Asking about Others

From Twitter


In English-speaking culture it’s customary to ask about someone when s/he asks about you. Not doing can be considered rude:


Jon: Hi, Don! How are you?

D: I’m good, thanks for asking. And you?

J: Great! Thanks!

Bad: J: How are you, Don?

D: Good!

The feeling could be: 

‘Gee, that guy is self-centered’, or ‘Doesn’t he care about how I am doing?’
