No Offense to Coon Rapids
OK, so this isn’t very scientific, but if you don’t know the Twin Cities, and want some insight into its various neighborhoods, herewith is a quick guide:
What does the Starbucks clerk (sorry, “barista”) say when you order a 16 oz. skim latte?
Richfield: ‘You betcha.’
Linden Hills: ‘You got it!’
Uptown: ‘Sure’ (mumbled, no eye contact).
Coon Rapids: “Huh??”
And to anyone who lives in Coon Rapids who happens to trip across this post: what makes you think the above is an insult, rather than a compliment?
