Yes, there is a certain amount of caution that is justified to have around strangers.

However, strangers walking around at the grocery store vs. strangers walking around at a party-- why is the party more anxiety-provoking?

I think it's because we want people to like us or at least respect us at a party. We want to have someone to chat with/to. At the grocery store, I don't give a flying f*ck about what the other people think of me, as long as they don't try to reenact a chariot race with my buggy, cut ahead of me in line or yell at me.

Declan, people ARE scary animals. You are very right about that. Living together in social harmony requires a certain amount of mass hysteria that we call "being civil"
