How ya doin? Hi. Howdy. Hello there. What’s up? How are you? Hey. Aloha. All are forms of greeting in the United States of America.
People from outside of the area think that people from New Jersey and New York only say, “How ya doin’?” No, not everyone. That affectation doesn’t apply to everyone but my son who seems to proudly want to sound regional!
Me? I tend to say, “Hey,” or “Hiya.” Occasionally, “Greetings.” I know. I am weird.
How about where you live? What is the usual greeting?
