I work with mental health professionals and if anyone in my office meant it when they asked that question or gave honest responses we would never get any work done.

I mean it, you really never know what a person is going through and talking to get something off their chest could make a huge difference on their outlook on life.
I mean it or I don't say it. Sometimes I am labled an asshole for doing so but I honestly don't care, I think asking someone somehting you don't care says something is wrong with you. Don't live your life trying to be nice, genuinely be nice or stfu, last thing poeple need is fake garbage crap. People are smart, they know when you don't actually care, and thats when you recieve typical boring crap responses.
Don't let poeple's answer affect you, just listen, learn something about them, or maybe even yourself. When your time is up here on earth or you get older you'll understand more.
We all need to remember we aren't the only ones on the planet and a lot of time poeple are dealing with bigger demons than we are. If you're not humble in this life you'll never know happiness.
Funny how the stoner and the dying has the best/mot similar reponse.

As far as someone asking me that... depends on how well I know them. For the vast majority of people, I would just reply "fine" even if there was an issue in my life.
In general though, most people only ask that out of politeness and don't expect to have you unload your problems on them...
