Smile and Pay Attention

You ever go out and about minding your own business and somebody smiles/waves at you and you nicely return the favor? Or maybe you're the type of person that wonders why the hell that crazy person is waving and smiling at you. I like to smile at people but will only wave to a) those I know or b) if I am waved at. Yes, I am that annoying person that will give you my dazzling smile when you are all sour face or worse.

The point of this? I need to pay better attention to those that wave at me. Yes I do.

Sunday at church in my small group class, I sat in a different spot that usual. I sat next to a nice couple G and W. Well, W turns to me and says, "I saw you at HEB and smiled and waved. You were so nice, you smiled and waved back. But I don't think you recognized me." Basically I smiled and told him I am sorry I didn't recognize him. I was just in my own little world and focused on getting the shopping done. He smiled and chuckled and said maybe next time.

You'd think that'd be the end of it. But no. In worship service another lady, J, came to where I was sitting. She said, "You got your hair done at Grand Salon, right?" I said, "Yes, I did." She says, "I saw you there but I don't think you recognized me." I literally laughed out loud and said, "You are the second person today to tell me that I didn't recognize you. I'm sorry I was just in my own little world." She smiled and said something about being out of the element, I think.

Anyways, I think this clearly means I need to snap out of my own little world zone and pay better attention. It probably doesn't help that I have a really hard time of putting names to faces out and about in public. Or something like that.

All I can say, is I am really glad none of these people saw me at Wal Mart with my kids. I swear that place makes me the crazy Mom no one wants to be. I have found that at Wal Mart I am more likely to scream at my kids than any other store.

Please tell me I am not alone in running into people that I should know/recognize that clearly know/recognize me and just wave and smile clueless to the fact we actually know each other.

  2. I'm bad at recognizing faces as well. It's sad to think it might be part of getting older!

  3. I rarely wave or make contact with people because I'm terrible at remember names and faces. I usually just turn around.
