy Hillard Locke
“Spending an extra 10 seconds at a 4 way stop waving for each other to ‘go ahead’ and then accidentally all finally going at once, so you all stop again, say ‘ope’ to yourself, and start the process over.” — J. Allen
“By not sharing my edibles.” — Guy Battista
“I offer to help people with directions even if they just look lost.” — Mary Jane Tala
“Midwest Nice is just that. Respect, courtesy, holding doors, letting a car go ahead of yours, saying "Hello,” “Please,” “Thank You.” I have been all over the U.S.A. and can always identify a Midwest resident or former resident. They really do rise above the behavior of many others.“ — Irena Nowak
