Does anybody else absolutely hate with every fiber of their bodies being asked “how are you?” by a caller? I do. I can’t stand it. I really can’t.
I think it is mostly due to it being so insincere.
And it’s such a waste of time too.
Social rules have me answer “fine” but we both know that you don’t care how I’m really doing. And not only that but in return I have to ask back “and you?” but we also both know that I couldn’t give a rat’s ass how you’re really doing either.
You’re just a job to me so let’s just get right to the point of this call. I haven’t gotten out of my house for over a year because of the local COVID rules and haven’t seen my family in just as long so just tell me what the fuck it is you want and we can both be done with this interaction as quickly as possible.
Thank you. I feel better now.
