You're a crab.
Call me crabby, but I HATE mornings at work. Why? Because I hate the overly cheery "Good mornings!" and "How are yous?" and "Did you have a good evenings?" in little sing-songy voices. It just all seems so fake.

I am not a morning person. Is is so wrong for me to just want to walk down the hall to my office and get to my desk without being assaulted with niceties?? Seriously, I will talk and be genuinely nice after I get my mug o' ice water and get settled at my desk. Just give me a few minutes of silence while I do those things!

Now, it's a little different if it's American Idol season. I WILL talk about that first thing on the day after an episode...depending on who you are and how you approach it. Otherwise, shut the heck up and come see me after my morning snack and (company) email check.

So, would I be a hypocrite if I said, "GOOD MORNING!" to you all right now. Yeah, I thought so. :)

    I'm so with you on this, I've always hated mornings and cringe when people say that to me and expect a response back.

    After sixteen years of working in the same place I try to slip in and out of the company unnoticed. Most new employees don't know I'm a manager until much later because I just pass everyone by, however there's a few choice group of people I like and to those I feel a "good morning" or "how's it goin'" is in order.
    Oh and by the way GOOD MORNING ANGIE.

    HAHAHAHA! I totally get that! At my old job, this one moron would come and greet me all cheerily at 8:05 in the morning - and I don't really get going until about 9. I wanted to strangle him.
