I've got no good hook to this post, so I'll just let you know that I was snubbed today - totally ignored and avoided. Actually, this is the second time this couple has failed to acknowledge me. I am usually worry free about things or life in general, but for some reason this really bothered me. I can't figure out when I became so worthless to them as to not even deserve a nod in my general direction. I mean I know these people, or I KNEW them back in highschool. I could tell you their parents names, what year they graduated and how many siblings they have. Sure, we were never all that close, but we were friends to a certain degree.
At least this time it wasn't quite so obvious as the first time, but it was still obvious enough. I saw them first, but knowing from the previous encounter that they would be uncomfortable with my presence, I took a longer route to my destination. However, my destination was still in the same Lowe's paint section that they were perusing, so I held onto a small hope that when they did notice me it would be a little more courteous. No such luck.
My hope is that they have a bonified reason to avoid me, at least then I would understand, but I just don't get it. I can't think of anything that would cause them to be so apparently rude. The way I figure it is if you recognize someone that should automatically demand a courteous smile if not a "hey, how are you?" I mean, I'm not looking for a conversation. GOSH!
