Today I was walking home from school and I saw a teacher that I had a few years ago, so I said hi and we started to walk together. He was walking around 5-10 feet in front of me, so I felt it would be awkward if we just walked near each other without acknowledging each other, and once we acknowledged each other, that it would be awkward if we continued to walk near each other without talking. So, I started a conversation. Then a minute or so later, my phone rang, and it was a good friend that moved away this summer and I haven't spoken to since. I asked my teacher if he minded, and he said "go ahead", so I picked up and was talking to my friend for about two minutes before I told her I had to go because my battery was low.
Was that rude of me? Should I have not picked up and talked for several minutes? And, should I have even started a conversation with my teacher in the first place? Just wondering what you would have done, I'm aware that this wasn't a particularly treacherous situation.
