I always treated it separate from "How are you"

Eg: "Hey, what's up?"
"Nothing much. u?"
"Ah, same. How are you?"
"Not bad. What about you?"
"Okay. How was the weekend?"

And on and on and on. Small talk. Gives me chills.

I am glad I posted this, I knew it would be a funny thread! And I'm glad I haven't committed a huge faux pas by actually answering the question in detail every time!

Oh, and nbcrusader, that's very encouraging, thanks!

When I do things like greeting and what not. I leave it simple and usually just say 'Sup? or 'Sup yo? short for what's up.

"Not much" is my standard reply. I have a very unexciting life.

i think you're supposed to say "not much, you?"

i either forget the "you" part altogether or say "and yourself" causing them to laugh at me for sounding like a dork

Yeah, I feel the same way. Lame small talk like that is annoying.

I usually just respond with "not much...what's up with you?" Then the other person will answer "not much" or something similar, and we'll be on our separate ways.
