Have a Good One...What?


Monday, October 31, 2011

That is what I said to one of our drivers when I was leaving our business on Saturday. We own a food carryout and I went there Saturday. As I was heading out, he said "Have a good one". I turned around and said, "Have a good one...what?" He said, "You know...whatever." What exactly does this statement mean?

I started thinking back on the last 10 or so years. We have started changing phrases, changing words, or eliminating stuff altogether. We have become such a vanilla, vague, and androgenous society now. Is that to avoid offending someone? Is it so bad to wish someone a nice day, say Merry Christmas (no matter what you celebrate), or have the opinion that God should remain in the Pledge of Allegiance and on our money?

I know one size does not fit all, but that can't be for everything. There shouldn't be one catchall phrase. Do I have all the answers? Noone does.

Okay. I'm off my soap box now.
