  • i always do. My 10-year-old grandaughter was with me recently, and she's from a bigger city. She asked me why I kept talking to people. I told her I was just being friendly. She said, "that's just wierd". I said, it makes the time go by more pleasantly. She said that if I were to do that where she lives people would just look at me funny, but I've never had that happen. I think people are genuinely pleased to be acknowledged.

  • nope. they usually give me a dirty look when I say hello. Or they chat you up so much you regret starting a conversation!

  • I always make eye contact and smile or say "hi". It opens the door to talk if they want to.
    I don't often talk to people in elevators, the ride is just to short.

  • No. If they say hello, I will respond, but I see no reason to talk to people I'm only ever going to spend 6 seconds of my life with.
