but to be fair it is just a robotic to ask whats up and respond with
"shit"
i move to pass law that requires u greet another person with an appropriate greeting that shows a genuine concern for that persons situation condition state of mind. otherwise keep your mouth shut and nod ya head. anything else is being fake cause u don't really give a fuck;

ex:
hey sunny! you finish that zeitgeist movie yet?

agreed

ex:

indeed i did

its an incredible work

but they are missing the whole point of the bible

and the whole point of the establishment

they only see it from their understanding

and thats ok

cause it lifts the people out of a "belief" and has them thinking

i feel for those who stay at that level of understanding though

^ The reason you hate that greeting so much is, cuz you feel its degrading, and believe it should be used only to children. I ain't tryin to tackle ya or sumthing, there are some countries that feel the same way you do, and in others, its just a normal form of greeting.

Funny Story:

I was in borders with my kids. My youngest (one of the twins) peed her pants, because I couldn't find the restroom (she was still potty training).

When it was time to check out the clerk asked:

"Did you find every thing okay?"

I replied:

"No, I had a hard time finding the bathroom"

She siad:

"Oh it's back over...."

I interrupted:

"I know where it's at, you asked me if I found it okay. I didn't."

Meanwhile:

My other youngest, ate some chocolate off the counter. She charged me for the choclate.......after I already wrote the check. She could've said something, but she didn't. So I wrote another check for 35 cents. I think this was her way of getting back at me for the bathroom comment.

Yeah its stupid.

I remember when I was first learning French at a young age, whenever someone said "comment ca va?" you are taught to say "ca va bien, merci"

That was one of the first things in French I remember learning.

I say "salaam" to the arabic people I know.

Sometimes I just keep it brief and say "greetings".....or sometimes "salutations"

I dont like "what up?" either...a few people don't use it rhetorically and you need to reply with an answer "chillin" then its a robot cycle all over again...or if you feel square you answer "nothing...".

"what up" then "what up" back works though........

LMAO at prolif saying "Salutations."


Next time someone say "how are you?"

I'm going to reply:

Could be better, are you going to give me back my land and resources so my kids can eat?

Yeah I hate it when people say "how are you?" to me, then I have to say "I'm fine, how are you?". Everyone here usually just says "Alright" and then you reply "alright" lol. It's so annoying when someone replies "Yeah you?".

i can't see the problem with it, it gets right to the point, and it's more of a question than just a greeting, because i mean you can't replace "how are you?" with salaam/peace/whats up, it doesn't make sense.

the point is

people don't really wanna know how you are doing, its just something that they are programmed to say

and when you don't give a popular well known answer like "fine and you", you get funny looks from the initial greeter.



how ya doin

fine


how ya doing

fine


how ya doin

fine

you see, its a factory made greeting, they all come out the same

somewhat like how Hip Hop/pop music is today

Yea man, like these random co-workers are constantly coming to my piffy clean cube and voluntarily sit on my desk and cross their legs with their torn pantyhose that they sadly never notice to ramble about shower curtains they're having a hard time deciding on. I have an extreme difficulty smiling or looking interested and not mean it. I usally cringe and frown during these dreadful talks. Just today this woman was telling me about this special sauce she puts in her pasta and I'm "wtf yo". Am I supposed to ask if she includes basil chronic leaves as if I'm gay? I usually walk away dumbfounded and feel like a waste of seaman after such convos.

I hate that greeting not only because its robotic, but usually the person really asking it doesn't really care unless they truly never seen the person in a while and it might spark conversation out of the small talk.

Next time try saying something different than "fine" and see how long that conversation lasts of why you aren't fine. That would indicate if the person really does care.....but it could fault if they are really bored or just want to talk.

If it hasn't truly been that long, why not start with a more specific question than a vague one.

cultural trends aren't always detrimental, it just depends how deeply devoted you are to them. a devotion that overwhelms your self is detrimental, but an understand of the culturally accepted regularities while maintaining a strong sense of self is healthy.

i understand what you're all getting at, but i suppose if you're personally tired of hearing that greeting then that's good that you're finding a more beneficial route, i don't care what someone says to me when we meet, the conversation that follows defines the worth of the communication.

why not, is the system preventing you, again?

damn...are you all anti social or somethin? its not really that serious..

how ya doin?

good, u.

Not bad.


I usually only say it to people im acquainted with, or my neighbors just to let them kno im not a cold bastard.
The guys my age i usually just say whats up or give a head nod.

This is the problem with society today, and when the power goes out you realize how anti-social we really are.
Its cuz of TV and all this stuff keeps us occupied so we are not dependent on actual conversing to cure boredom

to be honest i think u were kinda tough on her. even tho u didnt need the bathroom any more cuz it was after the fact. by tellin u anyway, she was letting u know for future reference.

she didnt have to ask if u found everything okay and she didnt have to say anything further to help u. shes probably on minimum wage in a shitty job and u were straight rude.

and if she did really mean to do that shit with the cheque then she was wrong too. but she was probably pissed at u.

wat u think? im just comin at it from her perspective.

^---I think his remark would have been considered a smartass one by most. And if the clerk was unaware that his kid peed his pants, its not her fault. But, she got him back, and im sure it was cuz of the remark.


BTW...Sunny, how you doin cuz??
