How many times are you gonna...

OK, here are a few thought...

How many times are you supposed to say Hi to people in one day. At work, while walking through the halls I see the same faces all day long. There is one lady in particular I see at least 6 or 7 times in a day and each time she says "Hi, How are you?"...every time...Now here is what I was thinking. Either, you do not really care how I am , or you have the same question milling around in your head as well. Here is the tip, The first time I see you, say "Hi, How are you?" once, and then subsequent times we pass a smile will do.

How come when someone sends nasty office email they always end it with Thanks! What is the deal with the nice-nasty politeness? Why say -Thanks when you really want to say "Fall off you cushy chair and die." or "Thanks for being an example of someone who is high quality stupid." Personally, when we are having an email war, I'd rather you end the email with a period(.) not a thanks, like I work for you or something. So here is the question, Am I rude for not adding the -Thanks at the end of meaning less emails that do not require such an ending? How many times is the obligatory thanks supposed to be used?

Where are these questions in the office etiquette rule books? Just a few thoughts for the day.
