    I opened a door for a stranger once in downtown Toronto. I got the most offended look you could have imagined!
    A simple thank-you would have sufficed.

    There is a social rule, at least where I live, that you don't say 'Hello' to strangers in town, but you may if you encounter them out in the country. Let's provide two obvious examples:

    1. Saying "hello" to everyone you encounter on a crowded railway platform, or in the local high street. Verdict: Go away, you bleedin' nutter, before you ask me for money.
    2. Saying "what a glorious day!" to someone who is approaching you with their dog, and is the only other human in sight. Verdict: Perfectly socially acceptable. Unless it's raining of course. (Unless you are in the North at the time, in which case, the expectations of these people are low.)

    In the town of Worthing, where we live, there are areas on the edge of town where either approach is potentially acceptable. However, it is a matter of fine judgement as to which is appropriate. Example 2 is probably best not used on attractive women considerably younger than me, whereas it would be perfectly acceptable when addressing someone of approximately my age.

    There is a default cop-out: the 'implied greeting'. This involves smiling while establishing eye contact with the other party and momentarily raising the eyebrows slightly to imply an avuncular acknowledgement of their presence.

    WARNING: Be careful not to get some sort of facial tick, resulting in multiple eyebrow oscillations. This sends out a very different message.

    In Yorkshire this is accomplished by a grim faced, deliberate nod of the head, as in "Aye, I've seen thee, I know thar't theer".

    When I lived in SMT (Southern Middle Tennessee), I learned the "steering wheel finger wave". When you get close enough to an oncoming vehicle (in that area, statistically 99% are going to be pickup trucks), you raise your index finger off the steering wheel as a greeting. If you actually know the other person, you may additionally nod your head or, if on a side road, stop and chat. Just 30 miles south, I rarely encounter this little courtesy. I miss living in the country sometimes.

    My ex-wife is from Worthing, so based on that I would say head down and run. Never start a conversation with anybody from Worthing.....

    The man, an alleged "Northerner", claims in the video that he is "happy".

    That's how we know it's a scurrilous fake. How could anyone be "happy" living in all that squalor, misery, & freezing cold with a ferret down his trousers?

    "Happy Northerner" is a contradiction in terms. :rolleyes:

    Where?
    Why say 'wassup' when a simple head nod will do? :)
