Illinois Residents Ranked As The Loudest Talkers In America
No matter where you're at in Illinois, someone is always talking unnecessarily loud whether it's on the phone, at a sporting event, or yelling at their kids.
I'm totally guilty of speaking way too loudly, always. I have one speaking level and it has always been on max volume. Coming from a family who just loves to hear themselves talk, it is sometimes difficult to adjust my volume when I'm around other people. Sorry, not sorry!
According to Preply,
"We set out to find which activities, from putting your phone on speaker in public to chewing loudly, are considered the most annoying among Americans. In addition, we surveyed people in every state to ask which of these activities they are guilty of to determine which states are the loudest in public. Read on to see where your state ranked."
Louisiana, Florida, and New Jersey residents were ranked the top three loudest talkers in the United States.
Louisville, Kentucky and Charlotte, North Carolina are the cities with the loudest talkers.
Among all the states, talking and taking calls in movie theaters are our biggest pet peeves. I totally agree, if you can't silence your phone or stop talking for the duration of the movie I'd get sooooo annoyed!
From loud chewing, to talking on speaker phone, to hearing people yell at their kids in the grocery store, there are so many ways we can be loud talkers.
So, where does that leave Illinois on the ranking scale?
