I've also wondered this, usually forgetting to say "por favor" when making requests in Spain. How about things like "quiero" vs "yo querría" vs "deseo"? Is it looked down upon if you (as I often do) go with the first thing that comes to mind? "quiero un café" for example? Maybe this is a good topic for a podcast.
