What is the rational behind common greetings?

"Hey Joe, how you doing?"

As I pass by Joe, will he really have the time to tell me how he is in fact doing? Will he want to tell me how he is doing? Actually, I'm not doing to well seeing as my mother died two months ago and I still haven't gotten over a disastrous love affair. I did just eat a good lunch. It was chicken noodle soup. My favorite. And that has me feeling better, although I have a doctor's appointment later today which I don't think I'll be able to make, since my car has been acting up lately. Additionally, I still can't for the life of me understand Galileo.

No, Joe won't say that. Instead he'll say, "Good" or "I'm doing well."

And then he'll ask me how I am.

And you'll say "oh, good, good"

although you're on top of the world, they had philly steak sandwiches for lunch, you have all your lab props ready for afternoon class and your Thomas reading ready for theology, and you got those two volumes of manga you forgot you ordered from
