    if a stranger smile to you, would you smile back and say 'hi' 'hello' to them ??

    i would probably just smile back, or if they say hi, i would do same to reply back 'hi' ^_^

    I think that's obvious. If a stranger smiles at you and say hi, you have to do te same to him

    Imagine a nice little guy saying Hi to you and you just catch him by his shirt, pull him off the ground, stare him like anything, and ask him "Do i know you?:mad: :p

    You should smile back or say "hi" to someone you didn't know as a respect but it really depends if you think they are not the kind of person to talk to or there is something else that they want after the smiles and the "hi"s why waste time for them.

    When a stranger looks at me and smiles I punch him square in the face, then after he's down on the ground I spit on him. Then I look down at him with a scowl and ask, "How YOU dooin?"

    Of course, I'm a New Yorker and that's just how we are.

    No, not really.

    lol. admit it!! everything but the spitting part. ;)

    that's how you can spot the tourists. I remember going to Boston all the time. NO ONE and I mean no one makes eye contact let alone says hi. The tourists on the other hand are like excited puppies out for a ride, wagging their tails and looking all around.

    Jesus! That's sick. There surely are better ways to greet people. Does that mean that we, as a tourist should never visit New York :(
    I'll make it a point not to visit if that's the way tourists are treated

    I'd say hi, of course. There's nothing wrong with being kind to a stranger who smiled at you or said hello.
