Things you should never say to me – part 1

Part of being socially backward is asking stupid questions. an example is “where’ve you been” question.

the scene gets repeated almost every occasion, you meet an old acquaintance who after the usual greetings asks “where’ve you been” = وينك = من زمان ما شفناك = وين مختفيين

What is this question!

I think it is ridiculous, simply because (1) this question should be asked to someone who you have a good relation with, not mere acquaintance, (2) the question gives the assumption that the questioner was available / reachable, while the fact is that same person was out of sight, meaning there were no attempts of his/her side to outreach, and (3) one needs to stop admonishing the acquaintances, basically there is no space for this kind of interaction. They are not friends.
