Brady Quinn said something yesterday that I've often wondered myself, and posted about here. Why do people ask how you're doing, yet continue to walk past you as you answer? I awkwardly learned no one really gives a damn several years ago on a repeated basis.

It was tough. I think it was an eerie feeling after a win because you don’t think that you can win in this situation. The one thing people can hopefully try to take away, I guess, is the relationships they have with people.

I know when it happened, I was sitting and, in my head, thinking what I could have done differently. When you ask someone how they are doing, do you really mean it? When you answer someone back how you are doing, are you really telling the truth? We live in a society of social networks, with Twitter pages and Facebook, and that’s fine, but we have contact with our work associates, our family, our friends, and it seems like half the time we are more preoccupied with our phone and other things going on instead of the actual relationships that we have right in front of us. Hopefully people can learn from this and try to actually help if someone is battling something deeper on the inside than what they are revealing on a day-to-day basis.

I'll take that over "no problem" as a response to "thank you." Thank you is not an apology. No problem is a response to an apology.

Your generation can't speak English.

English has turned into acronyms on a cell phone text. How do these little fuckrs ever get out and get laid with no communication skills to develop some kind of game? It makes me want to cry, Zombie.

I spent a number of year, traveling the country and there are many places where, you would never be asked how are you doing. You would never hear, good morning or afternoon when passing somebody in the hall or sidewalk. Thankfully, there are places left in this country, where, polite greatings and acknowledgements happen between even strangers.

I find that places where these greetings, even if more out of habit than actually caring, coincide with areas where people tend to care and take interest in their neighbors. Many places I have gone people walk around in a zone, they ignore everybody around them. They can live across the hall from somebody for years, and don't know each others names and have never spoken to each other.

How you doing. Good yourself. Is a simple little courtesy. I don't want to live someplace where even that little courtesy is gone. Because with its lose, we lose much more as a society.

I don't know. Would I rather live in a place that doesn't find silence awkward, or live in a place where we fear that silence so we ask each other questions that we don't care the answer to?

The only people I ask "how are you" are those people that I don't actually give a damn how they are. I never ask my friends that question, because I already cared enough to know the answer.

They neither have game nor they get laid. The younger generation is quite sad. Makes me want to cry as well.

I especially feel bad for your daughters. Instead of worrying about their would be suitors' morals, you'll be worrying if they'll bore your daughters to death.

Keep in mind that the generation you speak of so derogatory is the result of the piss poor generation that raised them. So, rip that generation, not the one that suffers from the lack of proper leadership from its elders.
