Варианты “How are you” и “fine, thanks, and you”

Хочу поделиться списочком вариаций на тему. Сделан в помощь ученице, в чью должностную обязанность входит встречать иностранных гостей. Хочется, чтоб она с первых же слов, с первого же момента разговора держала себя естественно. А естественность требует разнообразия, а не механического прохождения ритуала.

Just a day. Sitting in the office answering calls and checking ticket prices. What have I done to deserve this?!
