Hey, how are you doing?

why do people greet each other with "hey, how are you doing?" when they really do not want to know how you are?

I ask this because I was greeted today with hey how are you. Instead of letting this person walk buy, i decided to tell them how I was doing today (just to see what would happen) It was interesting to see this person really did not want to know how I was doing, they were just being cordial...

I continued to talk about everything under the sun from getting up early in the morning, to how to work out fat around your mid section, to topics about kids... I know this person was not interested but I continued to talk just to see how long they would stand there while went on about "how I was doing" I'm still giggling, and I'm almost positive that person will not say anything more to me next time they make eye contact other than "Hi"

sometimes I find myself saying "hey, how are you doing" but then once they start saying anything other than fine i usually cut them off by walking away or saying "good" and THEN walking away.(no I'm not rude..) I don't really want to know how alot of people are doing, I guess it's a habit when you make eye contact with someone... funny thought to me, and wanted to share~
