Ever since I’ve been in the US everybody seems to say, “Have a good one.”
Is this a Boston thing? Or something that creeped into the general language over the last few years?
I’m sure it was not an almost universal way of saying goodbye when I was last here. Everybody seems to use it – store clerks, receptionists, nurses, people in the elevator … Almost everybody.
It sounds a bit … off to me. A bit too casual or something. And of course you can’t help but think, “A good what?”
