Short story about politeness

The 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.
