    Question What should my reply be?

    Hi, This question may sound stupid, but I really don't know how I should reply to it. I am a cashier, and at my work if any of my colleagues comes to my register, he/ she says hey! wassup? or how is it going? I don't know what should my reply be for the first question. And, for the latter, I say "good" but I don't know what question should I ask? Like, should it be "what about you" or " at your side". I am really confused. Please help me. I'd be very thankful to you.

    Replies for 'whassup?'
    'not much - just work' or to be funny you can say 'my rent.'
    Replies for 'how's it going?'
    'pretty good - and you? or 'it's going well - and you?'

    Re: What should my reply be?

    Some possible responses:
    "Same old, same old. How about you?"
    "Hanging in there. What's up with you?"
    "I'm doing OK, how about you?"
    "So far, so good. How is your day?"

    If you're feeling particularly good or happy, you could say:
    "If I was any better, I'd be twins. How are you doing?"

    I am doing well, and yourself?

    I am doing great! How about you?

    Everything is almost the same. What's new with you?
