Q/A:  Why is Saying “Please” Before Issuing a Directive Important? 

We know who our authority figures are.  They are the very people, we know and they know, we have to obey.  When the authority figure says “please” while issuing a directive, it’s more than being polite, thoughtful or courteous.  It preserves the dignity of those in the inferior position, enabling them to feel they are partners, not just a person/servant to be used.
