Maybe I'm just being paranoid but I feel like people just don't like me for whatever reason. I'm not one for small talk with strangers but whenever I say something to a random stranger I'm either ignored, or melted by an evil stare. Here are some examples;

(At the cinema buying a movie ticket)

Me: "So have you seen this movie yet?"

Clerk: (makes no eye contact) "mmm-hmm."

Me: "Is it any good?" 

Clerk: "............."

(To a random stranger)

Me: "Whew! Sure is cold outside today."

Random Stranger: (glares at me)


(Cashier at store)

Me: "How are you tonight?"

Cashier: (Doesn't look at me)

Me: "Looks pretty busy tonight, hopefully you don't have too much longer here."

Cashier: "$10.85."

Me: "Thanks, have a good night."

Cashier: (Throws bag at me)


Why do I get this response from people? When I'm with other people and they make small talk with someone they always get a positive response. I don't get it.
