I am glad I am not the only one annoyed by the habit of people greeting you by asking questions they do not care to know the answer to.  Those of us who actually care about honesty in language face a neverending battle.
Sometimes I will greet someone with my customary "Good morning" or "Good afternoon" only to get a reply of "Fine thanks, and you?"  It is obvious that the person is completely clueless, running on habit rather than engaging with reality, but these encounters still leave me somewhat disoriented.
