Top Ten Ways To Say Hi

It’s been a little while since my last top ten list. I thought I’d share this one with you. These are ways to say “hi” to someone. I do this for your benefit. They are in no particular order.

  1. Saying “Hi”
  2. Saying “Hello” (Although, according to Bitsy, this is no longer acceptable speech.)
  3. Saying the other person’s name (ie. “Bill”) (Receiver says the first person’s name back to them. It’s good encouragement in remembering names.)
  4. Saying “How’s it going?” (No answer needed. You simply return this question with the same. It means “Hi.”)
  5. Saying “What’s up?” (See: “How’s it going?” Can also be done with an old, Budweiser commercial twist.)
  6. Saying “Good morning/afternoon/evening” (Simply repeat the same back to the person. This is a polite way of saying “hello.”)
  7. Head nod (Again, a simple head nod back will suffice.)
  8. The wave (This is a sure-fire way to make someone feel uncomfortable from a distance. They aren’t sure if you’re waving at them or someone behind them and, if far enough away, can’t tell who you are.)
  9. The finger gun (Quite possibly the lamest way to say “hello.” This should be saved for moments of complete lack of self-respect. If you find yourself on the receiving end there is no need for a response. Just keep on walking.)
  10. My all-time favorite way to say “hi” (I was reminded of this yesterday): “Brothers don’t shake hands. Brothers gotta hug!” (Good for any and all occasions, whether or not you are actually related.)

That’s it! I suggest you start using these (and others) right away. 🙂
