    I live in the Midwest and the Midwest goodbye is 100% real and not exaggerated. I got a ride home once from a coworker. I went to school with her son and she was an awesome lady. She sat in my drive way and talked for almost 4 hours while it was super cold and snowing super heavy. I probably said, "well, I'm going to go inside. See you at work tomorrow" 20-30 times

Even if they think I'm rude it's a net win for me if they stop talking to me in the future . I dont need to please them. I'm very much a people pleaser but I'm getting over that because it's draining

    I called 911 once because I saw Santa floating face down in a flooded river. It was a late winter thaw, high water and an inflatable Santa found its way into the river. It looked real enough that I was grabbing ropes out of the trunk hoping to rescue him. I called attempting to save a poor rescue squad the trouble of attempting a deep woods, high water retrieval. It was a long conversation. 20 years later, I met a 911 operator from the same area, she said that they still told the story of my call.

It was a running joke that you had to distract them and kinda sneak out leave.

    This happened to me last night. Went over to the neighbors for supper. Drank a case of beers and played cards until 1 AM. On a Tuesday.

    I love when you say no to leftovers and then the person starts making you a dish and says are you sure?

    I'm not from the Midwest, so when I give them the Irish goodbye (say nothing to anyone and walk out) they don't know what happened.

      @Shannon Hensley Agreed. I think it's better to just find one person (mostly the host) to say goodbye to and tell that person, "I got plans and need to leave now. Have a good day." Then grit your teeth against any "30-120 minute" goodbye pleasantries and run. It also helps if you communicate your plan to run out at "X time" in advance and give 15 mins notice before that time so at least one member of that midwestern hangout can give a semi-proper goodbye before you really run. Then when the rest wonder where you went, the single person can tell anyone who asks that you had to run to be somewhere.

      Some offense may be taken but it's not as much as the disappearing act. Stereotypical Midwesterners will eventually notice that and take offense over the lack of a goodbye.

      Yah if you do that chances are you'll be avoided. Its definitely taken as offence or that we offended you. At the very least you'll get the "we should hang again sometime" but never given a time.

      IYAAYAS 8 days ago +7

      As a midwesterner, I'd be looking for you wondering why you left without saying goodbye. Do you not like me anymore? Is everything ok at home? Was there an emergency? How can I help to make sure you're still ok? (I haven't lived there for 20 years and it's taken my New York husband to convince me, "It's ok, you don't need to get the last word in and a goodbye is just a goodbye. You can see your friend again later." I still get anxiety about just leaving so he has to be my crutch.)

    I've been out West and to Europe and kinda felt like unexpected amounts of people were really standoffish, mean, or downright rude!

    I met plenty of absolutely incredible people in those places as well but no where seems as slow and down to Earth as the Midwest!

    As a recovering Midwesterner, this is why my goodbyes are sometimes abrupt and brief, but other times I'm at your house until 4am. The urge is too much, sometimes I can't control my power.

    Something very similar actually happened to me years ago in North of Scotland. What made it even weirder was, I slept with his gf just before they started going out. It was last time I was visiting but I wasn't sure he knew, until he told me at about 8am the following morning.
    I travelled up from England to see a friend for a week. I was at a new years eve party and everyone had either gone home or was in bed. When I wanted to leave and go back to my friends house, he wouldn't let me leave and kept offering me cocaine or alcohol each time I said I should be going. I finally managed to leave and that was after lunch time 😂
