ANSWERS: 39
  • i would laugh at them - its funny and proberbly just a joke
  • I'd never go into any detail about my day, anyway.
  • I would say, "I didn't want you to care. I was only answering you to be polite."
  • I'd probably appreciate their honesty, but I would have already known or sensed if they didn't really care.
  • i always just say fine unless it's a good friend. because really they are just being polite. It's like asking how are you. They say it because they know you will say im good/fine thanks. Just a thing you say to be half decent. People are mean
  • id say ok thats cool. i really didnt feel like going into detail but i was tellin you just to be polite
  • Poke them in the forehead and tell them, what a bad day they're about to have.
  • id say to bad im tellin u anyway and if they had a prob with that their wld b a lil arguement because thats just plain rude they shld have never asked but if they were kiddin id laugh
  • Tell them to kiss off,then ask the next person who walks past how their day was!
  • Tell him dont bother being 'polite' if he doesnt give a shit, and write it off.
  • I wouldn't need to spend another split second on that individual. A "conversation" implies that they had made some replies, and if they suddenly change the whole ground situation, then they're clearly messing with me and don't deserve any further attention. I'm unlikely, in any case, in any conversation, to have spent much time talking about my day. I tend to shift onto more meaningful topics.
  • I would quiver my lip, tear up a little, look them straight in the eye and say in a quiet, desperate voice. "Oh my God ... what is this world coming to?"
  • Call them a bastard loudly.
  • Um, its not a conversation if they have to interrupt. A conversation is where you take turns anyway. The only polite answers to 'how was your day' are very short - they are straight to the point like 'great', 'really awful actually', 'pretty good, thank you' etc. I'm really sorry but this person asked 'how' your day was, not what happened in it. That would be the next question, if they were actually interested. So many people only ask to be polite. That person was horribly blunt to you, but next time you are asked that question, give a short answer and just hope it inspires them to ask for detail. If it doesn't then probably (and I suspect it in this case) they only asked so you would say 'fine' and then ask back. I suspect this person only thought to be pleasant at all because they wanted to tell you all about THEIR day!
  • I usually don't go on and on about my days for a lot of reasons so I would probably just be relieved that I could stop talking.
  • i would probably laugh because that's what i think most of the time when i'm just being polite. when someone does ask me that if they aren't a friend that i know cares about me i just say "great" and keep going.
  • I guess you should stop being polite if it means lying.
  • I'd give them a hug and run away.
  • I would tell them that they had just been rude.
  • I would say awesome work for being honest and i wouldn't give a rats arse about your day either
  • First..it would be the same as a slap in the face Second..at least the person is honest, though very rude Third..I now know that the person can be a phony Fourth..I minimize, eliminate any time spent with him/her in the future.
  • i would slap them in the mouth and say i was just being bipolar
  • if it was a good friend, id ask what was up - as he/she would be acting out of character. if it was just a casual person i knew id just walk away and not bother with them anymore.
  • I would say "OK, do me a favor and stop being polite. I appreciate real people, not a$$holes like you." and walk away. Depending on who this person is, I might never say a word to them again.
  • I would probably tell them thanks for being honest and uncaring.
  • I would laugh and say, "Wow, you actually said what I always wanted to but never had the guts to say". I'm intrigued by people who can be brutally honest. I would probably make them a friend, then wait for the day for them to REALLY want for me to listen to their problems and I'd return the favor...no matter how long it took for me to do it :-) lol!!!!
  • I'd say something like "Well you failed pretty miserably at that, then, didn't you. Apparently politeness isn't your thing."
  • If you don't want to know don't ask.
  • I'd ask them why they had the nerve to lie to me and try to feign that they cared and I say never speak to me again because I hate a lying sack of puke.
  • That would really bother me. I'd be talking to myself with rage,.. I'd probably say something like....Why the fuck did you ask me you insufferable cock?
  • Got me t'thinkin' it might have been a one-way "conversation"...and ya met up with someone who speaks his/her mind. BTW, how IS your day going? [Yawn! :-)]
  • Interesting question. I was once told not to ask "Are you OK" after a fender-bender. You're liable to hear, "Hell no I'm not OK you SOB. You wrecked my car and now I'm going to be late picking Johnny up from soccer and the dinners going to burn!" The advised protocol was, "Are you injured?"
  • I'd prolly tell them "I just thought that you would want to live vicariously through me since your life is boring as hell and noone likes you. You fuckin asshole!I was just trying to be nice"
  • Walk away
  • Thank god! I only answered to be polite. Will you pleae excuse me, I have some air to breath and you're really wasting my time with it.
  • There goes your theory on being polite, How Rude.
  • I'd say, tell that to someone who care's.
  • "Ah! Well then you've failed! Miserably!" Then walk away.
  • I would say, "Well I think it's rather stupid and impolite to ask questions like that and make them rhetorical. Just say hello next time, be on your way, and don't ask me questions that waste both of our time. Bitch." ..Sorry...this has happened to me before...heh...
