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).

Downtown:  ‘Totally.”

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?
