Yep! When people ask how you are they really don't want to know. This is just a pleasantry. But some see this as an opening to tell you about all of there misfortunes that they really didn't want to hear about from the beginning. Getting back . . . save that for someone who really wants to know, cares about you and can offer a solution or just a shoulder to cry on.

And unfortunately those twenty percent are always around us. : -(

great quote

Sorta sad

Sad but basically true.
