this amazing, and would ride his bike on the footpath just to get
pedestrians to do this). The effusive apology in your email that I
quoted ("I'm afraid it's horribly impolite to be pressing like this")

polite village society that is rumoured to exist in the Home Counties
(southern England, around London). As is:

PS: Since this list is mostly populated with brash unapologetic
