2 acquaintances see eachother

1: Whats up?
2: Hey.
1: How are you?
2: Horrible. I'm more depressed than I ever have been in my life. And its not from any personal problems or anything like that, I'm depressed because of the current state of the world. A human's worth as a person is only measurable by how much money or fame he has. No one is anything to anyone anymore. Nobody thinks of others first, us being ourselves are more important than everyone else on the planet. Nobody cares about me and I don't care about anyone. We're told that to be happy in life we need money, so most of us ignore our dreams and we go to college to get a decent job so we can pay for nice things that have no meaning. We all get in our metal coffins and make the hour+ commute to go to our shitty job that we hate but for some reason thought that it would make us happy. When we shut the car door, we enter our own world. We completely ignore the people in the cars around us. We forget that they are people like us, and that they have problems too. Everyone is so self-conscious that they aren't themselves, they are what they believe the person sitting across the table wants them to be. Everyone is suffering from depression and anxiety because we are all so worried about what others think of us. Every morning when I wake up I have to convince myself not to take my life by fooling myself into thinking my life has value, that someone somewhere cares about me. When really if you think about it, none of our lives mean anything. Everything has been done. Everything has been explored. Everything has been figured out. What could I possibly ever do to make someone care about me? And the worst part is nobody talks about this. I don't know if its just never crossed their minds (how could it not)or if they're just ignoring it because it's all too much to bare. We all just meander through our...
1: (Interrupts 2) Whoa whoa whoa! When someone asks you "How are you?" the correct response is good. I didn't want you to actually tell me how you were. Thats just something Ive been taught to say to make you think I care. I could care less about your problems.
2: Oh, ok.
1: Well I should be going. Have a nice day!
2: You too! See you later!
