For a minute I thought I might be on candid camera so I primped my hair, stood up straight and gave him my best smile. He said, "I walk this route every day and not only do people not look me in the eye but either they are so busy on their phones or whatever, half the time they walk directly in to me. It is so refreshing to hear a happy whistle and see a smile from another human on a rainy day such as this."
Well this made my day but it also made me think. It is pretty sad that we don't acknowledge other humans that are mingling around us on a daily basis. We are all here in this world together so this is just another reminder that I need to make that eye contact and smile at people. You never know what effect you will have on those around you.
Who wants to be on candid camera anyway?
