My experience is that many people are just waiting for someone to "notice" and ask them and once they do the floodgates open. "I wasn't acting myself the whole day and nobody even noticed and asked me anything!"
hmm I hear
depends on the situation I guess
To be fair, Shviggers have positive aspects too.
very true and also not part of this story :)

Not worth getting into. Something that could mean things aren't okay but really doesn't need to mean that.

OMG, I was joking! I didn't want you to answer the question. Sorry

And therefore depends on how the situation is perceived when someone who cares is really only trying to help.

:D I was fairly certain
But truth is that what it was could affect what type of response would be appropriate.

Right. Or alternatively, is trying to satisfy their curiosity. It can be hard to know sometimes.

"Hey, I noticed <>. Is everything ok? If you'd like to speak about it, I'm always available. If you'd rather not, I totally understand. I didn't say anything."

"I don't mean to be nosy" is like "No offense, but..."

Okay, let me try this...

"Hey Yehuda57, I noticed your posts seem to be lacking substance recently, and your jokes are just not funny, and you seem to be more cranky than usual, and you are really not enjoyable to be around, and your breath smells. Is everything ok? If you'd like to speak about it, I'm always available. If you'd rather not, I totally understand. I didn't say anything."

 :P

Cereal bags that don't open neatly. I mean the ones that are impossible to open neatly, like Life.

Yup, though keeping a pair of scissors in the kitchen helps.

People who use info from DDF against you on other platforms >:( @Yehuda57

(On a serious note, I couldn't think of a way to redo it, and I didn't think the folks elsewhere are nearly as knowledgeable as those here on DDF...)
