Have I lost my manners?

After only a few weeks in New York I learnt that if you need directions you don’t say excuse me first, you simply state your request using the least words. “Up town?”. Last week as I was rushing up Park Avenue to work a man stopped me and said “Excuse me”, I didn’t stop, I didn’t even say “Sorry I am in a rush”, I ignored him. As I sprinted past him I heard him say, “WHAT’S UP WITH YOU!”. I realized what I had done and so the next time someone stopped me which happened to be two days ago, I stopped. The stranger asked me what time it is and I told him. He thanked me and I knew my mother would be proud of me.
