When did telling someone to have a nice day become so complicated?
Whenever someone says to me “You have a nice day” I always think they are giving me a compliment. I instinctively want to respond by saying “Thanks, your day is pretty nice too” or some such nonsense.
Then, to make matters worse, some people try to turn the goodbye into a contest. You tell them to have a nice day, so they say to you “Have a nice weekend!” Come on people – just say “you too” and be on your way.
The only solution I can think of is to tell them “Have a nice eternity” and quickly walk away. Surely there has to be a better way…any suggestions?
On a semi-related note, here’s a video to brighten your day. It may not be exactly the same situation, but hey, it’s a good excuse to watch a Brian Regan video.
