Who cares how you are?

If I ask someone I barely know "How are you?", I really only want a one word response. Maybe 2 at the most.

If you start giving me a life story, it takes every ounce of strength that I have to keep looking at you and pretend I'm actually listening.

Even if you do say you are good, you haven't really thought about it. You're just going through the motions. If you say no, then the other person is forced to ask why.

I just got stuck in a situation where I then had to pretend to care what someone was saying to me about the rut they have gotten into in their work and home life.

I'm not asking anyone how they are anymore. Even the people I do care about. I don't listen anyway. I always get stuck in the I'm good and you? loop.

I just realised I'm one of those shits who answers with my life story.
Ohhh, the hilarity!
