About This Quiz

Long gone are the days of being able to clock out and leave your boss at work! These days, your boss is just a text away making sure that any quiet moment you get is easily interrupted. Even if you love your job and no matter where you grew up, it can get tiring! 

During this quiz, we will be able to figure out your home state by the way you respond from a series of texts from your boss. Instead of asking you a question, we want to see how you would reply to your boss knowing that you can say anything you want. Will your midwestern wholesomeness keep you as professional as you are on the job? Or will your New England sass spill over into the way you text your boss back? 

If you opened a text that read "Gone fishing," how would you respond? Would you send an emoji, express your jealousy or ask them to bring you back a postcard? Once we see the manners and the words you use to text your boss back, we'll figure out which state you first called home. 

IDK if we'll get it right, but we'll be SMH if we don't!
