I think you will find good and bad everywhere, but more rural people seem to be more outgoing. Here is a story about what happened to me in mexico NY. I think in general people there are freindly. Except for two of them. When I was there I needed some gas, almost empty. So I pulled up to a gas pump (only one in town I suppose I dont know) two cars at the pumps. One was being filled by an old geezer. I waited behind for my turn, and waited and waited, I could see them visiting at the till. I had Ontario plates (rental car). I had lots of time so I just sat, the other car didn't go anywhere. I looked at my watch I figured I would wait 10 minutes. When the time was up I want in and asked the attendent where I could go to get some gas today. She said I could fill up right here, but was obviously being snotty, then she carries right on talking to the old fart as if I wasn't even there. So I just gave up and left went back to the main highway and prayed we would make it to the next gas station, and we did.
I wonder what I did to be treated like that? Was it because I am Canadian? Or was it just because I was an outsider? I spend a lot of money in the U.S.A. every year and am usually treated right. Mexico NY wont be getting any more visits from me thats for sure.
