This morning when I was on my way to my office, a lady bump into me. My first reaction is apologize even it's not my fault. But the lady who knock me just walk away without saying anything neither a glance at me. My first thought about the lady is, she is a rather bit rude. How about you? How do you react when someone knock you or when you knock someone?

If someone suddenly bumped into me, if I know that it was my fault, I would apologize but, most of the time, we both apologize in the situation so, even though we are not sure on who actually made the fault, we are both concerned if either of us got hurt in the situation. If I was in the situation that you have mentioned, I would just let it be. Perhaps she was busy with something and she needed to be on her way, maybe in a hurry to some engagement? When I obviously made the mistake, I would of course apologize and hopefully won't get a bad look or comment from it all. (^_^")

If I bump into someone I always get so concerned I'm like oh my gosh I am soooo sorry are you ok? I feel terrible if I bump into someone. Most people are very nice about it and accept the apology but of course there is the exception to the case and people will act like you did it on purpose even if you do aplogize.

shaggin I can probably see that in malls or in places when people are abundant but, not necessarily in any haste to arrive to some destination. If it were to happen at the subway station, especially rush hour, I'd assume that a lot of people would be bumping each other without really being concerned to each other. However, in these situations, pick pockets take advantage of. So, we need to be careful as well as be aware of such possibilities. silentcandle There are different situations to consider so, things like that are indeed possible. If it ever happens again, its better that you were concerned than being rude to other people, right?

It usually catches me off guard so I will turn to look at them. I usually wait to see how they react. If they keep going without even looking back then I think how rude that was. If they say sorry then I smile and tell them its ok. I dont get mad as long as people show they didnt do it on purpose. Even in a hurry if you bump into someone you can yell sorry as you go.

I agree with what you said, she should have say something even she is in a rush because she is walking on her leg not her mouth. Thanks for sharing, happy mylotting.

That's my first reaction as well...I say sorry even if I'm the one who got bumped. And yes, its kinda rude if the other person will just ignore you...looked at you and then ignore you, that'll probably be the worse.

True, that means the person notice you but yet do not want to apologize, that will make me feel worse.

First thing I do is pull out my Colt 45 and let them have it. Just Kidding. Ordinarily, I would accept it as something that happens. Like you, I would hope they would be corteous. Now, if I was wearing my coffee after the incident, then I would be irritated if they showed no concern. But the more people around you, the more changce of a collision. djbtol

I'm the type that would take offence to that when it happened but would quickly turn around and say sorry if it wasn't my fault either.

The same as you friend, I would say sorry even if it is not my fault. I often encounter that type of people too and won't say any words and just leave. It is indeed rude but I just let them be since I don't know them. :D

hello, Yes,this happens to me before. Someone bump me and never dare to take a glance or say sorry. I just thought that she really might be in a hurry that's why she bump me. Or,maybe she is in trouble thinking a lot of things to care saying sorry or glance back. I just ignore such incident,thu sometimes it is weird,becoz i always says sorry when i bump accidentally someone when i am in a hurry. Have a good day always
