Forget Southern Hospitality! Are people living in the NE Corridor REALLY RUDE?

While visiting the South a few weeks ago, me and my companion were asked if we were from "Up North" on several occassions. Usually that question was followed by, "I figured, ya'll are so impatient and come off as rude." I mean I did notice that the natives did seem a lot more relaxed (not in so much of a rush), but it only came off as annoying. I don't have the patience for a 20 minute conversation that should have only taken 5. They were also a little more polite (and that suprised me a little to have strangers saying "Good Morning" and the like). Is this true? Do you think that people from NY, PA, NJ are really rude?
