Because I keep seeing the same people, I’m like, I saw you 45 minutes ago; should I say ‘Hello,’ or should I just grumble under my breath. I don’t know what to do. I just made a rule that if I say hello to you three times on Monday, I say nothing to you on Tuesday. You’re hello’d out for the week.”
