I walked with a friend to the shop the other night, and he bought a paper, thanking the owner politely. The owner, however, did not even acknowledge it.
"He’s a sullen fellow, isn't he?" I commented as we walked away.
My friend shrugged. "Oh, he's that way every night,"
"Then why do you continue being so polite to him?" I asked.
And my friend replied, "Why should I let him determine how I'm going to act?"
