If you had to guess what the rudest city in America was, what would you pick? If your first guess was New York City, you would be correct!

Just one Oklahoma city made the list, Oklahoma City at No. 39. Here's what Business Insider said about this entry:

"At first ear shot it could sound like a dispatcher was being rude or too curt. There are times that it's not only acceptable but necessary and required to be curt because you have to move that 911 call along," he said.
