    Yeah, there is a sadistic personality type that gets turned on by stuff like that.

    Saying "How are you today?" is the lightning way of communicating "Here Comes A Salesperson."

    Stop saying it.

    Sound different...be treated differently.

      Exactly. People don't think back to telemarketing calls and think "dude! That guy never asked me how I was! How rude!". In fact they never even notice. All it does is make them start thinking of rebuttals.

      Try to think of one time in your life that you remember someone not asking you how your day is going? Cant think of one, right? That's not because every conversation you have ever had has started with "how are you?", its because on one cares!!

    When someone drops a cuss word, I take that as an opportunity to be completely casual. I usually say "been there, let me try to cheer you up."
