What My Northern Friends Can Learn From Southern Hospitality:
After living in the south for a couple of years I returned home to Michigan for a visit with my family. My sister and I took a walk through her neighborhood and I smiled and waved at every person we came across.
I waved at her neighbor across the street getting into their car. No reply.
I smiled and waved at the lady walking her dog. No response.
I goofily waved at a car full of people heading out to dinner, the movies, or to the grocery store. Ignored again.
I thought, “What is happening here?”
Part of what encouraged me to quit my job and move to South Carolina was the friendliness of the people I first encountered here. When you see someone you recognize at the grocery store you go out of your way to say hello and chat. Everyone makes eye contact with their cashier and makes small talk. We sit on our front porches and invite strangers up to sit and talk. And we wave at everybody we come across while out and about. It’s different than where I grew up and while on vacation I was quickly reminded of this.
My sister looked at me and said, “Why are you waving at everyone? We don’t do that here.”
I replied, “But, why not?”
How do we become good neighbors?
