Cabin fever

"Scott Collins was restless and irritable, but he fought down the feeling, knowing that there was nothing worse in the confinement of a snowbound shelter than a man who grumbles and complains." (from Down the Long Hills, by Louis L'Amour)

The more confined the circumstances, the more essential courtesy becomes. Thus the contrast between the lack of restraint in the western USA and the exquisite courtesy of Japan.
