Some Sharing to Do

I was stunned to see this scene happening at Popular at City Square. Stunned would be too exaggerating but I cannot find another word. This is what happened. A small boy asking a popular staff lady, she is a Malay, wearing tudung. The boy asked 'Excuse me, where is the children book section?' I was impressed by this boy's politeness, and it is a great job by his parents to teach him that way. And the lady answered 'There!', in an impolite way. I felt irony there. Even a small boy can ask politely, and why can't a grown adult answer it politely? Is this a culture of a civilized society? That lady should learn from the small boy. What happened to 'Budi Bahasa Budaya Kita'?
