Re: “Thanking the bus driver from the back door is for total morons

OP here. Quite the deluge of foul-mouthed moronitude I provoked, along with a couple flamewars. Unsurprisingly, the point was totally missed by most. I'm not against thanking people, I'm not even against thanking the bus driver, I'm against SCREAMING IT FROM THE BACK OF THE BUS.

Why, you wonder? Why could it ever, ever possibly be rude to thank somebody? Oh happy Haligonian stupidity! It's because YOU ARE THANKING YOURSELF FOR BEING A POLITE PERSON, not the bus driver for driving, when you do that. Likewise, people are not grateful for being asked to run the last fifteen steps so you can have the pleasure of being the kind of person who holds the door for them.

But . . . self-congratulation and self-indulgence not noticed, or actually applauded, in Halifax? You don't say!
