    well?

    example

    Can you please advise the cost of 1400 square pig's noses?

    Can you advise the cost of 1400 square pig's noses please?

    I like to start with a please so they can see the politeness early, but then I feel dirty for not saying please at the end

    I'd usually go after...

    Here's one though, whats the crack with sneezing?... Some people say "Sorry" or "Excuse me" and then other people in the room would say "Bless you" and you respond "Thank you".... So why apologise or ask to be excused if you are gonna get blessed and say thank you?
    Whats going on here?

    Ask for forgiveness, not permission.

    Yeah that's a whole level of humanity I never understood, I get the origins of the blessing, but I'd never issue a 'bless you' or thank someone for giving me a 'bless you'

    I think the go to response would be
    me: ACHOOOOO
    female: 'bless you'
    me: 'don't be gay'

    Haha
    I've started ignoring the "Bless you" but feel too bad so end up awkwardly saying "Thaaaanks" or some other lame shit... But why feel bad? i'm the one with snot all over my shit and likely to have a cold..

    If I shat my pants and said "excuse me" and someone said "bless you" and I said "thanks" it wouldn't work would it!?

    They start with:
    "Sorry for bothering you..."
    22 "please"s inbetween and another "sorry" at the end.

    Canadians, amirite...
