person 1: mate, i had a m-ssively awkward moment the other day…

person 2: what happened?

person 1: well, i saw this girl i know at the other side of the park coming toward me; naturally i smiled and waved.

person 2: so, what was the problem?

person 1: well, she smiled back, but we were still separated by a good fifty metres. i didn’t want to keep eye contact because that would have looked weird, and i could hardly smile again; i just had to look at the floor for a little while… was so awkward…

person 2: ah i see, cl-ssic example of not leaving an appropriate greeting distance.
