Learn from Canada
Well, here in Canada we try to get along and we appologise a lot. Yes. half the time it is not sincere, but so what! If you know you can die of exposure if they thow you out of the igloo , you learn to say "i am sorry" and "let's just forget about it".

The guy with the gun is deaf?
I watched the video twice and got the distinct impression (I could be wrong) that the "girl" was using sign language because she realized the guy was deaf. As a matter of fact, both of them seemed to be deaf since both were shouting at each other and neither seemed to be listening. How can you reason when you are not listening?. On the other hand, could the video be intimating that women are more reasonable, or at least are better at listening?

Through humility she lost the battle but won the war!
No she is not naive but simply very clever and controlled by keeping her cool and realising that a violent reaction would have cost much more. If we just apologise when we do something bothersome to others it is sometimes best to let them think they are right.. Yes, we may be right, but it is often our in-built pride that forces us to make unwise moves. So what if they think we are nuts? Let's live another day to tell the story! Use your energy to fight the causes that really matter to Hashem and nothing else! Our personal pride has no place in G-d's world.
