Thread: Tell them I said hi

  1. #1

    Default Tell them I said hi

    When ever you say "I am going to so and so's house" and the other person says "Say hi to them for me" How many of you actually do that? I do it every time I am asked to do so.

    I said yes, although that's not quite true. Sometimes it's better to just not to. But generally I will

    If I actually remember to, then sure.

    Absolutely not.

    1) I don't see the point.
    'Hello' is just a word to greet others with, a way of starting a conversation. (IIRC the word "hello" was created for using the telephone, something to say when you pick up!)

    2) When am I meant to do this?
    Straight away?
    "Hello Bob, and a hello from Susan too!"

    At the end of the conversation?
    "See ya later! Oh, and Susan said 'hi'"

    Somewhere in between?
    "If I may interject... Susan says hi."

    3) What do you want this information for?
    So you know that Susan has acknowledged your existence to me? I'm just not getting it.

    I mean if Gavin's cat spontaneously combusted, and I mentioned to Susan:
    "God, did you hear about Gavin's cat? I'm off to see him now in fact"
    And she says "Oh yeah, tricky business that. Tell him I'm sorry about it" then I might mention to Gavin later "Sorry about your cat dude, Susan and I feel bad for you" if I remember.

    I think this might be a female thing to do. It's the kind of thing that guys don't care about.

    I don't do it unless conversation gets a little silent between us.

    If it's gone quiet for a while, I'll just throw in a "Oh, and [person] says hi" to get things moving again. What I enjoy about this conversational passe is the other person may divulge their thoughts on the absent-greeter. Whether negative or positive, it certainly gives you something to talk about.

    ...or maybe I'm just nosy?
