The obligatory "How was your weekend?" and my rant
First off, what difference does it make? Will my response trigger some wave that will change the world in a meaningful way.
My weekend sucked. OK. But it's Monday, you're here, and now it doesn't seem to suck as much compared to this moment.
All they really want is a single word response anyway. If I pulled them into my office, sat them down, and really delved into how my weekend went, they would probably jam ice picks in their ears if they were available.
"How was your weekend?"
"Well, I suppose."
"I got those TPS reports."
The way I want it to go:
"How was your weekend?"
"F - off."
Much better. Can I use it?

Oh, not great. I've told you I've been waking up next to dead hookers for the last few weeks, right? My doctor is prescribing higher and higher doses of anti-psychotics but I'm not really sure it's doing the job anymore. Well, this weekend, I woke up with two naked dead hookers and yet another bloody kitchen knife. Thank God it's Monday, but I'm starting to get a little annoyed with this place....
Sorry to ramble on like that, how was yours?
Your imaginary friend.
I say "swell" or "snazzy" and people imitate me like there is something wrong with using different words.
Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
Third World Layabout
If you ask here in Costa Rica, they will tell you - which is a bit of a surprise the first time...
I only ask people about their weekend if I really care to hear the response, good or bad.
Coworker/friend gets: "Did you have a good weekend?" or "Do anything fun this weekend?" and I will stand and wait for a response.
Coworker I merely tolerate gets the drive-by: *while still walking past* "Hey. Mornin'". (not even "good" morning, which invites them to follow with a snarky "what's so good about it?" or other such nonsense.)
phony collective progress
"I set into motion a series of events that will end the world as we know it. Then I went on a bike ride and got a colonoscopy. I have pictures of both, wanna see?"
