Some ‘Expert’ Says Illinois is One of America’s Most Petty States
Congrats Illinois, you're one of the most petty states in America. Try not to make a big deal out of it, OK?
Don't walk around telling everyone how you knew it just to prove a point.
We also don't need Illinois to try and one-up Alabama, the current conductor of the petty train:
Alabama (96%) has the highest level of pettiness, followed by Nevada (95%), Georgia, Texas, Tennessee, Illinois and Arkansas all with 94%.
I don't believe there are tenths of a percent either assigned to that 94% Illinois has received when it comes to pettiness level so don't try and figure it out.
If there were, I am almost certain Illinois would be considered more petty than Georgia, Texas, Tennessee, and Arkansas.
I kind of wonder if the reason Illinois was listed so high is due to there being a town named Petty being located in Illinois.
It's a tiny town of only 729 according to Wikipedia and you have to wonder if anyone has any small and largely pointless disagreements with others in that not-so-bustling burg.
If you're wondering how the results were found, Casino.ca says:
We surveyed 3,000 Americans on whether they would describe themselves as petty. We asked them to rate their pettiness on a scale of 1-10, reveal typical petty scenarios and share some petty stories.
