In Their Place

Look where you are – on the internet. So am I, along with more than half the world’s population. But we often forget that we are dealing with other real people when we’re on here. We are trying to connect and communicate in ways that would never work in a real life situation…

"I’ve never met you and you don’t know me, but I want you to trust me, listen to this, try this, buy this…"

How would you respond to someone on the street who used this approach? You would probably spot this pesky person a mile off and try to avoid eye contact.
