A lot of people don’t know, but this is a good time to educate ourselves. Asking people how their night was means that you want to know what they were up to sexually or otherwise, the night before. Oh, don’t act surprised. As if you will not listen eagerly when they tell you about the sex they had.
Anyway, here are 7 places you should not use “How was your night?” as a greeting. Please listen to us, before you put yourself in trouble.
1. In your office
Or any formal setting for that matter. Imagine asking your spirikoko boss how his/her night went. Hmm, you’re asking for erotica on an early Monday morning. *Laughs in sermon and sack letter*
2. In emails.
“Dear Fred, how was your night?” does not sound as posh as you think it is. Imagine Fred turning red in the face at your audacity. Stick to simple greetings. “I hope your day is going well?”; “I trust this email meets you well.” The email may or may not meet him well, but at least you’re not asking him offensive questions.
3. On the bus.
Why are you even asking random strangers how their night was? Turn to me with that kind of question and I will serenade you with an epic of how I battled multiple demons in my sleep. Believe me.
4. In a meeting
Refer to point one above.
5. With complete strangers.
Honestly, maybe not ask people “How was your night?” Just say good morning and go your way.
