to avoid entering into a dumb-ass conversation about nothing in particular?
not really good pals, as that's just plain rude, but people you know quite well/work colleagues etc.
I do this quite a lot. I'm generally a pretty sociable guy, but I find myself more and more avoiding pointless human interaction - especially when on the hoof.
I'll actively cross the road, or if they're pretty close, I'll just look at the floor til I'm back into the safe zone
fuck these sort of meetings
just me then?
