How they're doing.

How they're doing.
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.
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
Yeah that last part is true. I should do that more, instead of giving my basic robot-brain programmed answers lol
I just ask them if they actually care or if they’re just bored. Kinda ends the conversation there.
We're all (not) okay.
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.
Same tbh. IRL at least. I just go "meh".
I'd say "idk" or "as usual" as I'm lazy to reflect on "how I'm doing."
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.
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.
No really, I'm -fine-
If everyone has to lie, it didn't make the people who are genuinely good have to be brought down!
How YOU doing 😜
Happy Cake Day too.
I'm fine. Totally.
And thank you!
About if they read the terms and conditions
Oh god the South Park episode though
I find this hilarious, thanks for the laugh.
It also the benefit of being true. Funny and true.
'I'm ok, I'm just tired."
“I’m on my way”
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.
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.
“There is nothing more human than texting ‘im five minutes away’ when you haven’t even left the house yet”
Where I'm from we have "now", "now now" and "just now"... we know how long that is.
Nobody else is the world does, though
Their mental health and well-being.
Height, salary, dick size, mental health
Mom always lies about her dick size.
*6,7 , 700k a year, 8.5 inches, mentally very sane.*
Too easy for an alpha male. Next question please.
6ft 8, 300k, 9”, great thanks you?
bro laid his cards out on the table
measure from the bottom
5’9, 0$, 8”, i lied about of of these
Well check out this short, broke bastard with the 12" dong
And vagina size
The top 3 are all about mental health. That's quite sad.
Everyone is going mad
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.
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
Well are we measuring from the root or the butthole?
let's go with the.........🤔root
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.
I post to let the haters know I'm having a great life without them because there is merit to shutting down disgenuine people.
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.
Think about how much dick is on that doorknob, people!
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.
It’s true, fuck my in laws & friends you lucky sonsofbitches for being so normal *spit
I am perfectly ok with saying I never want to deal with mentally ill people
How many beers they drink a week
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.
Keep on man. I’m 16 months sober and forgot that life can be as amazing as it is today.
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
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.
>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.
Does that include beers of the "root" variety?
As a recovering alcoholic I actually do drink a fair amount of root beer and it delicious.
Well, it's good to be careful about sugar intake.
Definitely age. Just imagine all the little kids saying they are older than 18 in most websites. Most of people reading this comment can definitely relate to lying about their age.
I'm so old that I don't lie about my age .I just forget how old I am
How are you? I’m fine! - oh, are you really?
The whole world would implode if we all answered this truthfully LOL The productivity from time lost alone would be devastating!
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.
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).
How truly are YOU though?
Their search history.
"I'm good, thanks"
How busy they are. When they actually saw a text.
Their age or previous sexual partners/ count.
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.
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.
Banish the old-age demons!
What they think about other people
About just doing something tomorrow.
probably mental health, because i know i certainly do.
"What are you thinking?"
Now sometimes it really is nothing, but sometimes we're thinking about how cute your friend is too.
Their financial situation
I have a legal income of 0$ a year so far
Many more people are carrying debt on a credit card month to month than one may realize!
all that flexing on instagram. you don't live like that
Responsibility for their own actions.
Their happy marriage
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?
How many hours a day they work - they even lie about it to themselves
Reading the terms of service
How they feel and their mental health in general. Too many times I've heard (and said) I'm fine when I'm/they're not.
Their past, their mental health, other people etc etc
People lie about sex
Addiction and mental health
Virginity, luckily I don't have to haha
I too have also had the sex. Yes
I lost mine too LOL
How much they care
This content is no longer available on Reddit in response to /u/spez. So long and thanks for all the fish.
Banging your mom
Telling the truth
Have you been flossing?
"How are you today?"
"Good, and you?"
Lies. Total lies.
Or like the quote I found on the internet randomly, "Are you okay?" "Oh god, no, but for the purposes of this conversation, yes."
Their height and weight. Mostly due to their insecurities. Other than that people also lie in order to reject something/someone instead of simply saying no.
That smell isn't me!
Well it's not.
Why they missed work..
Being happy about big life-changing choices they’ve made.
When they say that they care when they really don’t
This can also be the other way round
When their doctor asks them how much they drink.
Husband: Do you want a burger?
Wife: No, I'm on a diet!
After a while the order comes in.
Wife: Give me a bite.
Frequency of washing their hands/sheets/towels.
Climate change deniers
Their number of sexual partners and exploits.
The amount of pain they're in.
How "fine" they are.
Great grandmother is 96 now, sadly probably gonna only ever have to see her w a mask on now but it's worth it to see her haha
Or caring about children.
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.
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!
How woke they are
Dick size. I have been lying to myself about it for years.
lol, lmao, lmfao, are all lies about 70% of the time.
Weight and age.
Weight, height, and dick size.
This might not be it, but I’ve had a lot of experiences were men lie to me about drinking black coffee, when I’m just drinking it black. Didn’t know it was a thing to boast about since my teeth are all yellowing from drinking so much black coffee.
What they spend shopping.
That they love all their children equally and all babies are cute!
If they have heard about something. A band or a book or movie, whatever it happens to be. People are worried about looking ignorant. It's a hard habit to break but can be a fruitful one if you do, most folks want to share stuff like that that they like.
Everything except hips
When they say “nice to meet u”
Close second is when they answer the question to “how are you” I.e “fine”
When someone asks how they are doing. In fact, they don’t care if they are not relatives, it’s just some kind of formality when meeting.
Being in a relationship
About not lying
About their income and the fact that they like their job.
What they actually do at their job while on a first date
Their golf scores.
The one inch between 5 foot 11 and 6 feet
Their alcohol consumption
“I’ll start doing __________ tomorrow.”
After my wife had complimented her friend's newborn baby, who had just been delivered at a nearby hospital, we left the premises. However, to my surprise, she later confided in me that she thought the baby was one of the ugliest newborns she had ever seen.
How many things they lie about.
Whatever benefits them at the time
“I’m not a kid!!!!”
How much money they make.
Their financial accounts.
Everything people say is a lie.
all furries are zoophiles and pedophiles
