Say Hello back atleast….

Hello All!

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?

Ugh,

  1. That’s sad. Although there’s been a few times I’ve been distracted, and only realized a few seconds later that someone was speaking to me. But if there’s eye contact, there’s no excuse.
