Here’s what makes me grumpy.
People who say, “have a nice day.” Sometimes they substitute “great,” “good,” “blessed” for nice or how about the similar “have a good one.” Have a good one what?
When someone admonishes me to have a nice day it puts a lot of pressure on me. Take today for example. My only real duty today was to go to the post office. My visit started with a long line where, I swear, everyone was applying for a passport and spoke about five words of English. The postal workers were patient and polite and when it was finally my turn to buy some stamps, the woman who waited on me offered me a piece of candy and said, “Thanks, have a nice day.” I told her I couldn’t handle the pressure but thanks for the candy.
