" Have a nice day." A sign of a somewhat more civil society -
I've been noticing the phrase a lot on DU messages, in context suggesting it's meant as a curt dismissal. For a while I found the sarcasm annoying (not being a New Yorker), but I guess I'm mellowing - it's a lot better than "Go Cheney yourself!" Perhaps we're moving more towards civility.

2. I just changed my sig line before I read this post.
It said: "Have a nice day"

Is that a coincidence or what?

3. I wonder if we are telling someone to have a nice day or hoping they do
I hope you have a nice day! or Hey, you work real hard at having a nice day.

My wife and I say to each other as we go to work, "have a day"

4. There's this guy that comes into the school where I work
I tell him to have a nice day when he is getting ready to leave. He says "I don't want to, don't tell me what to do"

What a Cheney off!!
