Social Question [08 Nov 2005|05:39pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

In conversation with a soft-spoken stranger I loathe asking the dreaded "So... what do you do?" - I consider it to be distasteful and trite. However, when speaking with a new person options can occasionally run out (and it's boorish to go on too much about oneself). Any suggestions to be polite and invite strangers to "open up" without having to resort to annoying clichés?
