I heard it is a normal way of greeting in America to say "How do you do?." I find that very strange as it's a question I hardely ever ask, because I only ask it when I haven't seen someone for a long time. I've been told you're not even supposed to reply to "How do you do?", just repeat the question. Strange people.

Where I live, I rarely get asked "How do you do?" but if I was, I think I would just respond with "How do you do?" as well, even though it seems strange. I do get asked "How are you?" every time I deal with someone in retail. As it has been said, the response to that one is in the form "I'm (fine|good|great|ok)\. How are you\?". The other person is then to respond in the form "I'm (fine|good|great|ok)\. Thanks for asking\.".

Or is it "I'm (fine|good|great|ok); how are you\?" and "I'm (fine|good|great|ok); thanks for asking\."?

It's not English, dood. It's human communication and social interaction. It's a little script. We all know how it goes, so we have some manner of socially interacting with people WE HAVE NEVER EVEN SEEN BEFORE. That's actually pretty neat!

I take it by your phrasing of "deal with someone in retail" that you've never actually had such a job? I have. And it is sometimes one's job to greet customers. I assure you, if you are amiable enough to get out a "Fine; thanks," you don't need to ask how they are or engage in further conversation or even stop walking. They offered a greeting; acknowledge it and acknowledge them as a fellow human being (who probably dislikes the exchange as much as you if not more - they've been at it for HOURS after all) and you're pretty much good.

There are only a few possibilities:
a) The person following the script hates it as much as you do or more,
b) The person following the script is entirely apathetic to the interaction,
c) The person following the script is actually somewhat to very interested in your answers.

(Super sorry if I sound like a judgmental prick or if it seems like I'm telling you to shut the fuck up and play nice. Neither is my intent; I'm kind of thinking out loud with my fingers more than anything else right now.)

For most daily interaction as you go about your local business, probably not. Probably a less wicked cool thing if you're in a small town or a new country. I live around Boston, so that sort of biased me a bit there. I am ALWAYS interacting with people I've never met before.

And "How do you do?" sounds much more proper British than it does American, to me. I don't specifically recall encountering the phrase, but I ever have I probably parsed it as just a general purpose "How are you? / How're you doing? / How's it going?".

I don't think I've ever heard 'how do you do?' actually used. I know one thing that comes up a lot from Americans in the UK is the 'You alright?'/'Alright?' greeting (where the response pretty much is just repeating the question). You get a lot of people not realising it's just a standard greeting, and thinking they must look not okay, since everyone keeps asking them if they're alright...

I like "Alright?" since that it's really symmetrical. The question is also an answer to the answer that is a question.

'Alright?' is also good for when you pass people on the street, because you can both get it in before you're past each other without having to slow down or stop.

Not really a semi-colon situation: I'd use a comma.

"I'm fine, how are you?"

A full-stop also works but perhaps implies the 'how are you' was given after a slight pause, as if you suddenly remembered yourself and decided to return the inquiry.

"I'm fine. How are you?"

A question as a greeting when you pass someone is not how it works in Dutch. A "hi" or "hello" perhaps (the Dutch equivalents of course), but in most cases just a nod of recognition. "Hi, how are you?" without stopping for a quick chat is virtually never used. Not expecting an answer is absolutely never the case.

So yeah, there are different scripts.

edit: I've even completely ignored someone's "how are you" before because the "hi"'s had been exchanged, and I wasn't expecting anything anymore, and as a result I wasn't listening anymore.

Me:... (thinking)
Me:...
Me: I guess I'm hanging in there. (or something to that effect)
Them: Well, that's good.

I know I'm late on this, but if you do need that release, find a video or a song that triggers the sad and play it til you can cry. There are certain songs that just always always manage this for me - the most recent example is this.
