Saying "hello" hardly impedes some much on ones life that they can't get their leg presses completed, it's just that individuals choice to be a complete butt & act as if they are above someone else by not acknowledging them. Just my $0.02. Im glad the diva is buffalo's problem now.
I occassionally say hello to random strangers and 80% of the time people are pretty cool. But I'm not some rich/famous A-hole who gets paid millions to play a kid's game for a living.
Ice-T once said in a song that the average fan is the guy paying your bills, so be nice, sign an autograph and pose for that photo. You might just make a new friend.
