Enough with the faux pleasantries.

Welcome to today’s edition of Bash A Region 2008! Today’s region is: Any state touching the Atlantic ocean between Massachusetts and Virginia. Here’s a tip for those of you in this region. “How are you?” and “How are you doing?” are not rhetorical questions. This question should only be asked if you are legitimately curious as to that person’s well-being or lack thereof. Here is an example of proper usage:

Person 1: Hello
Person 2: Hi, how are you? ::PAUSE FOR RESPONSE::
Person 1: I’m good.


Please note, if your conversations go like this:

Person 1: Hello
You: Hey, how are you, I got this problem I need for you to blah blah blah blah blah



If you’re going to be nice, be nice. If you’re going to get down to business, just do it. Don’t pretend to be nice. You’re not fooling anyone.

    I absolutely hated this the few times I had to take support calls at my last job. I always interrupted the guy as he started talking so that I could answer his first question. 🙂
