but how to make those connections to begin with?
start talking. if that's hard for you, i find it's a lot easier to observe someone. if you find them interesting, and they happen to be holding a book or something, try commenting on it. it can give you something to talk about. i work in retail at the moment, so i have no choice but to talk to people. i break the ice there by making jokes about money.
ooh! tell me some jokes!!
i'm not great at jokes. it's just whenever a customer comes to the register, i play with the numbers. if there total is $6.38, for example, i tell them 638 dolllars please. it's pretty funny when they go "what did you say?" or i just tell them crazy stuff, like 8,000 dollars. they laugh. i laugh, and we usually have a bit of conversation. i realized after a while of working that it's easier to do this because most of my customers mistake me as being mad, or mean. so i try to make them laugh.
what kind of rc things?
