Greeting Someone you Know" Hey John, how have you been?" " Hi Bob, how are you?" " Hi Nancy, what have you been up to?" " Andy, it's been a long time, how are you man?" If you meet someone unexpectedly, you can say, " Hey Jack, it's good to see you. What are you doing here?" or " What a surprise. I haven't seen you in a long time. How have you been?" If you see the person at a restaurant, you can say, " Do you come to this restaurant often?" Or at the movie theatre, " What movie did you come to see?" Appropriate responses: " Hi Steve, my name is Mike. It is nice to meet you as well." " I heard a lot about you from John. He had a lot of good things to say." " Wow. How long has it been? It seems like more than a year. I'm doing pretty well. How about you?" A typical response to this type of greeting is simple. " Not too bad." If asked what you have been up to, you can respond with, " Same ole same ole." Or, " The same as usual." Here are some other example responses. " I'm pretty busy at work these days, but otherwise, everything is great." " I'm doing very well." " I finally have some free time. I just finished taking a big examination, and I'm so relieved that I'm done with it." Restaurant Responses " I've been here a couple of times, but I don't come on a regular basis." " I come pretty often. This is my favorite restaurant." " I can't believe we haven't seen each other before. I come here at least twice a week." Movie Response " I came here to see Matrix Revolution.
