The Golden Rule, Soviet-style

I was riding on the bus the other day and noticed a public service message from "Unified Russia," Putin's political party.

How can you recognize the Leningrad/Petersburg citizens among the passengers?

A REAL Petersburger...
-Always says thank you and smiles in response.
-Always helps the elderly out of the bus.
-Doesn't yell at everyone.

(The people who forget to smile must be the Americans)

It reminds me of a lesson we had in first grade, to the tune of "Being a courteous person." But I guess the whole "collective consciousness" thing works too. :)
