We take the bus in to town, for shopping usually. it is free and we are not bothered by parking, traffic etc. You get to meet, or sit beside all manner of people and it is not true, those words of Maggie T. when she said that you never meet anyone interesting on a bus ...you do: and you meet some awful, smelly scrotes too...but; they all mostly have one thing in common............Almost everyone shouts out a thank you to the driver as they get off the bus at their stop.

Why? He's just doing his job and can probably hardly hear their thanks. What are they thanking him for, a safe journey?
Oh! we are so polite, sometimes. :snooty:

There’s nothing wrong with politeness.. it’s a good sign whether you’ve been brought up or dragged up..

We don't shout out thanks to our taxi driver......we give him a tip, well Cosy might not.

Just think of the joy of being a bus driver if all your passengers gave you a tip.

I do.

Being well-mannered costs nothing.
(In my opinion).

You actually shout at him?...brave girl. It's not good manners to shout though, not in the street. :shakehead:
He'd prefer a tip!

No, I 'shout out' thanks.
Not shout.
(I was utilising your own vernacular in my reply).

I do at least attempt at the semblance of ladylike decorum.
Ish.


He does also receive a tip.

Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax.

What would a German know about politeness?
