    and you see a person waiting at a bus stop or someone just walking along and they look a little sad, give them a smile and watch them smile back.

    It happened to me the other day and I did have a big grin after receiving my random smile. Yesterday I smiled at a bored looking random and he too smiled back (in a genuine way, not a sleezy way!)

    Spread the smile love, it's great watching the happy reactions!

    (tis probably safer to do it through a window jsut incase the random person thinks you're a nut case)

    It's noticeable how many people will smile back if you smile at them. If they don't, just whip out your Uzi9mm and blast 'em.

    I rarely use public transport, but that's a really nice thought...

    I smiled at a girl at Uni yesterday which was reciprocated....
    I smiled at her because I fancy the pants off her, she was probably just been polite!

    Another good one, when you're in the car, is to toot the horn and wave at some random individual and continue driving on. It's a hoot watching the reactions of some of them. :)

    Do this in some US cities and you might have to take cover.

    Try waving at bus drivers, that usually gets a response unless they are from the inbred community of a village called Barking in Greater London / Essex.

    Another sibling has taken this to the Isle of Man when visiting his outlaw's cousin and gets a wave everytime because the drivers all believe that they must know you as it is such a small Island.

    LBB has actually taken the waving at bus drivers game as far as Perth, WA.

    And maybe Chicago, as well!

    MG Drivers wave / flash lights at each other (when its safe to do so!).

    Motor bikes (particularly "bigger ones") used to too, but I've not noticed it much recently.

    I wouldn't suggest that you do that in London as it is seen as a gang sign and can result in some catastrophic results.

    Over Christmas was visiting my sister at Wantage, Oxfordshire and went out for a pre-lunch walk on Christmas day. Not many people about so the ones we did meet gave them my heartiest "good morning". Well it was like I was from another planet - it's as if no one had ever said anything to them in their lives. Eventually had to lower my response to a smile, a nod of the head and a muttered "m'ning"; sometimes just about got a nod back.

    Honestly suffeners:rolleyes: they should be rounded up and taken for long walks in the Peak District - everybody you pass has a cheerful greeting.

    Or go for a walk along the canal, there's nothing quite like the exchanging of pleasantries when walking past a barge travelling just that little bit faster than your walking pace. People are still lovely and friendly some of the time.....

    Plus you never know who may be on the barge sometimes it turns out to be Harrison Ford and Ally McBeal taking a break on the Shropshire Union. Other times it's just somebody telling you about the badgers that have caused about 1/4 million pounds worth of damage!
