Rants: Do You Say Hi to People on Local Trails?

From ABAG to state public education budget cuts, Mill Valley residents have had plenty to complain about of late. What else has you ready to scream? One recent visitor ranted about locals' lack of friendliness on our trails. Does he have a point?

Rants: Do You Say Hi to People on Local Trails?

San Francisco resident Joe James didn't mince words. 

After a recent hike in our enclave, he encountered one too many people who didn't say hello on the trails. Here's what he had to say on Mill Valley Patch's Facebook page:

Dear Mill Valley,
Would it kill you to say "hello" or smile while passing someone on the local trails? In case you were raised on the East Coast, or are one of the narcissistic finance d-bags that are ruining Mill Valley, here is a lesson: It is common courtesy to say "hello" or just smile when you encounter someone on a trail. It is weird, anti-social behavior to just ignore them, and also can be creepy on remote trails. Please, people of Mill Valley, get over yourselves and say hello like a normal person.

So what do you think? Does Joe have a point?

And what has you ready to scream? Let's hear some rants. And if there's anything we can do to follow up on those rants, we'll get right on it.

Step up to the mic!
