Does it bother you if someone you barely know doesn't say hello?

    I went out with a friend yesterday, and we went to the Casino for a few hours. (I lost) Anyways, it's very late at night by the time we get back to his place, and I was dead tired, so, when we got there I just wanted to get in my car and go home.

    Well, we get to my friends house, and his partner is on the front porch with their little dog. The dog of course comes running up to the car, so I really quick jump out of the car, run up, and grab up the dog, Say a quick hello to my friends partner, and put the dog in the house, so my friend doesn't run the dog over. Well, I then get in my car and go home.

    Well, tonight I get this call from my friend, saying how rude I was for not saying hello, or visiting with his partner. And, then I get this lecture from the partner saying that I basically can't stand him, and rattling off reasons why I am trying to avoid him. Does that seem a bit odd to you?

    I mean I don't know my friends partner that well, so why do you think he gets so bent out of shape if I don't spend time visiting with him? Would you get that mad at your friend, or partner, if they were around you, and the person they were with didn't stop and say hello? Especially when you barely know them?

    To me it seems like a jealousy thing. But, then, if it were me, I think I could care less if my partner showed up with a friend and the friend didn't say hi. I would probably care less.

    What is your feelings on this? Just curious.

    I don't really talk to my hubby's friends and he really doesn't talk to mine - we're both happy with that.

    And I work in retail, so I'm used to having people completely ignore me while I take their money, organize their warranties, get them help etc. I'd prefer ignorance to yelling!

    What about the head tilt or flashing the peace sign?  Some people are non-verbal.  Maybe he or she said hello to you in some way that you just don't realize!

      No, I said hello to him, he didn't say hello to me. He was just mad, because he claims I didn't say hi to him, or stop in to visit.

      I think he is upset because I am spending time with my friend, whom I have known for 25 years, and not spending any time with him. I think it's most likely a jealousy thing.

      He also seems like the type of person that would not be satisfied with a simple wave. You almost have to verbally acknowledge him, or he's not one bit happy. But, every time I do talk to him, it's usually to listen to him complain about how he feels left out of all the fun.

      We went to the casino. It wasn't fun.
