What Is Your Response To “Good Morning, How Are You Doing?”

It was early and I was out of town, sitting on a bus on my way to the airport. As everyone got on they said, “Good morning, how are you doing?” to the bus driver and other passengers. The responses were interesting. A number of people had standard answers:

  • Great, I have never had a bad day in my life!
  • I couldn’t possibly be any better!
  • Not bad.
  • Great. And you?
  • I am doing fine. How about you?

Those were a few of the answers I heard during the 3 minute wait for the bus to leave for the airport.

You might be thinking, “What does Merrill say?” My normal response is:

  • I am doing well. How are you doing this morning?

It is interesting to see how different everyone’s response is.

  • What is the best response you have heard?
  • What do you say?
  • Does your response differ depending on your mood?
  • Is there a response you really like or dislike?

I look forward to reading your comments.
