When it comes to 'Minnesota Ice,' maybe you're the problem

...blaming everyone around you, is what this sign might be trying to tell you.

Reader Jo Smith responds to Socially, Minnesota is way worse than we'd like to admit:

We're all very sorry you're struggling to make friends here in the Twin Cities!

There are roughtly 700,000 of us between Minneapolis and St. Paul. Although you've been sucessful in creating meaningful, lasting relationships during your previous living assignments, I still feel I can provide you with a bit of advice: generalizing the entire populous that you're attempting to relate with as socially-inept will not provide a sound foundation upon which to create these missing connections.

Furthermore, I'd venture to say anyone willing to do so may need to check their ego at the door. Perhaps it isn't us, but the one pointing the finger.
