Richva--

Other options other than thank you

--YUP

--RIGHT BACK AT YA

--OK

--SURE THING

--YOU TOO

--I'LL TRY

 

OR

 

YOU CAN PRETEND YOU NEVER HEARD THEM.

I feel weird when someone says this to me because one person I know who says this all the time is a very negligent parent and a terrible person overall. 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Or, "why?  Is my shirt tail out"?  It always leaves them scratching their heads.

 

What gets our circle going is when servers at restaurants say, "Enjoy"  Several of our lady friends respond, "a cunning linguist".  The responses are PRICELESS.

You may use the Cubs idea. 

 

One more is to give an old Zoroastrian blessing: "Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds".  Or the Wiccan "Blessed Be". Just to see if they know what they are getting.

You know, this has always been on my mind as well...

 

I am so afraid of offending someone (I work in Tech Support) I have never felt comfortable asking what is the best response.

 

Personally, if I have to call, then I am not happy (customer service means I don't need to do that).

 

I respond to that phrase with a thank you (a canned response); but your question is something I've wondered about for years. What if I responded "not in this lifetime"?

 

Interesting topic! Thanks for the post!

   I really like the response:   May the cubs win the pennant.   May I quote you without being sued for plagarism?   

 

    In reality, I walk away.    In business dealings I politely request that people stop with that statement because I find it offensive.    There are many Contractors who change and some don't change and they don't get my business.

How do you respond to "Have a blessed day"?

1,071 Views
Message 287 of 287

Just to be clear, I always say "Thank you" but every time someone does that I just want to respond; "And may the Force be with you".

 

I am not sure why this little bit of propaganda became acceptable, and it is harmless, but if I said "Have a Progressive year" or "May the Cubs win the pennant" I would be considered a kook.  Toss a little old time religion behind it and all is well. This is not to bless the recipient, it is to make the issuer of the blessing look good.  I compare it to spotting a Bible on the dashboard. All for show. 

 

So, how does: "And may ZhooL make all your children fertile" sound?

 

Any other suggestions on how to handle this?
