Every time you meet someone, you are expected to wish someone, or say something that acknowledges their existence. Like you meet someone in the morning, you have to say good morning. I do not understand the logic behind this. There is no reason whatsoever for this madness. We all know it’s a morning. If you want to talk to a person, be creative, say something different. Tell people something they don’t know already. If you don’t want to talk to that idiot, do not do that.
We see a dog, we start doing dog gestures, when we meet humans, we start doing human gestures. This is total bullshit.
Some may call these basic manners, but basic manners don’t mean anything if the other person is not worthy of those manners. We should first talk to people and then figure out whether they are worthy of those good mornings or not and then wish good morning. By saying this to anyone and everyone, we are reducing the significance of a good morning or good evening or anything. I love people who come straight to the point. They don’t talk much, don’t cry much, just transactional humans. Perfect. We don’t need people with manners.
Manners mean restrictions and a total lack of emotions. They are a modern form of slavery mechanism used to dictate and control your behavior.
Good morning is still fine. People say good afternoon. Tell me one thing that is good about afternoon. It is hot, sticky, at times slimy and it is the worst time of the day. Only good thing that can happen in afternoon is sleep, but saying good afternoon means, you are not sleeping and hence the afternoon is fucked already. I go to a restaurant the person has to wish good afternoon. He does not mean it obviously. Why would you want to meet someone in the afternoon? He doesn’t want my goodwill. He wants my money.
That good afternoon is a way of draining my fucking wallet.
My question is, why do we feel the need to greet people? I mean, we greet people and expect that they greet back. If you are going to take the greeting back, then why greet in the first place. What are you trying to communicate here anyway? Nothing!!! It’s just slaves living their life in a funny way submitting to the system. Good morning mister blah blah blah!!! Your package is ready. Fuck off!!! You could have just told me that my package is ready and I would have packaged the shit out of it.
Another annoying thing people say is have a nice day. Why should I? What if I am already having a fucked up day and saying this is like rubbing salt on my already pestering wounds. What do you mean by have a nice day? If you talk to someone on a daily basis, I can still understand, but you talk to some person once in a blue moon, won’t you want him to have a nice life rather than just a day. These greetings have become nothing but meaningless punctuation marks. Why do we need them in the first place? It is this fucked up culture that has turned the Indian Whatsapp into the garbage that it is today. I mean everyone is dumping good mornings, afternoons and what not.
Life is already fucked up and greeting somebody is not going to make it better.
I remember, as a kid, when the teacher used to enter the class, we had to stand up and say “Good Morning Teacher”. Why? Why? Why? Don’t force someone to respect. The bitch is getting paid for her performance. Give her tips if you really like her. World will be such a better place the day we stop greeting each other.
Just imagine, if we start exchanging money instead of greetings and compliments. The world will make so much more sense. Nothing says Thank You better than money!!!
So, stop that stupid chit chat and those fake ass good mornings and please give me some money!!!
