    I always think “have a good day” is a bit confrontational. Why is this bastard telling me to have a good day? Are they in charge of my worldly outlook today? Who have they been talking to? They could at least say please.

    “Have a good day”.

    “I am, what makes you think I’m not?”

    “Oh I just thought...”

    “What, that I wasn’t having a good day? Who are you to presume I’m not and then take it upon yourself to command me to have a good day”

    “I wasn’t, I...”

    “You were, and you’re a liar”

    And so on.

    It is, you are right. Not that I mind confrontational but I prefer aggressive to passive aggressive. It definitely stinks of passive agvressivism.

    Come on now Pete, you know it's uncool to objectify women.



    How fit would you say? 9/10?
    C'mon now, no review scores around these parts, only Recommended, Essential or Avoid.

    I've never heard this phrase before. Was she a native English speaker?

    Certainly something I'd expect an American yoga teacher to say.

    I would have asked if they know anyone with good weed, it's all shit around here at the moment, £10 a gram for dry seedy shite.

    But yeah, that's definitely a greeting a stoner would come up with

    Eastern European I think. She was kind of yoga hippyish. I will find out and report back

    @smoothpete it is fine in that it is not obviously morbid or creepy but it feels like a pointless affectation I have picked up and has the air of both Americanism and insincerity.

    Maybe I should replace it with something better, something more British. Something like "have a better than average day", or "things can only get better".
    Just add 'luv' at the end all will be well.

    Or confuse them by smiling broadly and mumbling “prick” at the end.

    I bet it is one of those things people don't even really listen to and one could get away with it. Some of them are picks so they probably deserve it.

    where do we stand on 'have a good one'...i am curious for no particular reason...

    Again, seems like a presumption that the person concerned is or will have a shit one.

    I think I have concluded that goodbye is probably all that is required. Prick can be added as necessary.

    That's my go to line. I think its because it shows an absolute bare minimum of caring or effort.

    I just realised my sentence construction indicates that the person is a shit one. Probably true.

    I was trying to remember how I used to greet friends before we all started grunting "Alright?" at each other. How do they do it in the movies?

    Maybe you could just flip this around a bit into "Have a shit today." Rather than a creepy Americanism, that turns it into a straightforward piece of advice on digestive health. Appropriate under almost all circumstances.

    I have terrible Ibs-c, so that seems a bit cruel and mocking.

    You can mix it up if you get bored.

    "Farewell.... shithouse"
    "Cheerio.... fucknut"
    "See ya.... cockspade"

    And such.
