Even all these years later, he still couldn't stop having a nasty dig at the British, as I personally experienced at Nellis AFB in 1997. Unpleasant man.
Complete contrast to his fellow WW2 squadron flyer Bud Anderson, who was the complete opposite at Nellis that day, so we ignored Yeager and had a lovely chat with Bud Anderson instead who was a real gent.
Glad that Bud survived longer than his nasty mate.

Common little everyday issues like being polite in the face of ignorance, well, men such as this, just got no time for that.
Between combat missions in the non friendly skies over Europe, flying test vehicles, that often fell apart in the sky, I'm surprised General Yeager could even hold a basic conversation with normal folks.
He belong to a small exclusive club of survivors.
May his memory be a blessing.
