Hello again Pit,

This time I'd like to you know from you, what are some of the conversational formalities people ask you when you see them after a relatively long time?

For example, "How are you?","How was your holiday?", those type of questions.

As if that's what people like to talk about...
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

It's mainly me trying to desperately steer the conversation away from the dreaded "what have you been up to?"

I hate telling people I've done sweet F.A in the three years that have past since we last spoke.

Well this is similar to the reason why I am asking. I am asking because people I know generally ask me the same set of "how are you, how are things, how is school?" type question, so I wanted to know if there are others that people ask out of formality.

I'm usually greeted with, "fuck off you fucking asshole. Go die in a hole you cunt," or, "OH CHRIST IT'S HIM AGAIN! HE'S GOT A GUN THIS TIME! RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!" Is that normal, or do people only do that to me?

Isn't it sad how plain and boring the majority of people are that there's only ever formalities to discuss these days. I like to debate and have REAL meaningful conversations with people but they're all so BORING.

"Fooking hell, how the bloody devil are you?!"

I like to play the mince card every now and then....
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

Thank you all for your replies, I think I have all of the formal questions that can be asked generally.

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

"So what are you doing now?"

"Did you cut your hair?" No, half of it just magically fell off. Stop buggering me!
