You should say "peace" before you evaluate a situation. That way everyone will know where you’re coming from. If you’re honest and say "peace" before you evaluate a situation out loud, everyone will know where you stand.
When you say "peace," you end up making a really bad pun and you hear somebody say “Heyo!” (ひょう) You look at the people around you and try to evaluate who said heyo, but you can’t tell. You start talking again when somebody exclaims “That’s what she said” and another person shouts “Heyo!” once again, but you still can’t evaluate who’s saying these things.
