The Politics of Speaking to Strangers on the Bus

Newark, NJ: A woman and her grown daughter get on the bus and sit behind another grown woman from the Southern United States.

Daughter: Did I tell you that everyday on my other bus, there's a girl who looks like L?

Mother: You should ask her if that's her.

Daughter: I'm not going to talk to her, it might not be her.

Mother: I always talk to people who look familiar. Just walk up to her and say "Are you L?" and if she says no, just tell her she looks like someone you know. She won't be offended.

Daughter: Mom, they're young. People kill you these days.

All three woman bust into laughter.
