    How is it that people don't know that I don't give a fuck about their problems when I offer a general greeting? Some dude replied today, while welling up, that his mother-in-law was buried yesterday (I hope she died pre-interment) and that today is his kid's birthday and the kid has scoliosis. :facepalm:

    I broke a tooth eating a crab leg. Should've used a nutcracker. Spent all day at the dentist. Thanks for asking. :hat:

    Sometimes there are valuable lessons to be learned from other peoples pain. So even a simple How Ya Doin can be a life lesson.

    No offense, Lemuel, but one of my neurotic pet peeves has always been when people ask "How ya doin'?" but they don't really want to know how you're doing.....Why not just say "Hi"??????

    Do you know him casually or is it more like someone you've know a long time and that shit isn't weird.

    I used to have this one douchebag dork boss who'd always answer "How Ya Doin'?" with "If I was any better, I'd be twins!". It made me want to kill...

    Thanks for the good advice, but I was recreating the iconic scene from Splash. :coffee: You should hear my dolphin imitation.

    Let's face it Lemmy, a lot of people can't afford therapy so they dump their problems onto you. I guess they feel you're a sympathetic soul who'll listen to their crap and somehow be able to make a difference in their life. I've had this happen a million times myself, now I quit asking people how they're doing.
