That isn't supposed to be a one way question but that's how people take it most of the time. You'd be surprised how many people get kind of dumbfounded that you asked back, especially if you act like you care.Rafter S":3rioc0do said:People often respond to things like that without thinking. Like the checker at the grocery store asking "How are you?". When I'm asked that I usually respond with something out of the ordinary, like "Better than I deserve", "Getting better every day", "Not bad for an old fat man", or "If it was any better I couldn't stand it" just to see what reaction I'll get.
To me having someone ask how I'm doing and not check back on their state is self centered.
I'm tempted to start responding with Dave Ramsey's standard reply, "Better than I deserve"
