What do you answer to....
the questions of store/ bank employees that ask, "so, how is your day going so far?"
Or, "What are you going to do this weekend?"
I often find myself lying when I say, "Oh, I am doing fine" or "I don't know yet."
One day, the morning my dad died, I got a question like that and I couldn't keep myself from saying," I will tell you what my day is like, honestly. My dad died this morning so I am miserable." End of the conversation.
Can't we just go back to greeting? Would it be rude to say that I am uncomfortable with these kind of questions?
So are employees required to ask these more detailed questions nowadays? Is it regional or also in the rest of the country?
Just curious and hoping to hear from people who work in retail or banks.
