“Hi! My name is Sweetgum. Nice to meet you.”
Then I might comment on where we are — at the kids’ school? At the grocery store? Fancy party? Wedding? For the school I might ask what year is your kid. For the grocery store I might comment on what’s on sale. For the fancy party or the wedding I might ask how do you know the hosts/bride and groom and tell my own relationship.
I can’t remember the last time I asked someone “what do you do?”
I don’t remember asking someone where they went to school either.
In my neighborhood if I meet new neighbors I might ask “where did you move from”, but I am more likely to talk about the weather or the nice flowers in their yard or their cute dog.
