"There are two occasions when you have to be nice to people.
to avoid violence to your person (Auli always gets his basil)
to get what you want. (Come here little Piggy Piggy)
Other than that it is just not worth the trouble to be decent and civil. It is so time consuming. You can easily get rid of boring people by insulting them. Bores are only interested in one thing and that is themselves. If you are rude to them then they realise that they are not the centre of the universe, and life does not revolve around them. Just walk away, is all I say."
Virpi got up from her chair and walked out the shop without a word.
