I've been noticing this a lot lately.. I was out eating with someone and none of the waiters or anyone working there met our eyes when communicating. Isn't that common courtesy to show that you're listening to someone? It could just be the nature of the town I'm in right now but I've never experienced that level of disregard by a business before. We went to a dessert place afterward and it was the same way. The lady working behind the desk didn't look up once while taking the order. I just wanna be like "hey I get that I'm taller than most but my eyes are up here not on my chest" lol
has anyone else experienced this? What's your story?

I have anxiety so it's tough for me to make eye contact. I do make eye contact when I first meet and try to hold it as long as I can, but I have to look away momentarily. I always look back, though, and be polite.
Most people stare at me, and that makes me uncomfortable. I mean, I appreciate the respect they give me, but I don't know if it's just my anxiety that kicks in... I dislike being looked at. I am working on both of these issues, trying to hold eye contact longer and trying not to get uncomfortable when people look at me.
I am sorry that the ones talking to you are not showing courtesy.1

For me I would always usally avoid looking into peoples eyes cause I would just get so overhwhelmingly much impressions. I always sort of just seen right through people to the extreme, so after just a couple of seconds I would know pretty much everything about the person and nothing would be a surprise anymore of what they say or would not say. I dont know if im psycic or lord knows. But i gotten better at just blocking stuff out over the years. But thats just me, why I dont know, but yeah I have noticed it more and more, and no doubt is cause of technology. People spend more time behind a computer or phone these days than with human interaction that a lot just kinda become shy in person or withdrawn.1
