(Fark)   I'm thinking of using a non-sequitor to greet various people. I was thinking something like "Brother" or "Boss". Maybe "Man". What non-sequitors do you use or have used on you?   (fark.com ) divider line

I... don't think calling someone "boss" or "man" or "brother" is a non sequitur.

I think you need to look up what non-sequitur means. It's easier if you know how to spell it.

Look, if you're REALLY going to do the non sequitur correctly, it should be "Brother", "Boss", "Herring", "I rode a train once."

Am I the only one who's never heard 'non sequitur' used in this way before? I was under the impression it was a logical fallacy by which the conclusion of an argument doesn't follow from it's premise; I don't understand it in this context...

Informal greetings are not non sequiturs.

So much this.

/Third person singular present indicative active, but deponent, so conjugated like a passive

Greet everyone as if you're from a P.G. Wodehouse story.

"What ho, Jeeves?"
"Pip-pip, Tuppy, old chap."
"How goes it, aged relative of mine?"

Curse of the Goth Kids: At first I was all, inigomontoya.jpg because calling somebody "hoss" isn't a non sequitur. But then I was like, philosoraptor.jpg. What's the word for that? Is it a salutation despite not being in a letter? Do you have to call it a "term of address?" Because that's cumbersome as fark.

/DNRTFT
//don't care enough to do that
///just thought you guys would want to know


Yeah I don't know the word for that either... I was thinking "sobriquet," but that seems inexact. Not as inexact as "non sequitur," but....

Also sir and ma'am pop up on occasion, people in England think I'm "taking the piss" when I use it sadly. Manners are dead.

I do actually answer the phone this way, and it catches a lot of people off guard.

Note: Try to avoid calling anyone "Boss", unless they're your actual boss. Referring to people as "Boss" who aren't your boss basically tells people that you've spent time in a Texas prison.
