Rude and Polite

"New York is New York. We’re what everybody says we are. Rude, opinionated, pushy, loud, fast-talking, sarcastic, wiseass. But what people don’t understand is, what’s rude to the rest of the country is polite to us and vice versa. Because, if I go to a pizza place, and like, 'Gimme a slice.' – That’s polite. Because you’re not tryin’ to hold the line. There’s a line. You’re not tryin’ to slow… If you go into a pizza place like, 'Hi, how are you? You must be hot.' That’s rude. You know what I’m sayin’?"
Colin Quinn, The New York Story
