    On a street corner, would you say hello?
    Irregardless of skin color, age, how the person walks, talks or even behaves??

    Can you make friends easily?

    Keep this in mind.....that very person you said hello to, might just come up and help you out one day.

    It happened!icon_smile.gif

    All the time. It's one of the reasons I prefer cycling over driving.

    After all, when's the last time you said "hi" to someone (or vice versa) at a stop light? icon_wink.gif

    Getting out and seeing people around you is really important! Walking, hiking, bike riding or even on a horse.

    I was out hiking in a remote area of Arizona on a great day, when, I ran across this couple (2 naked gay men, older, but cool) I had my hiking shorts on and said hello. I visited for a while then headed out. On my way back I was crossing the river and I slipped, one of the guys heard me fall or at least the rocks falling on me! UGH! It hurt and the air was kicked out of me. He ran over and helped me up and asked if I was ok? He helped me over to his area and had these cool wipes that he used to clean me off. It was very kind of him. They still go out there and we've become friends. They were just being kind!! #appriciated greatly.

    That's when you "accidentally" encounter a fender-bender so you can stop and talk to him. icon_biggrin.gif

    Greeting passersby on the street is a New Orleans way of life. Sadly, many of the panhandlers and vagrants think it's an invitation to beg so I've become selective with whom I interact.

    I would NEVER hand over my phone to a total stranger no matter who they are or what they look like.

    The other day a homeless guy in a wheelchair asked me where the metro elevator was. I had no idea, so I pushed him two blocks uphill until we found it. He was grateful. That was it. Oh and he was black and his feet looked like untreated diabetes. If that matters.

    Also I love that gif.

    No. I don't normally talk to people I don't know. Most of the people I know in person I met through other friends.

    Of course I'll say hello but only if they say hello first. Then I'll keep on walking and mind my own business. There's no reason for me to stay and have a conversation with them. That's reserved for friends, family and coworkers.

    Living in London has trained me to have as little contact as possible with strangers. If somebody was to greet me on the street I would acknowledge that, but I would be very unlikely to stop unless they were requesting help with something. Even in that case I would be very wary.

    All the time...struck up a conversation with a woman at the Avocado bin, before I know it she's inviting me to dinner.
    Some guy on the bike trail nearly cried because I stopped and fixed his tire..it's not hard people.
    At work it's a game to me to see who says hi first.

    #SAVEME Ugh........She asked......LOL NO@@@!!!
