Why do people ask you to pass their regards?
Posted 7/18/07
Have you ever been talking to a friend and all of a sudden they say something like
"Well tell your parents I said hi"
"Send my regards to your parents (name) ok?"
"Tell your parents we should go out for Dinner / Coffee some time"

Why do people do that... i mean its not that polite in my eyes and its not like you actually tell them

What is your view on this? Do you find this annoying like me?

I learnt a couple of years ago that in some circles "regards" as in "give them my regards" can be a threat.

I guess (threats aside) it's just one of those things that people say in social situations.

because...you're in front of him, and you're parents are far away, now like, he is NOT going to walk all the way to your parents if they are killometers away ince he has something he must do just to say hi, which is why he wants to indirectly remind your parents he thinks about them ( as friends) and also just pass them a little "hello" for later on. (there is a bit more than that, but i think you'll get hte message there)

i can understand if you don't get it but it's in NO WAY rude, on the contrary.

Knowing your friend's parents is really important. Other than just jerking around with your friend.
