Are You Guilty Of Doing The ‘Minnesota Goodbye’?

Being that I’ve only lived in Minnesota for just over 2 years, I can’t say I’d ever heard of the ‘Minnesota Goodbye’. But it’s a curious phenomenon that afflicts residents in the Land of 10,000 Lakes that apparently turns saying good-bye into a long, drawn out process.

The Minnesota news site, bringmethenews.com, describes it this way:

It’s time to say goodbye, so you make your way to the door. But you’re Minnesotan, so you don’t leave quite yet – no rude rush. You chat a little more. Then you start to say farewell, but the conversation crawls on, and there’s more lingering. Then maybe 15 minutes later, you make an exit. But not without waving as you drive away.

Do you or your family do this? I’m guessing it’s an affliction that occurs in more places than just Minnesota, because my family is COMPLETELY GUILTY of doing this– and I grew up in central Wisconsin!
