  I am not sure, what you did? -by Goldenboy

Whenever you passing over the elders, especially when it’s really close passing, we are expected to do it with a bit bent bowing our shoulder, the right hand in front leading and the left following in our back. Sure, we say something, like ‘excuse me’ then.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
