A New York native co-worker once complained to me that in California, people say "Have a nice day," but they don't really mean it.
In contrast, we were working in a retail shop in a California mall, when someone walked in carrying a soda. He pointed to the sign that said, "No food/drink," and said to the customer, "What's the matter? Can't you read?" We nearly fainted.
Say what you will about sincerity in the Wild West, but Heinlein was right.
