I'd probably say hello but wouldn't think someone rude if they didn't.
This sort of reminds me of when I saw a nurse I'd met once and we locked eyes and smiled and she said, "Remind me of how I know you?" and I said " You took a stent out via my urethra a couple of weeks ago. I'm surprised you remember my face at all!".
And then I died. I really shouldn't be allowed out in public.
I wouldn't seek her out to say hi ... But if she turned and saw you I would've.
No i wouldnt have said anything. Im a really busy person generally and talking to my 3 young kids is enough at times, throw in the general small talk with other mums at kindy, at school, at gymnastics & swimming, plus family and friends and im cooked. I do not have anymore of "me" left. And if im ever lucky enough to go anywhere without having to drag the kids along then nope i will relish the moment i dont have to speak to anyone or anyone to me. I used to until the other person then decided we are now best friends all of a sudden and really - they arent someone id have as a friend to begin with as we are very different.
I am a chatterbox and will talk to anyone at anytime about anything. But 2 of my kids have social anxiety so I have learnt to tone it down when I am with them.
I wouldn't have said hi either. I would have stood there debating whether to say hi, and playing out all possible scenarios, and by the time I finished analysing the situation she probably would have already left and I would have been completely flustered.
Or alternatively, I just wouldn't have noticed. I've been told that I've snobbed really close friends or family at the shops before. I honestly just don't see them.
