A teacher could not be called an ardent advocate of etiquette and good manners, but dealing with people, he always showed natural politeness and courtesy.
One evening a young student drove the teacher home and was rude to the police in the way. Justifying himself, he said:
– I want to be myself and let everyone know what I feel. Politeness is nonsense, the air shake.
– It is true, – agreed the teacher kindly, – but our car tires are filled with air and you see how it helps to soften the blows.
