    Replying to your hello

    Hello,

    How do you start answering the phone? You may say hello or perhaps you would rather use your name. Anyway, which one makes your audience glad as they hear your sound?

    Suppose that your best friend sent you a letter full of many warm and kind words. However, he/she missed their hello at the beginning of their note, instead, they started with your name and addressed you as their dear friend. You might have felt a little bit sad while reading your friend's letter with out hello and simply seen a huge gap amid a large number of letters.

    Having experienced, You met someone else for example, another your friend somewhere and heard everything from his mouth but saying hello. You may here consider them a little rude and impolite.

    Saying hello is very short, however, it conveys an ocean of messages based out of your heart and mind and indicateds somehow your polite manner.

    You can try how saying or omitting hello can impress on your audience, and also how your hearers send their reflection to you as a mirror in which you see yourself.

    Is this an extended question that you want discussion on, or simply an essay?

    How do you answer your phone? Do you do it with a pleasant 'Hello' or perhaps get right to it by just saying your name. Does saying a hello really matter these days or does it sound redundant?

    Suppose that your best friend sent you a letter full of many warm and kind words. However, he/she missed their hello at the beginning of their note, instead, they started with your name and addressed you as their dear friend. You might have felt a little bit sad while reading your friend's letter with out hello and simply seen a huge gap amid a large number of letters.

    Suppose your best friend sends you a letter filled with kind words. Despite the affectionate opening, you sense a void reading it because the hello was missed at the beginning. Even though you are addressed as a dear friend along with your name, the lack of a hello right upfront leaves a gap for a pinch of introductory warmth in a letter otherwise rich with heartfelt words of endearment.

    Having experienced, You met someone else for example, another your friend somewhere and heard everything from his mouth but saying hello. You may here consider them a little rude and impolite.

    Having noted the consequence of a missing hello in a written letter, you meet another friend later and hear him talk about many things but the hello. You instantly realize how the absence of a hello might leave an impression of being rude or impolite.

    Saying hello is very short, however, it conveys an ocean of messages based out of your heart and mind and indicateds somehow your polite manner.

    Greeting someone with a hello appears to many as an insignificant salutation. But, in fact, taking the time to say hello conveys and reiterates that you are polite and kind-mannered. Conversely, the undesirable effect of your missing hello is felt immediately whether meeting in person or writing to someone thousands of miles away.

    You can try how saying or omitting hello can impress on your audience, and also how your hearers send their reflection to you as a mirror in which you see yourself.
    Note: I am always a learner.
