How polite

“I am compulsively polite. Sometimes I’m rude, but I prefer not to be. Politeness is the way I was raised, and I admit that it’s not entirely altruistic. It makes life easier for me. Some people use coldness as a deflective shield, and politeness does the same thing: keeps people at a manageable distance, without cutting them off altogether.” From: In Defense Of Politeness – The Hairpin
