SHOULD YOU ALWAYS SAY HELLO TO THE SAME PEOPLE YOU SEE EVERYDAY?

advice : culture :
[+] serious ballot by FreeRadical

Saying "Hello" is weird. When I go to work I get hit with over 20 "Hellos" daily and I must admit, sometimes I get a little tired of it. But, I can't tell anyone not to say hello that would be rude. Don't get me wrong, I'm not Mr. Grumpy, I just like to say it when I'm in the mood. Some people never say hello. I have actually gotten angry with a couple of people who I directy said hello to, we made eye contact and they did not respond.

But I let that anger subside by telling myself that speaking is a choice. There is no law that you must or must not say hello. Then there are some who say hello every single time they see you! Even if it's four or five times a day! It's weird, I wonder if there are some social guidelines or etiquette for saying hello that everyone should be following?

How do you handle it?

I say "Hello" if I feel like it.
I feel obligated to say "Hello" to everyone I know.
Saying "Hello" is unnecessary and pointless. I don't say it.
I dont know if you "should", but I do it.

I reckon if someone says hello you should always respond

Voted : I feel obligated to say "Hello" to everyone I know.
Feeling obligated doesn't mean I oblige everytime
'I reckon if someone says hello you should always respond'

That makes sense. When people don't respond they are just being rude. Personally, after a couple of tries I don't attempt saying hello to these people anymore.

Imagine nobody acknowledging you
Voted : Saying "Hello" is unnecessary and pointless. I don't say it.
If we already met, you already know I can't stand the pretentious, sheeple mentality, so piss on social courtesy, 'Save it for someone who cares', is my barbaric Motto.

BTW, Hello. I expect a damn answer!

Voted : I say "Hello" if I feel like it.
But it is usually replaced by "good morning" or "good afternoon," etc. I usually reserve a greeting to one per day per person. It is important to acknowledge the presence of others. That having been said, if you or someone else doesn't reciprocate acknowledgement I will probably cease with the formality in that case after a couple of tries to initiate it.
Voted : I say "Hello" if I feel like it.
Hello everyone.
Voted : I feel obligated to say "Hello" to everyone I know.
its just courtesy

Consider yourself lucky it means people are glad to see you. When I go to work NOBODY says hello or good morning to me.
