Reactions from strangers?
I just got back from practice. Every day I walk past an assortment of homeless, junkies and other residents of the common civic center area to get to class at noon. When I am on my way to class, they don't usually acknowlege me, but on the way back I always get a greeting. And today - I was smiling at one of them, he was sitting in the sun eating an ice cream, and I swear he said "Thank you for receiving me. Have a nice day, now." I just thought that was really odd, coming from class (where we frequently work on receiving).
So, do you experience that complete strangers react to you when you come from class? In what ways?
