Yes I do it. And no not in a creepy way. But I tend to do that a lot. Be it in the check out line at the Store, in a crowd, at work , or as a spectator at a sports event.
I watch people and think to myself what that person is thinking off at that particular time. Where he or she lives, what kind of personality they might have or what kind of family life and so on.
Then you also have those thoughts like, why would they dress like that or why would they wear those ugly shoes with that, what possessed them to get a hair do like that, the kind of questions only a woman would concern herself with. I don’t think guys stand in line wondering about the guy in front them, on what size of toolbelt he has at home. Does he have the one that carries everything including the lunch box or just 3 tools, hammer, screwdriver and pliers? Or if he is a Packers or Cowboys fan? Or that he definately needs some new sneakers.
At work during lunch in the lunch room I watch my co-workers on how they set up their Lunches a certain way, or arrange things to their liking. Are they like this at home too? Do they have a certain routine they follow when they sit down to eat? Why do some talk to themselves when they perform a task?
But with all that people watching I also learn about them. I remember things about my friends their likes and their dislikes without asking, remembering just in the way they react. I learn certain things about my co-workers that I probably would never know if I would not watch them sometimes do certain things.
Now does this apply also to random people you watch in a crowd? Probably not. But it is still fun to just guess. I am just wondering if people out there have done the same to me. Good luck on trying to figure me out, I have not figured myself out yet.
