Say hello back to me!

I'm sure this happens to everyone at some point in their lives. You're walking past someone and you politely say "hello" and they don't say it back to you. Now maybe some people are hard of hearing and just didn't hear it but I think the majority of people can. Sometimes it just bugs me when people don't say "hello" back to me. Does this bother you?

That really makes me angry, there is a few people at work that do that. I said good morning a few times and got ignored, so now I ignore them. If you don't wanna take to me that's your loss.

yes, i think it's very rude when people do that. it doesn't hurt for anyone to speak , i don't care how important thet think they are.

Sometimes the wicked side of me wants to say, and a hello to you too. It bothers me a little if I know that this person heard me, and if I know them well. I hate to be ignored. But, I will just keep on going like as if I never spoked to them.. I have too many things that I need to be doing then worryong about why someone won't speak to me. It is very rude when you speak and they don't speak back. I guess they were in a bad mood.

It depends on how close that person is to me. If he/she is my well known friend, I wouldn't have expected the "hello" back. If it is some other person, it really bothers me. However, I'll give him/her few more chances. If they don't say "hello" before I say, I just ignore them. It should be mutual I feel.

I try to all ways reply back. Some times though I am in deep thought and dont catch what they said right away. My mom was one of those people who never meet a stranger. She would just start up a conversation with anyone anywhere. It is very hard in this day and age to find happy people who will talk back. Just keep doing it and maybe someday it will catch on and people will start to be nicer and find that there are still a few good people in the world. Have a great day..
