Notes (by Henrik Dalsager)

Please as a polite means of requesting assistance, or together a polite means of ending a sentence, that may have started neutrally, to administer a cultural gesture, does no exist in Danish.

Please offered as a analyzed phrase (Vær så venlig), and also applied seemingly in ~ random together a official phrase, is taken into consideration snobbish, and is frequently used together a method of hurrying world in a passive aggresive way.

There is no cultural need for such a word. Rather the dance have certain polite opening phrases, and also gestures, such as Hvis du vil være så venlig in ~ ...(If you’ll be for this reason kind, regarding ...).

It is polite simply to state the request, and then to speak tak (thanks).
