   Do not ask people how was their night, most people find it offending. You do not know what might have happened during the night. In other part of the world, if you ask some people “How was your night”,

 They feel you are intruding their privacy. 

  So after greeting “Good morning” if you feel like adding other words you can go ahead and say “Hope you slept well”. 

   I hope you learnt sonething new, please like, share, comment and follow.
