Recently someone answered to a post (can’t even recall the original post), that he/she is sick of the fake British politeness!
I was a bit taken aback, to be honest.
One of the reasons why I always wanted to come and live in the UK was because everyone here is so friendly and polite. Of course there are exceptions, but so what?
To get to the point:
I rather live in a land who fake their politeness then to constantly bump into a..holes!!! Who cares whether their politeness is true or not?
As long I get a reply to my “hello” (from strangers) or a “how are you?” I am fine because it makes me feel good inside, it puts a smile on my lips especially when I had a bad day. Such things can lighten up your mood!
I lived in two countries where the majority of people where quite rude and am glad to be here now!
If more people would get their act together and act a bit more polite, it would help make the world a bit better, don’t you think?
