I grew up in Brown County and didn't hear the please thing much. So when I was in my 20s working at UDF, a customer ordered a hot fudge sundae and I asked her if she wanted nuts on it. Se said please, so I proceeded to put the nuts on it. She then said that she didn't want nuts on her sundae and I was confused because I assumed by saying please she was saying yes, and rather politely.
