This reminds me of a grocery store that started a "slow" line. Noticing how cashiers and customers sometimes like to exchange pleasantries that, over time, become a kind of friendship, this grocery store decided to identify one line where it was understood that this would happen. They noticed, in particular, that older, perhaps lonely people, really enjoyed these short encounters and wanted to encourage them. What a great way to build community and combat loneliness.
