Today, I was at the store. You know, minding my own business and what not. I was standing over a crate getting food out to buy and when I looked up I noticed a guy looking at me. I have been working at a place where presenting friendly costumer service is basically all I do....so, its become habit for me to make eye contact, smile politely, and say "Hi, How are you today?" ....so that's exactly what I said to the man that was looking at me all weird like, and it effectively put a frown on his face. I didn't even mean to say anything to him! Honestly, I was kind of freaked out by him. He just walked off, didn't say a word. I was so embarrassed lol my brother who was with me looked at me like I was crazy for even saying anything at all to the stranger. Eh, just habit, I couldn't help it. But I was kind of surprised by how rude the guy was about it. Gah, I was just embarrassed. Got to hold my tongue next time lol

    If I had a penny for every time that happened to me. Well don't take it personally some people just don't know how to react to a new unexpected social interaction like me. I've been on the other end too and I don't mean to be rude but I'm just awkward so sorry about hearing that. I'm working on it though. That one experience shouldn't deter you from showering your kindness upon others :)

    You shouldn't have been that nice but next time someone is staring at you say something like " can I help you?" That way they know you know they are staring.
