tonight i was attempting to make conversation and being ignored. i remarked to an observer that it was like trying to converse with a rock. i was promptly told that if that person didnt want to converse i should respect their wishes and be quiet.
so, how far does this extend?
can i respect the wishes of a rude individual 5 times?
for a day?
do they ever have an obligation to converse?
am i obliged to keep trying?
when can i give up?
when should i give up?
