In an effort to pass the time while volunteering at the Chamber Ambassador parking lot fundraiser at the fall festival earlier today I decided to make it interesting by conducting a study. A study whereby I enthusiastically smiled and waved at each vehicle that passed by. It actually evoked laughter - mostly because it was so ridiculous but also because smiling actually does make you happy!
Who smiled and waved back:
Teenage girls (sarcastically, of course)
People in company cars/trucks
Men alone in cars/Trucks
Who absolutely wouldn't budge, these people are whole-heartedly committed to their grumpiness:
Women alone in cars
People on the phone (I was going to count but it turned out to be easier to count those who weren't on the phone, either way I was too busy smiling and waving at people)
It was a great way to spend three hours, and at least no one called me a name this time.
