Don't Tell Me What to Do

               "Have a nice day!" 
               I have to bite my tongue to keep from retorting "I'll have any damn kind of a day I want." 
               Same with  "Enjoy your dinner!" 
I'll do anything I choose with my dinner, thank you very much.

              And yet -- go figure -- I always smiled when Julia Child's warbling voice wished me a chipper "Bon Appetit!"



  1. Or we get "No problem" instead of a nice, polite "Thank you." Excuse me? You're in a service industry, so thank me for my business!


  2. I'm always rather touched when the lady at Walgreen's says "Keep healthy!"
