mrG reminded me of that... what can you say in reply to "Howryouguysdoindoooday" except "fine, thanks"?

The Austrian reply would be "miserably, and you?", hoping for an "even more miserably". But I doubt people here would appreciate that....

Funko

"Fine thanks, and how are you?"

mr_G
20-02-2006, 16:43:55
my proper answer was : what the fuck are you thinking you lowlife you....

i always thought the coffee taste like piss, coincedence coincedence

Have a nice day Dyl.

My gf tried that phrase once here, which caused an utterly shocked stare by the initial questioner.

Dyl Ulenspiegel
20-02-2006, 16:45:31
Hmm... well, ok for an x-post...

Funko
20-02-2006, 16:45:34
Which one?

Funko
20-02-2006, 16:46:05
And another, that's actually a great x-post. :D

Dyl Ulenspiegel
20-02-2006, 16:46:08
All of them!

Why? It's a perfectly reasonable response?

"Terrible, but I'm getting better".

Yes, but apparantly unexpected by Americans.

My alternative to "fine thanks, how are you?" is :

"Getting there, getting there."

READ:

"I'm having the worst fucking day from hell, I'm one second away from snapping and going on a murderous rampage through downtown Swindon and if you ask that question again you'll be first."

Funko
20-02-2006, 17:00:13
Really? And totally normal in England.

That'll be fun for me in America. :D

mr_G

Still I like it more then the desinterested faces you see here in a store.

She must have run in to an asshole then because that's the standard answer you from just about everyone.

Dyl Ulenspiegel
20-02-2006, 18:17:36
Unless they discriminate against austrian and dutch people.

NY answer:

"Drop dead freak."

Dyl Ulenspiegel
20-02-2006, 19:06:31
Guess I'd love New York. I've heard that the people there aren't as overcheerful as the rest of you.

Although in Chinatown in San Francisco, the service businesses seem to run on the premise of making the proverbial german service desert look nice.

mr.G
20-02-2006, 22:17:36
actually i thought the new yorkers are more european than american.

Dyl Ulenspiegel
20-02-2006, 22:24:49
"Drop dead freak" at least sounds like us, yes.

devilmunchkin
20-02-2006, 22:43:53
"i'm doing"

Immortal Wombat

Is that californian?

Japher
21-02-2006, 01:14:46
it mean stupidly great



I always say "horny"

Greg W
21-02-2006, 02:35:55
Nah, I turn and say:
"Well, the crabs are clearing up, so I was doin okay, but then my grandfather died, so that got me in a bad mood, then my girlfriend left me for giving her crabs as well, and then work gave me two week's notice yesterday, but then my dog which I thought had run away came back, though I had to take it to the vet cos it was a bit beaten up, and my car needs a service cos it's blowing blue smoke, which someone told me wasn't good... So, things have been better really, but all in all, nothing to complain about. And how are you?"

Funko, you won't have any problems. When someone asks you how you're doing, just tell them you're generally ok, but becoming a bit concerned now that the sores are starting to ooze again.

Funko
21-02-2006, 16:32:25
I will say "FAX YOU!"

Lurker the Second
21-02-2006, 16:38:23
Don't forget the "FACT!"

Tizzy
21-02-2006, 16:41:06
FACT YOU!

mr_G
21-02-2006, 16:49:51
well NewYork is a bit like rotterdam, they only miss "Sorg & Hoop".

Funko
21-02-2006, 16:53:25
Good.

No shopping allowed.

Tizzy
21-02-2006, 16:59:03
You can't stop me

Funko
21-02-2006, 17:00:10
It's ok Lurker, your official task is to show me bars close to the shopping areas...

Lurker the Second
21-02-2006, 17:09:28
That I can do.

Finally, finally, something I'm qualified for.

Tizzy
21-02-2006, 17:12:00
Part of me wants to say... "and try not to spill too much beer down his throat in the process"
but I do have some grip on reality.

mr_G
21-02-2006, 17:14:48
hmmmmmm lurker and beer.
:nervous:

Funko
21-02-2006, 17:15:10
Just a "Quiet Drink"

Tizzy
21-02-2006, 17:22:50
I expect there'll be a few of them

Lurker the Second
21-02-2006, 18:22:42
If by few you mean hundreds, then yes.

mr_G
21-02-2006, 18:42:42

If it is cider it doesn't need to be raspberry. ;)

Venom
22-02-2006, 13:53:54

22-02-2006, 13:55:25
