    When you pass a stranger in a parking lot, the grocery store or in a class, most likely -- if you are anything like me -- you glance away, failing to acknowledge the presence of the other person, even if you are standing three feet away.

    Maybe I'm too over-analytical and eager to please, a couple of my obsessive Virgo tendencies, but this situation bothers me every time it happens.
