What would you attempt or avoid when you make eye contact with one of these 5 people.
I had an awkward stare with some middle aged lady on the bus, and yea...awkward.
Kinda hoped for someone else.

1. Some random average looking girl/guy. (Your age)

2. Some cute girl/guy, every part of her is what you like.

3. Some hobo.

4. Your ex's mother with tons of groceries.

5. A blonde 30 year old Mother breast feeding her child.


This is all to how you imagine them so no saying depends.
(And I know some people will say it for their SnG)

1. Smile and say hi, then maybe we just become friends somehow :p

2. Try a conversation and make her laugh and smile, and hopefully I won't sound creepy :o

3. Just keep a poker face and say Goodness in my head then look away. And avoid conversation by any means necessary!

4. Ask if she needs help. Avoid talk about the ex, and if she want me to help with the groceries I'd just hope she isn't home.

5. Say she has a nice baby and try and not to look at her breasts while she is looking at me. (I'm a guy so don't judge)

I'd give a high five to every single one of them. But completely ignore the hobo...never liked hobos, unless they are Charlie Chaplin, then instead I'd marry that one.

Avoid eye contact with them all, especially #5. I think it's disrespectful to stare when a mother is feeding her child.

I am a pretty shy person, so probably wouldn't talk to anyone unless they spoke to me first, whether they were average or hot. And I would probably be skeptical of any strangers just striking up a conversation with me.

I am hoping the hobo doesn't ask me for money and would probably avoid eye contact in the hopes that he would not speak to me (especially if I am alone).

I would maybe say "HI" to the ex's mom, but it has been over 11 years, so she wouldn't remember me anyways. And I wouldn't have to worry about running into the ex as he is still in jail, so ummmm, yeah...

Would not speak to or acknowledge the breast feeding mom. I am probably gonna catch some flack for this comment, but while breast feeding is a natural thing, and a baby has to eat and all that...I still don't agree with doing it in public. Use a breast pump and bring a bottle.

Ignore everyone and act nonchalant. With the gregarious bus riders around here that doesn't work so well.

You have to be careful with "hobos". They can be nice or they can be seriously mentally ill. You might have a pleasant conversation or a violent outburst. Therefore, I ignore them.

With an ex's mom I'd be as friendly as they seemed receptive to.

With today's accoutrement you don't see anything. It's none of my business anyway. I'd talk about "mommy" stuff or smile and look away.

Seeing that I have not ridden a bus in decades...my reactions would be:

1. Ignore...

2. Casual glance...maybe something interesting can happen...

3. Ignore...unless the stench gets unbearable...

4. Smile and offer her condolences on the POS she gave birth to...

5. Smile...and ask if she's an open bar (if she looks good enough)...

Hm, regardless of who they are, treat them with proper bus respect I imagine would be my ... plan? However, that response is boring, so allow me to reiterate. I'd freeze time, immediately rush to several stores to pick up some nice detective clothing, that which is similar to the clothing Cole Phelps has from the L.A Noire game. Afterward, I'd unfreeze time just right I'm about to enter the bus, and give everyone the most intimidating detective glare as I walk to the back of the seat of the bus. Yes, there would be a slow motion scene in which I give one individual a great glare dose than the others
