Hello! My name is...

It's a simple introduction. But it goes a long way. Yet so many people just don't introduce themselves in social situations. Why? Do they not care?

Yesterday, I was a volunteer at our church during Emma's religious education class. I was a hall monitor which basically means that I'm there to keep an eye on kids so that they don't become distracted while going to and from the bathroom. Oh, and I am also given some busy work to wile away the time. There are always 2 hall monitors, and prior to yesterday, I've always known the other volunteers. No need for introductions.

However, yesterday I didn't know the other woman. I waited about 10 minutes to see if she'd introduce herself. I like to do this. I know most people will not willingly introduce themselves. It really bothers me. I'm not there to make lifelong friends, but I would like to be able to refer to the other person by name should I need to do so. So, I introduced myself and in turn, forced her to do the same. She didn't seem happy about it. This isn't the first time I've experienced this sort of thing. I've volunteered in Emma's classroom where the exact same thing has happened...on several occasions. Unbelievable.

Is there something I'm missing??

Oh I suppose it depends on the name. I knew a girl once called Jenny Taylor who hated introducing herself for obvious reasons...
