I  think I am going to go with "Allah Ma’ak" and see how it goes. 


And what would be your point in doing that??? Do terms like"Thank you" and "You too" not sit right with you??

 

It is really not necessary to walk through the world looking for negativity. Sometimes people are just being nice. BTW - be careful with Allah Ma'ak vs Allah Maak, don't want to offend anyone do ya??


Would my response offend you?


No. Rhett Butler said it very well. But, why would you want to question the person's obvious good thoughts for you?

I respond in a very positive way, and will most likely repeat it back to them.  First off, it causes me to think this person is a christian, a believer in God,  as I am.    It is 4 words that give a pleasing sound.   It is saying I hope your day goes well.  It means regardless of what is happening to us externallly, we can be truly  happy internally.


And I always think the person is being pretentious. and artificial. Well, different strokes.

I say "Thank you", and move on with my day. Or sometimes I'll say "Thank you, same to you".  

It's that simple!

These relies are absolutely ridiculous and childish.  Have a blessed day is just being kind.   Get over ig!

How about respond in kind, thanks you too. I do find it interesting that the people who say have a Blessed Day to me are African Americans. Is it possible it's a taught to them in church. Interesting.!

I reply with "Namaste."

You've kinda said, very simply, how I feel about it all. I don't partake in Yoga but I understand the meaning of Namaste and I just feel the person saying that to me is wishing me, from their world, a very kind salutation. It never crossed my mind they were trying to influence me or disrespect the fact that I don't practice Yoga or a metaphysical lifestyle. Same with 'may the force be with you", I'm enough of a Star Wars fan to get that such a salutation is wishing nothing but the best. That said:

I didn't realize this bothered so many people and, tho I don't bless anyone on a routine, common basis as a salutation, I have said "Bless you" to someone who has saved me untold aggravation/inconvenience. So I will rethink my expression of gratitude to something that can't be taken offensively.

I learn something every day these days!
