Hi time

Today in the basement I ran into our semi-regular IT dude. So we gave each other a loud hi. Five minutes later I spotted him in the foyer. No hi's were given.

What's the expected duration of a work hi? Is it 24 hours? I think it is. Otherwise you'd be hi'ing left, right and centre. Is this a universal time thing? Are all cultures on a 24 hour hi?


  1. 24 hours I suppose... a smile and a nod is fine after you've already given a 'hi'... otherwise it feels a bit weird.

  2. I really hate the corridor pass nod. It seems so stupid. I generally try and look like I am white rabbiting so I can avoid doing it.


No comments needed, really.
