"You talkin' to me?!"

...sounds familiar? 
Spill the beans you movie lovers, whose famous words are these?

Well folks, there are some people in this world who just don't seem to believe in the most basic rules of courtesy. I could list at least 5 names right now. Looking at these people, I'm sure, the reason for this lack of manners is not always a foul character, but sometimes insecurity, arrogance, stress, no education...
...frankly, I don't care.

In my opinion, it should be known to and possible for everyone to greet, say "thank you" and "please" and it surely doesn't matter in which language. Just saying it, will be understood and positively noted. Internationally, overcoming all language barriers, cultural differences and diverse customs.That easy.

Do you agree?


  1. please; if you please
  2. you're welcome
  3. excuse me
  4. here you are (when offering something) 


wie bitte?

per favore / per piacere / prego / per cortesia / per gentilezza

grazie / grazie mille


please/ you're welcome

thank you


Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax.
{Arthur Schopenhauer}

If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world.
{Francis Bacon}

The small courtesies sweeten life; the greater ennoble it.
{Christian Nevell Bovee}
courtesy pays off
...also here.
easy enough, right?
