I never want to be labelled as rude, ever, so I do my best to be friendly in most situations, especially when an acquaintance is involved. When I think I see a friend or co-worker from a distance, is it better to wave randomly (just in case) or be called on my non-action later if I ignore the temptation to raise my hand?
Today I realized that sometimes I can’t always trust my eyes.
Walking through the parking lot at work, amidst all the staff cars, I can almost see Joe in his van, sometimes Lari in her Mustang, or Heather in her Corolla only to discover that in each case, it is a perfectly formed seat and head rest staring back at me!
Call me rude, or what you will, but today I didn’t wave.
