Now, within a homogenous cultural group where social codes and values are normalized, you can probably afford to treat most people the way you’d want to be treated, because they are theoretically playing by the same rules. However it still makes good sense to be careful when you deal with strangers, and if your mother cared about you at all, she already taught you that.
