Follow me on:
I see my neighbour. I call out cheerily to him with a question as we walk towards each other. When we meet we shake hands and exchange ca va. I then expect him to answer the question, but he doesn’t. I had spoken to him before we had shaken hands, so he had not “heard” me. I repeat the question and he answers it very happily. He is not being rude, he is teaching me politeness. I am a slow learner.
