What do you do, when you greet someone, and perceive no response?
I walk my dog every morning, often at the same time my neighbor leaves her house to get into her car. We are on fine, friendly neighborly terms with these neighbors. This morning I had walked slightly past her front door when I heard her come out. I turned and said, “Good Morning, Kate.” I expected nothing other than a “Hey Dinsdale” - or even a wave. But I saw/heard nothing.
Do you repeat the greeting or not?
Variation - neighbor driving past in car with tinted windows. I’d LIKE to smile and wave, but it can be hard to judge the exact right time.
Yeah, not the biggest problems in the world. But I have often been (in my mind) unfairly described as looking angry, upset, etc, I find it frustrating when I WANT to perform superficial niceties, but find it difficult to do so.
