I am a horrible person

I intentionally don’t make eye contact with people whom I don’t want to talk to, not because they are bad people but because I know that if I do make eye contact and ask one little question, “How are you?”, that I will be inundated with information which I don’t care to know and I will lose 15 minutes of time listening to laments about things I would rather not listen to. And I should take the 15 minutes because is work really that important? I just don’t want to hear the story again and again. And so I’m a horrible person.
