PJ-: Pattuq: Any time I traveled to the US from Canada in the past, every person I met was very friendly and courteous. Back home in Canada half the people in my city were thugs, meth-heads, arrogant hipsters or racist immigrants. I later moved to a city with 65% of the population being Asian (nearly 50% Chinese). I forgot what manners were for a while while I was there. Now I'm in Japan where the *true* "sorry people" live. Apologies fly about like mosquitoes in a swamp. I'll walk into a convenience store near my office to buy smokes and a snack, and the manager will walk over to me and bow deeply in welcome. Back in Canada most clerks would be exceedingly polite if they bothered to look up from their magazine or phone.Who ever made the "Canadians are polite" meme has never been to Canada.Maybe it's because you are a raging dick expecting people to bow at your feet as you walk through the door.
