    Re: the idiom out of courtsey

    "out of courtesy" refers to an act of respect or consideration for another person. It's polite behavior.

    Max: Excuse me. Would you like to take my seat? I can stand.
    Sam: Why? Do I look ill or something, like I need to sit down?
    Max: Just out of courtesy, man. The bus is crowded, there aren't any vacant seats and you have a lot of packages.
