If there's one thing sure to rile up even the most mild-mannered of Minnesotan, it's road construction.
Right now the Twin Cities is awash with orange cones and detour signs, causing misery for commuters.
It's no surprise then, that the frustration borne by drivers is coming out in ways like this viral tweet by @6PieceMcNobody on Twitter, which has been retweeted 1,700 times since Saturday.
(Note – we're the ones who blacked out the curse words....)
The tweet has also gone viral on Reddit, getting 1,600 upvotes since being shared by Redditor 0718Life on Monday.
While not exactly the perfect example of Minnesota passive-aggressive, it's understandable given the sheer volume of migraine-inducing construction projects going on right now.
This includes the overhaul of the I-35W/I-94 interchange south of downtown Minneapolis, work on the I-35W/I-35E split at Forest Lake and bridge replacements and resurfacing at Hwy. 169 in Champlin to name but a few.

That's not to mention work across I-35W in Minneapolis, such as the closure of the 26th Street bridge, that is having a knock-on impact on city streets.
But hey, if these projects weren't going on we'd have nothing to complain about, and what would we do then? Carry on enjoying our delay-free lives? No thanks.
And for all our complaints about construction, just think of the alternative, which is well explained by Reddit user Kichigai.
"Well, I mean, what would they prefer we do? Drive around on s----, crumbly roads?"
