I was having lunch with an old coworker before I had to go to work today. We had a good chat, talking about what we did this summer, catching up, and having a few laughs. We finished our food, paid our bill, and left a generous tip (because that’s what you do when you’re in the industry). As we parted ways, he told me to say hello to everyone at work for him. I told him I would. Then I went to work and proceeded to not tell anyone hello for him. I never planned on saying hello for him. I don’t think he expected me to actually say hello for him. Say hello for me is an expression, not instructions.
What would happen if I actually said that Dave says hi and Chris said hi back? Do I text Dave and let him know that Chris said hi? Should I wait until I see Dave in person again to tell him that Chris said hi? It all seems like too much work. I don’t want to be the middleman in a back and forth conversation that doesn’t involve me. I’m not an owl. So yeah, be aware of that. I probably won’t say hi for you. I lied. Sorry, not sorry.
