Not to go off topic, I think your question is best asked as a thread discussion if you want opinions of people on here. For me though, I don't mind. I can like both random encounters and on-screen encounters. What matters to me with random encounters is just that they aren't too high, but since you are already thinking of them, keeping in mind players searching everything, you probably are doing them well.
So I was at the grocery store trying to reach for some small garbage bags on the top shelf way in the back. Instead of going all the way downstairs to find someone to help me I grabbed a broom and pulled it down. Putting the broom back I said, "Thank you for your service".
