Why Are We Folsomites So Snobish?

While there are probably a good number of people who are snobs, there are others who are just plain afraid to speak to people they don't know.
Fortunately, there are plenty of people in town who are outgoing and friendly.
Funny thing, and I am not sure why, but there are people who I would see in public, at events or in social situations who would not make eye contact with me, but once introduced, became very friendly.

I used to notice that back east. I would get so well derailed by the quick looks-purse clutches-or the long stares.
Now when I travel I have this philosophy. I'm gonna take my smile wherever I go. I will say hello and smile and frankly not expect a return. When I do get on my smile just gets bigger and I feel like I just passed another like soul in quiet fearful world.
As for those who don't smile or return the hello-maybe they are preoccupied-or deaf-or maybe they just don't know what to make of seeing an incredibly beautiful soul say hello to them!!

As long as it isn't a Folsomite with no kids, right

No I smile even to them. The great thing about me is that even after being quickly offended I tend to let go and move on. DO YOU?

hey CV...where'd you put your drink guzzling squirrel...i wanted to show my girls the other day...often they are peering over my shoulder as I'm here on myfolsom and they both cracked up at the dancing horse head...
Put the squirrel back...please!
I don't see the snobbiness people refer to about folsom. I smile at people and they smile back most of the time...of course there is the occasional grumpy old man or ill tempered type but, in general, people usually return the smile and hello.

Just showed him the light saber squirrels today and it totally cracked him up.
What was the topic again? Oh, yeah, snobbish people. I always try to say hello. I'm not the most outgoing person and sometimes I think people may take that as snobbish when what it really is is difficulty with figuring out what to say after hello to a stranger.
Folsom is much friendlier than some other places in California. OC for example.
