How Are You?

I don’t understand people’s infatuation with asking how each other are when it’s clear they don’t want to know.

For example, this morning at 7am, while I was throwing away a bag of trash at my apartment complex, a lady said good morning and “How are you?”

The only time a stranger asks how you are behind a dumpster is when they’re selling you drugs.

Not that I have any experience with that.

  1. The other day a neighbor was walking his dogs past me, he said “Hi how are you?”, I said “Good, yourself?”. He kept walking… I don’t even think he heard that I said good and was just satisfied with me opening my mouth to acknowledge him. If you’re going to be that lazy why not just go all the way and just say hi to save the syllables?

  2. I think some people say it out of habit because “it’s what you’re supposed to do”. If I feel compelled to greet someone for the sake of being polite, I’ll just say, “Mornin'” (it’s friendlier without the G at the end … and I’m from Texas, so the added G sounds strange around here.)
