Notes on a Meeting #8 - Fake It

A couple more characters for the comic strip. These are "The Fakers." They're not exclusive to office environments. I'm sure you know a few. But really, this type is easier to deal with than the constantly-down "Moper," forever depressing everyone with sad tales of real life trouble. In our superficial culture, when we ask, "How's it going?" we don't really want to hear anything besides, "Fine." It's a greeting, not an invitation to unload.
Follow the trail of "Notes on a Meeting."

  • its not a superficial culture sort of thing, "how are you" is left over from the days when everybody had the plague and were dropping dead all over the place. it was more like, "how are you?", "my nose is stuffed, i think i've caught that plague thing. how are you?" "yeah, me too."

  • ahahaha . . . do you seriously think this is a "left over saying" from europe when the plague was raging hundreds of years ago?

    anyways, for a funny social experiment, actually answer the "how are you question?" with how you are really doing at that moment. it is hilarious. and uncomfortable for the asker when you start to give them a long, personal answer. you can see them slowly backing away looking for an exit . . . they really did not want to know how you are actually doing.
