    Default People not waving back

    Is getting pissed at this type related? Seems Fe if anything, could be Fi if the person is weak Fi and wants to make sure its there.

    I never wave back. Why are strangers waving at me? Especially the 40 year old aging hipster mothers.

    too funny. I wouldn't wave unless I knew the person! Even so I'm usually making sure the person is who I think they are and by the time I figure it out, it's too late and I'm already past. haha

    And, why would you get pissed? I'd just figure the person didn't realize who I was or they were distracted or something. Why waste your energy getting mad at something dumb like that. sheesh.

    I wave back because I know them or used to know them or know somebody who knows them.

    I finger wave. Where I barely lift my hand up and flop my fingers around in the air.

    I wave at everyone in my neighborhood. I don't care if they wave back.

    I count raising my hand as a gesture of greeting, even though I rarely wave it. I wave to babies by opening and shutting my hand.

    i just figure they probably didn't see me.

    i don't remember this happening, but if it was somehow obvious to me that somebody saw me and deliberately didn't wave back, i would probably wonder if they were mad at me (depending on the person), but i can't imagine being angry. concern or anxiety would probably be more likely.

    I like to lip-squeeze smile and nod.

    I do straight-faced nods. They mean, "I acknowledge your presence but have no wish to talk to you at the moment."

    A stranger at work said "HI! HOW ARE YOU?" to me as I was halfway into a bathroom stall (like closing the door). I didn't say anything, and she had a tantrum about how rude I was while she was washing her hands.

    I'm sick of that question. Sometimes people wave and say, "How are you?" then walk away before I can respond, like they were just saying, "Hi." But they weren't. They were asking a question and showed they couldn't care less how I was by not waiting for a reply.

    That's something I am annoyed by as well. Related to that are people who ask that question but aren't actually interested in a comprehensive answer. Why even ask?

    I don't believe I've ever actually done that. I have this thing about listening to people, and if I ask them a question I'm going to be waiting for an answer. I'm also probably going to ask a follow up question.

    Heh, back on topic, I don't think I'm going to be pissed. Probably I'll just a bit upset/uncomfortable that I took the effort to go out and greet someone like that. Yet, they don't acknowledge me.

    yeah all the time. All the women on this block do it. There was this one hipster woman who tried to lure me into her house with orange juice on new years eve when she was really drunk. I would of fucked her but she was too old.
