From a reader:
Something that my American coworkers seem to be really confused about. This may be more of a cockney thing, but I think it’s worth noting.
When an English person greets you with “Hi, you alright?” It means, in English- ‘hi, how are you?’
Americans hear ‘hi, what’s wrong…you look like there is something wrong with you’
The English usually omit the “Hi” part, which adds to the confusion.Source: english2english

A telephone tower in Stockholm, Sweden, which was used between roughly 1887 and 1913. About 5000 telephone lines were connected here. After 1913, the tower remained as landmark until 1953 when it was torn down as a result of a fire. Photo courtesy of the Tekniska Museet.
