Should we be nice when asking for something?

Don't you think that if one wants something from another person,one has to ask for it properly??? The other day i was enjoying my cigarette and my break outside of work,taking in fresh air and sun when that guy just popped out of nowhere about 300 feet away.So he yelled at me "Hey,you!" which i rightfully ignored,so he shouted that same "greeting" 3 or 4 more times. After that it was "Hey,you! You got a cigarette?"(without moving a step closer). Then i almost snapped and told him that yes,i had a cigarette and yes,i did not mind giving him one but if he really needed it he had to come closer himself. Was that bad of me?:) Now,i'm not famous(or infamous) for having bad attitude but if i need anything from a person,i'll take the matters in my own hands and ask for it nicely:) That leads to another topic-do you think it is polite to yell at people from a distance?Unless,of course,you're just saying hi.
