I’ve been extremely busy at work and in my personal life lately, sorry my posts have become sporadic. I had to share this though…
I work in a sports store, as I have mentioned in earlier posts. One of the few things I agreed with corporate on (previous job) was greeting customers. No pushy sales jarble, I simply ask my employees to say hello to everyone who walks in, “hi, how are you today?” “let me know if you need any help”. I think it’s nice, a way to make people feel more at ease while they shop in the store and let them know who works here (no uniforms).
I HATE when people can’t handle a simple “hi” back. I know some people have issues making eye contact. I was taught to look people in the eyes because it is a form of respect, but that’s me. Some people (quite a few today) though will walk in, and I’ll say “Hey, how are you doin’ today?” and they’ll just stare at me, or pretend they didn’t hear me. I worked in Seaside Heights for a long time, I know how to throw my voice, and I know you heard me.
Are people becoming so socially inept due to technology that they can’t even handle saying hello anymore? Or are they just rude?
