border guards are one step up from prison guards. just hold your nose, blow some sunshine up their asses, and move on.

That's what you have to do in America - that's not what you have to do in any other country. My coworkers in the US have remarked on this also - they visit Canada often and have never been given shit by a border guard; even when hassled, Canadian border guards are always polite.

Consider that for many people this will be their first interaction with an American at the beginning of their trip, it should be a higher priority that these people behave themselves.

You get shit all the time from Canadian border guards if you're under 25 and driving across the border.
