I was waiting by the tram stop right outside the office for my halfway home ride, when I saw a woman in her mid-thirties approaching, probably headed past me, to the bench. As usual, I employed my maneuver of taking out the cellphone and looking down at it, supposedly to check the time, hoping that this will buy me enough time to avoid meeting eyes. However, when I looked back up, she was looking at me and smiling. I thought "Maybe someone from the office". Next second, the smile was abruptly gone from her face, however, and she walked past me. I wondered if she thought I was somebody else, only to be met by my disgusting face. Then I remembered that was the phone I was holding was a Samsung-e1200.
