Workplace small talk

After thorough testing, I can’t recommend this particular small-talk template:

Me: How’s it going?

Coworker: It’s going.

Me: Well, that’s better than it being stopped.

Coworker: silence

    I’m a believer that new and different exchanges should be used more frequently. It sure beats the usual bullcrap:

    Person: “How you doing?”
    Me: “Good. How are you?”
    Person: “Good. Thanks.”

    Next time, I’m going to try:

    Person: “How are you?”
    Me: “Just getting over a bout of depression, but I’m alright. Not suicidal anymore. Internet porn can really change your outlook on the evening. How are you?”
    Person: “Uh….OK I guess.”
    Me: “Good. Ya know, I always thought your mother was a really attractive woman. Great ass. Is she 60 now?”
    Person: “Uh…She’s 55.”
    Me: “Well I bet she’ll still look great when she’s 60. Have a good one!”
