American Sign Language: "polite"


To sign polite you brush the tip of the thumb of your dominant five-hand twice on your chest using an upward motion.  The hand moves in a very small circle, up, out, down, back.  It is on the upward stroke that the thumb-tip touches the chest.  You might see other versions of the sign "polite," but this is how I do it.
