Hey, what the f*ck you looking at? Yeah, Miami's been ranked the fourth rudest city in America, what are you going to do about it little man? Yes, we just passed gas in the elevator, we aren't going to hold the door open for you on the way out, and you can sure as hell bet that we're going to cut you off in traffic, and if you've got a problem with it you can take it up with our ass.

Yes, according to a survey of regular travelers conducted by Travel + Leisure magazine, Miami is the fourth rudest city in America. The only cities ruder than us: Philadelphia (apparently not so much brotherly love going on there), New York City and Los Angeles.

Though, when the survey only took into account ratings from actual locals, Miami came in as the rudest. Meaning that Miamians are not only rude, but they know they're rude, they consider themselves rude, and they probably revel in that rudeness.

In other words, we've got an attitude problem, and we're damn proud of it.
