'Greetings' (Pilot)

Posted by Kill_Life , 05 January 2010 · 744 views

Pilot
Greetings all,

So this is my first blog, it took me a while before I found out how to make it.
But here I am!

Usually, the first episode of a serie is called 'Pilot' (right?), so I added 'Pilot' in the title of this first entry!

So, what did I want to talk about:
Greetings.

It's something I usually use to greet someone.
There are many ways:
- Hello
- Hi
- Yo
- What do you want?
- ...
I prefer the word 'Greetings'.

Why am I talking about this?
Well... Is 'greetings' acceptable as a greeting?
The reason why I'm asking is: I was playing a different game and was trying to buy something. Some guy was selling it and I wanted to know if there was an offer for the object already.
So I do as I usually do: Greetings, is there an offer for object X already?
Some chatting, blah blah blah.
I went on a different account and I saw that guy was buying something which I had. So: Greetings, how much are you paying?
His first reply: Hello. Are you (name of my other character)?
I was slightly shocked. How did he know? Not that it mattered, but I was completely surprised, the names of both characters have nothing in common either.
So I asked him: Yes. How did you know?
And his reply was: No one else uses greetings.

I was completely surprised no one else used it.

So, can 'greetings' be used as a greeting?

Yes it can be used as a greeting although you sound like an old[bleep]

KL xD WTF ILU OMG TBH BBQ <3:
That's like saying "gegroet" (literal translation) in Dutch. Which sounds very old fashioned in my eyes.(Dunno about Belgium, could be different there :P)

I Just say hi, hoi, or hey. (Irl almost only "hoi")
I worry for you Kill Life, sincerely.

Greetings, btw.
Yey, Felix, you're the first, feel honoured!

So it's an old 'hello'. That's oké, I'm old anyways :)

And you worry too much Rainy.

Greetings!
Yeah no one says greetings. It's an accepted greeting it just takes that much less effort to type hi or hey than it does greetings.

That's like saying "gegroet" (literal translation) in Dutch. Which sounds very old fashioned in my eyes.(Dunno about Belgium, could be different there :P)

Nope, people don't use gegroet here lol, it's just... weird. So yeah, I like it, keep on doing it lol.
You're odd <.<

You're odd <.<
