    impolite towards/to someone

    Hi,

    http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/impolite

    I cannot find any entries regarding 'impolite towards someone' or 'impolite to someone.' I would like to ask if we can use it or not. For example:

    - Why are you so impolite towards/to people that you do not know?

    Thanks.

    Re: impolite towards/to someone

    Both prepositions are acceptable.
