I'm from Kerman, a city in Iran and now I live in the capital city. I like peace and quiet in my home town. also there are old buildings and historical places in kerman which I like very much.
Of course not, Sarah. I live here more than 20 years and neither heard this by myself nor from someone else. Even if someone tried talking this way, it would be one of his or her last days on that workplace.
Yes, I am used to treating me as a client, but a bothering fly. And, yes, I prefer seeing smiling faces rather than angry and unwelcoming. It has nothing to do with "fake" or "honest ". It's about politeness and respect. And your appreciation and understanding the fact, that people, instead of doing their job, insulting you, is an attitude of slaves. That's why your enjoyment of getting treated rudely is not understandable for me.
