You certainly can't say we in New Jersey aren't polite.
If you've driven in New Jersey, you might think we're impatient and impolite. That's just not true, as long as you follow our rules of the road. But in almost all other aspects of life in New Jersey, we watch our manners.
Take for example a burglar chased from a home in Raway, NJ (north and west of my corner of the Jersey Shore). The suspect dropped the backpack he had stuffed with a couple of laptops and an Xbox when the homeowner caught him in the act and gave chase! That was back on June 29th.
Well fast forward a few weeks, and the home owner answers a knock at the door. It's none other than the would be burglar, apologizing for the break-in and fleeing on foot!
The police apprehend the courteous burglar and, for his well meaning apology, charged him with that burglary and another!
See in New Jersey, even our burglars are polite!
