I know places where people on the phone are sent to the back of the line if they try to order and babble at the same time. It's amazing how fast that learning curve happens.

Outstanding! It helps promote civility, this should be applied everywhere. However, this does not "solve all the injustices of the world". For that, you need to wear a suit with a big "S" on it. ;D

The best part of politeness - it is free. It costs nothing. Your please, your thank could actually save a life, literally. Have an awesome day further. :-)

"Please" and "thank you" should be automatic. Mom drummed good manners into me and my brother, and we have done the same with our kids. When my son was in high school, he told me that he ordered a coffee from the student cafe, and the girl behind the counter said, "You're the first person who's said 'please' all day!"
