Ok, so here it is. I thought it would be a neat idea to see how many people would smile back at me, when I smiled at them. I attempted a trail-run at the No Frills in Orleans last week and got mixed results. Out of the 12 people I smiled at from the time I got out of my car, until I got back in my car – here are my results.
12 smiles given
3 smiles returned
6 refused to make eye contact, or pretended to ignor me.
**So I challenge you, next time your in a public place keep your own tally, go out of your way to flash a smile and see what happens! My Smile4Smile project will continue (when I’m bored) and I’ll post my results.
Good luck – keep on smiling! – Ayn :
