When Polite Is Impolite

When polite is impolite

It is impolite to stand on the door way inviting your friend to pass through the door before you, and your friend tries to be polite and invite you instead. And then you both keep inviting each other when there's a whole crowd waiting behind your back to pass through!
(Be selfish)

In the street
It is impolite to keep talking to your friend through the car window when the traffic light turns green.
(Use your mobile)

In the Toilet
It is impolite to say your hellos to someone you know when that someone is about to close the toilet cabinet door.
(Have some empathy)

When impolite is impolite

In the parking lot
It is impolite to hit a car without leaving a sorry note, or a check. (Feel guilty)

In the Street
It is impolite to sing "al burtuqalah" to someone wearing the color orange.
(It's old!)

Note: I was looking at keyword analysis in my stats and found the word 7mara! I know I wrote it in one of my posts but I sure didn't expect poeple to look for it. So, I checked out the other listed links for this word and found this Lebanese/English Dictionary!

Well it is impolite and risky to use the mobile while driving the car! I think in many countries you will get a ticket for that.

There are people who talk while they are inside the toilet :P
