SMALL TALK QUESTIONS NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE ANSWERS TO

There are certain things people ask each other to make conversation that I don't believe they really want the answers to.
  1. What are you doing for Thanksgiving?
    This is asked as an excuse to tell you about their amazing traditions, but they really don't care about yours
  2. What are you doing for Christmas?
    Same explanation as Thanksgiving
  3. Anything related to your wedding plans unless they're in the wedding
    How are the plans going? Where are you/did you get married? What are you doing for your honeymoon? These are all just to make conversation. They don't really care about the answers.
  4. How's work going?
    Unless they work with you or in a similar job in the same industry, nobody wants to hear your work stories
  5. How was your vacation?
    They weren't on the vacation. Nobody wants to hear every detail about how much fun you had not working
