By jillikers, we Aucklanders are polite -- or at least our small businessmen are. Big surprise here, I would have thought, was the city that came first in the "overall courtesy category": New York. Not exactly a city known worldwide for courtesy. Even Newsday was surprised.
In a city with a reputation for being rough 'n ready _ and, frankly, my dear, in-your-face residents seem to be expressing themselves with a new one-finger salute: a raised pinkie.And the least courteous? The Asian continent apparently, with Mumbai, India, dead last. Anyway, perhaps the key words here are really "admittedly unscientific." File under 'interesting' and 'anecotal.'
