What Do You Do When Hello Isn’t Reciprocated?


I work in a building that houses a variety of businesses.

Aside from the radio show where I work, there are law offices, CPAs, labor unions of the entertainment industry, and one sports booking operation. Quite the interesting mix of flip-flops and clip-on ties. For the most part, the people on my floor are cordial.

Except for Dog Lady.

She was given that title long before I arrived. But, for the past three years, I have gone out of my way to smile and say hello every time we pass each other in the hall. Each time, no response. Each time, I smile bigger and say hello louder. Nothing. Not one damn thing. Her face is stone. She makes no eye contact. She just walks by as if I do not exist.

So, what should I do now? Here are the options I am considering:

  1. Continue to smile and say hello
  2. Say nothing and ignore her
  3. Trip her

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, the wrinkly old bitch gets it.

  1. Take a single sheet of paper and write HI in block letters large enough to fill the page, and tape it to her front door. Then you can take a picture of it and send it to passiveaggressivenotes.com 🙂
