Ms. Manners in Finland?

Heard last night at our dinner table:
Me: What is the translation of “please” in Finnish. Is it “ole hyvaa?”
Schwartz: There is no word for “please” in Finnish.
Me: I sort of remember that – is there something close?
Schwartz: No, in Finland if you want something, you just take it.

The rest of the dinner table: Laugh Laugh Laugh

I’m sending Ms. Manners to Finland. Even if it is true that I have never heard Schwartz say “please,” he always says “Thank you.”

Our household is pretty fun.
