Why do I bother talking to anyone about anything? It's almost never worth the trouble. No one gives a damn if I'm being sincere and conciliatory. It's like I'm speaking another language.
I get along better with the complete strangers I pass by walking down the street. They don't know anything about me, I don't know anything about them, we don't talk to each other except perhaps to offer a meaningless greeting, and no one ends up resenting the other.
