I've stopped saying "good morning" a while ago and have since replaced it with mornin' instead. It's slightly more casual and is more acceptable towards morning grouches. It's also easier for my zombie-state to say.

I'm a believer in the "Mornin" cause I'm not a morning person, and I like to let people assume the "good" if they want to.

Agreed, as an ex gas station am shift cashier I would have assholes say "er, what's good about it?!" Whenever I said good morning. So many times I wanted to say "look asshat, just because you hate where your life is going right now doesn't give you an exclusive pass to be a rude asshole to people trying to be nice to you."

Nah, now I just say mornin' and people don't get so triggered by it. Sad really.

Where I live, a lot of people say "Howdy". I can't quite bring myself to say that, maybe because I'm not a 70-year-old bowlegged bullrider, but I do like the sound of it. I tend towards "how's it going?"

mornin' is less formal and tends to be perceived more positively be millennials.
