    If some random stranger approaches my I have no way of knowing his intent. Is this some random comment that I don't want to hear anyway or is it an interview?

    I don’t see any reason why I should be subject to some random stranger invading my space and imposing his opinion of my life upon me. I never said I’d be a jerk, I said I’d act like he never spoke at all Why that is unreasonable?
    Completely ignoring someone who is speaking nicely to you is just plain rude.
    Rudeness is jerk like behaviour.

    That's okay though Dude.
    99.99999999% of the time Treo does not OC so he is not acting like a jerk.

    In some cultures invading a stranger’s space is considered rude.

    I’m not so much trying to get you to accept the way I live my life as I am trying to make you aware that there are people like me out there and hope you take that into consideration before invading some stranger’s bubble

    I agree with treo on this, I go on edge when a stranger approches me.

    Clearly, you too are an uneducated boor because you don't live your life for the edification of random strangers

Or express their displeasure at the views you express or smash the windows on your car and steal what ever you have in it

    Yup, just a dumb redneck. I don't mine people talking to me at the range, or gun store. I don't like anything outside of that. I am leery of people.

    I deal with strangers on a daily basis I don't tell them anything personal I heard a good saying once "be friendly but not friends". I guess it depends on the circumstance weather I'd be edgy or not.

    To be perfectly honest if I donít know you I donít want you in my bubble at all. I donít care what you think of my hat or my choice of car, or the tools in my roll away (and no I wonít loan you any of them). The older I get the less I like to interact with strangers, thatís just who I am.

    I would be a little more on alert if you started talking about my gun because your conversation shows that you are focused on it.
    Treo,
    I'm not aware that I ever spoke to you, gave you feedback, or entered your bubble. And trust me; I never would because of who you are and how you look and smell.

    After a little explanation I can see where you're coming from Treo. Here in the south (where I live at least), people are fairly friendly and even sociable. We say hello while were are in line at the store and may even engage in a little small talk. We may even compliment a complete stranger on his nice truck. There are even restaurants here that have community tables where complete strangers may come and sit by you while they eat.

    Personally, I love the friendliness and social attitudes we have here. I've met some very interesting people. Sure, most didn't become my "friends". But, after these small meetings I always come away feeling better about life and have a stronger sense of community. I feel sorry for people who live in places where they have to be "suspect" of everyone who says "hello".

    IOW since you can't refute my argument you're going to attack my hygene?
