Today on the subway, as I headed home from seeing a show with my sister, a guy on the subway commented on the fact that I was only wearing a short-sleeved shirt and slacks despite the cold. This kind of thing just doesn't really happen to me, and it always seems a little odd when it does. I always feel like the person has some kind of alternate motive for speaking to me. We had a decently pleasant conversation, though, but the whole time I couldn't shake the feeling that he was just talking me up to ask me for money or try to convert me to his religion or something.
I'm not sure why I think that of other people. If I had to guess, it's probably because I've had it happen a number of times before. It just seems like I should give people the benefit of the doubt more.
