I passed a person I used to know in a public place, but was struggling to hold my son so didn't say anything. Neither did they. Perhaps they didn't see me. So what then was their excuse when we were both in the same place when my family and I were celebrating my son's baptism?
Does it bother you when somebody you used to know ignores you?
Would you consider the latter situation rude or am I expecting too much?
It all depends on several things -I have sometimes pretended I did not see someone while walking as I do not feel like stoppin gand talking, however in everyday life if I saw someone I knew, I think I would always say hello.
It would annoy me if they didnt know me and I knew them which did used to happen a lot to me when I first came to Perth.
Total rudeness. Met a woman at a function. Two days' later she was seated 6 seats from me in an auditorium. I tried to attract her attention several times', to no avail. When programme had finished & we stood up to exit, I was actually able to call out to her.
Her response was very interesting. It was 'oh, hi'.
But her body language was very telling. She had reached a point she had to acknowledge me, but it was in a 'false' tone & action. She made darn sure she got 'her skates on' so I couldn't catch up with her!
Grrr! Rude people.
If its deliberate I'd be quite annoyed and I'd make a point of going over and saying gello. If its a walk by, half the time I'm thinking of other things and not expecting to see anyone I know so it can be easy not to see someone you know pass by.
no it does not bother me.
I would take no notice of this as I often miss seeing people when out and about, they see me before I see them. I really just am not looking at the people I pass by, so I sometimes miss someone I know.
