so today, i had an encounter. As i was leaving a restaurant i saw this one female worker who seen me before. I saw her, looked her in the eye and she did too, so i said 'hi' to her, and she responded, and took it further, "how are you?"
She knew who i was becuase i would talk to her in a playful way with her and tell her she's not doing a good job, etc. While she's preparing my food.
what i should have done was take it a step further, and not just leave like i was in a hurry.
"hey let me ask you something...blah blah blah" but it seems like my first reaction was to leave, and not stop and have a conversation.
still have a lot to learn.
