A lot of it is definitely in the tone of voice. And itīs true that we do use please and thankyou way more than the Spanish do. Sometimes the Spaniards use 'anda' to make a request more friendly - pasame es sal, anda. Ponme un cafe, anda.... it's a bit like a casual 'please'. I think Marina is the one to really answer this question...
