How are you?

September 12, 2011

I’ve been thinking about this more and more over the last few weeks…

When you ask someone, how are you? Which answer do you want? The ‘fine, thanks,  you?’ or the truth ‘I’m knackered, the kids are doing my head and I’m craving chocolate’?

I’ve started to notice that not just when someone asks you how you are but when they ask you something about your life, what you have been up to or your opinion on something, they are really just not interested. Which brings me to the thinking of why did you ask?

I’ve started telling someone about my day or whatever, they have either changed the subject or looked so uninterested that I know that they don’t care for anything I am saying.

Am I alone in this thinking? or do you find yourself talking to deaf ears?
