Smile!

Whilst walking towards Victoria Station for lunch today, I decided to conduct a spontaneous survey – my aim was to find out the number of people who had a smile on their faces, versus those who didn’t.

I had to relax the requirements a little bit when it became apparent that most people fall somewhere in the middle, so I decided anyone that looked generally upbeat and happy counted in the “smiling” category, and anyone that looked like they were totally boned about it being four-days-until-the-weekend fell in with the “frown” crowd.

And the results? Exactly one person out of five was a smiler. One out of five! That’s only 20%! So, next time you’re out – smile, and become a part of the minority!

    There is a reason why people don’t smile when they are on the tube / in tube stations … should you perhaps conduct your little survey on a warm summer’s day at the local riverside pub?

    On the other hand, London seems to be a fun place:

    Enviously, one hears about these things in California! We smile, even though there is nothing funny.
    I’ll be there!
