Do you talk to strangers?

I do. I don't give them my life story. But if I see someone who looks a little down I will say hello and tell them to have a nice day. If I hold the door open for someone of they hold the door for me I say something polite. I don't strike up an entire conversation. But I feel that small courtesies can sometimes make someones day.

What do you think?

  • I live in the south. If you dont engage in conversations with strangers on a regular basis people think you are weird or rude.

  • I always do the "small courtesies" thing and small talk.

    I've always done that, I'm from the south...I always called it southern hospitality :)

  • Chloesmom....I have always loved the name Chloe. About the only reason I did not go with it is because my dd's first name would have rhymed with her last and that bugs me.

  • YES! I do to. I talk with random people while i am shopping or in a checkout line, and I open doors, etc, and try to "pay it forward": in little ways,. It brightens my day and hopefully theirs too.
