Someone who, uncomfortable with social interaction, copes by communicating with every available cliché they can think of.
"Hi Hank, how's it going?"
"Heyyy Bob...long time no see..i'm not too poor...ya know, can't complain. Keepin' out of trouble, -still doin' a little bit of this and that...gotta make hay while the sun shines, if ya catch my drift...well...gotta shake a leg... -don't be a stranger."
-(Hank is a status quoter)
