    Default how do you greet someone?

    what is your usual greeting when you see a friend/neighbor/stranger etc.

    for a friend i usually say: 'what's up'

    for a neighbor i say 'good day/morning/evening'

    for a stranger i say 'hello there.' or if i am being introduced to the stranger: 'nice to meet you'


    also what about when you say goodbye?

    for a friend i say 'later'

    for a neighbor i say 'see you soon'

    for a stranger i say 'goodbye' since i don't know if I'll see them again




    what are your usual greetings?

    I usually just go for the regular "Hello"
    But sometimes, I just sneak up behind them and shout "Hello" in their ear

    If it's my friends I generally do a stupid wave and say something ridiculous like "greetings fledglings". If it's other people I just smile and say "hi".

    Yeah... Ain't it refreshing to see people trying to learn how to be more polite by asking others input?

    So true!

    I say "aye!", "hey!", or "yo whatup?" to my friends and family, and "nice to meet you" to strangers.

    Usually just hey.
    On forums I greet newbs with witty jokes though.

    I'd either say 'hiya' or I'd just nod my head.

    Depending on the time of day it would be "Good Morning", "Good Afternoon" or "Good Evening". Then it would either be "Good Bye", occasionally a "Cheerio" or rarely a "Toodles".

    "Good day" because that's what my chem teacher says and it always sounds cool when he says it

    Because I am partly German, I'll go with the occasional "Guten Tag" just as a joke. I also like to say goofy things, so I'll say things like "Greetings, comrades!"

    But when I am serious, I'll just say "Hello" or "Good day".

    Well, my mother talked to a stranger. That's how she got the autograph of the dalai lama, and got to touch his hand

    I usually either go Yonichiwa (Yo + Konichiwa), hey, or "Ya! Genkide ya tsu teru?"

    To my neighbors: I don't greet neighbors
    To my friends: "Oh hey"
    To my family: "Hello"
    To teachers: "Hey"
    To strangers: "Hm"

    This is only if they were the first to greet though. I usually don't greet people first.
