Those people sometimes actually annoy me with their politeness. You don't hear "I apologize for your inconvenience" every other sentence in US. [:(]
OTOH, it's kind of meaningless when spoken by a complete stranger who had nothing to do with your situation...

You are not talking about husbands, that keeps on saying to their wifes "I love you" and divorce them 4 months later, are you?

RE: How do you deal with gruff salespeople?

Good manners and politeness do not require much effort and make life more pleasant for everyone. Vote with your feet, or ask for someone else who would like to make a sale. For their lack of a decent upbringing, I simply regard such people as less fortunate. The alternative would be to hand the person a condom and say "so people like you don't multiply"
