People Who HAVE To Talk to Strangers When Traveling

Jump to last reply

I am good at finding my way around I would say 90% of the time. Several of us visited Chicago recently. I have a sister whose first impulse is to ask strangers on the street whenever there is a question regarding directions, a site, restaurant, etc.

When we need to determine where we were going, I'd pull out a map. A few seconds later I'd have the answer.

While I was doing that she would already be engaged in a discussion about it with a stranger. She talks to street bums. When someone has a dog she goes over and talks with the owner and talks to the dog using baby talk. When we're in a car she'll yell through the window to the next car, "Excuse me, do you know of a Thai restaurant around here???"

Maybe it's just me, but this kind of stuff makes me cringe.

Would this kind of thing annoy you?
