How they're doing.


abonymous00

Yes. I feel like I've just programmed my brain to reply with "good" whenever someone asks me how I'm doing, and I have to take a moment to think about it, and maybe change my answer.


Friendly_Cup951

I loved asking and answering as a server/bartender because i also make light of situations so if i was having an off day I'd "complain" in a self deprecating way and just instantly try and humor the guests into relaxing. Plus answering with anything besides "good" or "fine" usually prompts more conversation


abonymous00

Yeah that last part is true. I should do that more, instead of giving my basic robot-brain programmed answers lol


Spiritual_Effort4803

I just ask them if they actually care or if they’re just bored. Kinda ends the conversation there.

I’ve honestly stopped lying about it. I just either don’t answer or say “it’s been a lot. How are you?” I don’t have the emotional capacity to even lie about it anymore.


PETA_Gaming

Same tbh. IRL at least. I just go "meh".


[deleted]

I'd say "idk" or "as usual" as I'm lazy to reflect on "how I'm doing."


WowThisIsAwkward_

I answer half-honestly and say things like ‘not great, but I’m managing’ or ‘things are hectic, but they’re under control’, but it depends on who I’m talking to. If I’m talking to a professor then I’ll use that, but if it’s a stranger or someone I’m walking by I’ll just say ‘not too bad thanks’ which could imply that I feel bad to some degree. If we’re close then the gates of truth have opened. There’s nothing more awkward than having someone be disinterested in your response. So I have to know my audience. I know most of my profs are cool with hearing me be sort of honest and give sympathy/offer advice, but there’s one who just doesn’t gaf, goes a little silent and says ‘okay’ when I say it. So it’s also heavily dependent on past things I’ve observed.


AnastasiaFrid

Realistically. If someone asks me, "How are you?" I'm more likely to answer that I'm fine, even if I'm not, because I don't want to tell the other person about my troubles so I don't have to waste time talking further. I usually only share this kind of information with the people closest to me and when I'm really ready to discuss how I'm doing.


improbablydreaming

No really, I'm -fine-

welltriedsoul

That is why it is phrased that way they never say just how far along they are. Nor where they are on their way to.


[deleted]

My former drug dealer was notorious for this. I'm waiting in a parking lot at the grocery store by his house, 2 minutes by car. 20 minutes later, nothing. 40 minutes later, "Oh I'll be right there." 60 minutes... I'd probably still be doing drugs if he had been any shade of reliable.

Everyone is going mad


DMinTrainin

I mean, for the average person times aren't great especially if you've been around long enough to see how things used to be, at least in the US. In the 90s, there was a middle class and most people didn't need to work 60hrs a week either grinding one job or working multiple just to have a place to live and food to eat.


Moneybraun

Their dick size. I say it's three inches when clearly it's only 2. Now that doesn't sound like alot but it is actually a 50% exaggeration which is quite a lot


chubbyakajc

Well are we measuring from the root or the butthole?


Moneybraun

let's go with the.........🤔root


karmagod13000

If they post a lot of friend friend/party/show pics on their instagram and tag a lot of people, then prolly their social lives. Boring people are really out to prove that they always hang out with cool people and are always at cool parties. Normal people just go and have a good time.


Colt500

I post to let the haters know I'm having a great life without them because there is merit to shutting down disgenuine people.


Ok_Display_5985

Washing hands after using the restroom has to be pretty high on the list. More often than not when using public restrooms, I’ll be washing my hands and most will flush the toilet and just briskly walk out. Also dental hygiene. I’m guilty. Most won’t admit it.


Sindertone

Think about how much dick is on that doorknob, people!


Serialbedshitter2322

I don't think it's really important to wash your hands. I am one of those people who skip out on it. I have a very good immune system, and my sister, who is a germaphobe, gets sick way more than me and generally has a weaker system. I just think it's a waste of time. People will say it's nasty I just don't think it makes sense to be so terrified of little tiny bacteria that likely wouldn't even harm you.

Butt-Spelunker

How many beers they drink a week


[deleted]

I've been trying to quit drinking for a while now, but I just recently started a new attempt to stop. I woke up one morning seeing wayyyy too many cans on the desk, so I felt this response.


Butt-Spelunker

Keep on man. I’m 16 months sober and forgot that life can be as amazing as it is today.


karmagod13000

i just started bringing mine back down. just makes the next day better when you don't have too many. not even hangover level but just sluggish from too many


Butt-Spelunker

After you don’t drink for awhile you realize that all the activities you used to do when drinking are more fun when you actually aren’t drinking. I find the clarity allows me to not take anything for granted and appreciate life in the moment.


tacknosaddle

>all the activities you used to do when drinking are more fun when you actually aren’t drinking I dunno, drinking games with non-alcoholic drinks are actually pretty stupid.


Playful-Profession-2

Does that include beers of the "root" variety?


Butt-Spelunker

As a recovering alcoholic I actually do drink a fair amount of root beer and it delicious.

CompetitiveClass1478

And most people, especially strangers, don't *really* want to know about all the bad stuff that may be going on. I lie for their benefit. I don't want to bring them down.


DMinTrainin

I usually answer honestly "ok" or "I've been better". Of they want to hear more they can ask (no one ever does with the exception of really close friends and family).

Their age or previous sexual partners/ count.


karmagod13000

Age is a big one when people get older. I had a co-worker tell me he was 27 and then i got invited to his 30th b-day party a few months later. The weird thing was that he was a good looking dude and didn't look old for his age or anything like that. I think 30 just hits 20 year olds the hardest. Being 35 now it really doesn't matter too much anymore. I just try to look good for my age.


Burdicus

30s are just like your 20s except you likely have a more established life (better career, home, family, etc.) I've been loving my 30s and think everyone should look forward to them. Keep exorcising and you'll still have your youth too.

Religion. And not in the way you'd expect. I don't believe for a second that 90% of the cardinals and/or popes have actualy been religious. I'm sure a lot of small town pastors are, but most higherups are in this for the power. ​ Just to be clear, not a jab at religion or faith. Merely at ''organised religion''. Believe whatever you want, but if you believe some dude on the other side of the world needs a golden chair and a golden scepter instead of you getting food or medecine, then maybe don't?

I wonder if people are really think the masks which are widely used actually provide an almost negligible amount of protection from both spreading and contracting deseases.


Xylorgos

Whatever will get them what they want: sex, money, power, etc. At least, that's true for the habitual liars. People like Santos and Trump lie because they're always trying to rip you off and outwit you (if they can), and it's no surprise that they're both con men, stealing from people and telling more and more lies. Other people lie to stay out of trouble or to not get caught, and sometimes to try to make themselves look better. **Hint**: You end up looking much, much worse when the lie catches up with you. And then there are the "innocent" lies: That's a great hairstyle! You don't look fat to me! I would have thought you were only 25! That dress looks great on you!
