People don’t approach me very often I have been told that I do not look very friendly to dam intimidating. Most of the staff at my daughters schools are scared of me. I am not a bad guy but I guess all the scars and tattoos and beard scare people my wife says I am just a big teddy bear but what does she know. And they have never found the bodies so I am a totally nice guy
Maybe you need a straw hat.

So if I see someone buying the same toilet paper I use i should engage a wiping technique conversation.



I've never felt better since the social distancing practice came into play.


🤷‍♂️
Only if they are buying a different paper brand should you inquire. ...lol.

so, I figured my comment would have been intuitive with no need of explanation, but I can see you need one. People tend to associate with others who are interested in the same things.

Exactly, I didn’t list the great experiences I’ve had meeting people, because the post was about etiquette. But, I had a lady in New Orleans who just sat next to me and started telling me her life story. It was great, because she never expected me to speak also. I find that most people are willing to talk to someone smoking a pipe, and the best are the ones who don’t expect me to interrupt them. I actually thought it would make a great detective story. Have a detective who just sets around crime scenes smoking a pipe, and people just set down next to them and start giving away free clues.
Most pipe tobacco smells great, especially Virginias and VaPers which I get the most compliments on, so it makes sense that people would want to smell it and let their minds wonder.
Pipe smokers are great listeners.

I'm just as anti-social when smoking a pipe as I am when not smoking a pipe. It takes a lot for me to even give anyone a chance to talk to me in public. And I try not to ever smoke in public.
I can identify......... I have a couple of black German Shepherd Dogs that are trained as personal security dogs and one or the other goes with me almost everywhere and when I am going through training routines at a park or walking down a crowded street, or sitting at an outdoor coffee shop, people can't help walking up to me with the strangest comments and weirdest questions. I can imagine how it would be if I were smoking a pipe at the same time.

Dont fight the romance.. let it sweep you off your feet. Go with it, let your hair down.
I just find it amusing when someone speaks of how affable, courteous, scholarly, and peaceful a pipe smoker is.

Edit:I have no hair to let down anymore. Warm weather means shorn scalp!
