comment How polite is too polite?
My teacher says 谢谢 a lot, sometimes several times in a row when she is thanking or praising a student. (She does the same with 好.) With regards to yelling across the restaurant: I wouldn't say that chinese are less polite to waiters. They just don't consider that to be impolite. Likewise, there are some things Chinese consider to be polite that Westerners are ambivalent about (such as not properly pouring tea for somebody else).
