    • Here in the East Midlands it seems to be age-related. If you greet a stranger when out walking, you usually get a friendly grunt or a reply from the over 50s (or thereabouts).

      Younger people tend to look startled or worried if spoken to by a stranger.

        One of the things I like about being an older person is that wherever you go, other older people smile at you. As soon as we make eye contact, we smile at each other. It's almost like a secret society.

          That’s because they usually walk along looking at their phones. They aren’t used to dealing with real people.

          They use Faceache, Tweeter, Tick Tock and othe antisocial media and think that that’s “talking” to a lot of people.

            They also have a term for people outside their social media groups that they meet - "randomers".
