呷飽未?/Taiwanese Greeting: Have you eaten?

媽媽說,臺灣問候語是「呷飽未?」而標準回應是:「啊你還沒睡哦?」

有天晚上十一點左右,在便利店裡聽到一位男士跟一位女士的對話:

女:「這麼晚了還沒睡哦?」

男:「你還沒睡,我怎麼捨得睡?」

女:「你真的有睡覺嗎?我從來沒看過你睡覺耶…」

男:「我也從來沒看過你洗澡耶…你有洗澡嗎?」

女:「…你…你…我要叫你老婆管管你啦!」

男:「我真的沒看過你洗澡嘛!」

這時候,全店的人都笑翻了。我忍不住好奇想看看那位男士是啥德行,剛好跟他的眼光對上。

「我說的是真的嘛!我真的沒看過她洗澡呀!」

Mother says, the standard greeting for Taiwanese peasants are "Jia ba ve?" (Have you eaten?), and the reply "A li a ve kun o?" (Yet have you not gone to bed?)

One night, around 23:00, I over heard the following conversation in a convenient store.

Woman: Have you not yet gone to bed?

Man: I couldn't since you haven't.

Woman: Do you ever sleep? I have never seen you sleep.

Man: Do you ever take a shower? I have never seen you taking a shower.

Woman: ... you... you... I am going to ask your wife to dicipline you.

Man: Honestly, I am telling the truth. I have never seen you taking a shower.

At this moment, everyone in the store were laughting our heads off. On my way out, I couldn't help taking a glance at the man. He just caught my sight and said "I am telling the truth!"
