At work I frequently have customers who, when I say “Good afternoon,” often say “How are you,” immediately followed by “I want $100 cash back,” without waiting for me to respond. (Yes, I’m a bank teller.) If you’re not going to wait for me to say “Fine, and you?” then why are you asking? If you’re going to pretend that you care, follow through. If not, then just tell me what you want and move on. I’ll respect either of those, but I won’t respect the the halfway interruption crap. Just wanted to state this grievance. Geez, people.
