Interacting with those not wearing much

When the hot weather finally settles in, you might have occasion to see people who don't have on much in the way of clothing. That happens in summer. The key is to remain calm and follow these simple tips.

Do: Focus on the eyes, but not in a psycho way. It's not a staring contest.

Don't: Yell "Great day in the morning! C'mon over here, darlin', and help me with my condition."

Do: Smile, but not in a psycho way. Remember, that person might be dressed that way because of the temperature, not because he or she is trying to elicit reactions from strangers. Well, not entirely.

Don't: Try so hard to be oblivious that you seem to be lost in a mental fog. It's OK to be alive and aware of your surroundings.

Do: Be aware of age appropriateness.

Don't: Comment on body parts.

Do: Use telepathy. But try to keep it classy.

Don't: Repeatedly shout "Yowza!"
