“How are You” take2

So, yet again I’m proven right that “how are you” is a trite bit of silliness in our everyday discourse.

I know this is about as important as nothing, but is a humble observation of mine.

Most people open a sentence with “how are you”.

Cashiers, people on the street, collegues, buisiness professionals, etc

But, it’s funny because people really don’t care too much “how you’re doing”.

And just his morning, on my VOICEMAIL a fellow says “Hi Rich, how are you”?

As if I can answer himĀ  somehow…


It would almost make an “intersting” study to determine when the shift happened to using this as an opener to conversation.
