Walking home from the bus stop, I see two young-ish (late teens, early 20s) guys coming towards me on the sidewalk. I look studiously at my phone because I already have a feeling that I am going to have an uncomfortable interaction.
One guy says “Hi” in a tone like I’m being rude by not greeting…
why i hate tumblr: exhibit A.
Wow what the FUCK.
I take it this lady never walks anywhere. Yes, it is considered polite to greet people when you pass them on the street.
It’s okay to be polite to people you don’t know! You can do that, it’s a-okay. You can even do that if you’re 29 and have pink hair!
