This is amusing because it is often said that New York is one of the rudest cities in the world!

I always take such surveys with a pinch of salt because they are never foolproof. Relevant samples, sample sizes, areas surveyed are important aspects of such analyses and have an impact on the results.

In conclusion, I don't think Mumbai is the world's rudest city.

Do you agree with it? How important is it to say 'Thank You'? Have you ever been to Mumbai? What was your experience?

I am not from Mumbai but have visited it many times and I have not found anything rude about this city. Commoners were very helpful. I have taken cabs without knowing my exact destination point and the cabwallas have helped me find the place. I have been to many places in India and I find Mumbai the best.

Note to Mods: If this topic was discussed before then please feel free to delete it.

new york the nicest city? its quite obvious these people havent been to the bronx!

So dont take these surveys seriously, they sample 10 people and expect it tor represent millions.

I used TA statistics in University and I'd always tell the students, I love statitcis becuase you can extrapolate to make the data say whatever you want

In my experience, I met the maximum number of rude people in New York. I was there for just 2 days and met at least 4 rude people. 3 of them were blacks. Big smile

In Mumbai, I have spent about an year. I can't really recall anyone being rude. Of course the Bambaiyya language sounds a little crude, and if you compare with UP Hindi, it even sounds rude. But the people are absolutely delightful.
