Excuse me while I stray for a moment from the topics of American aggression, Canadian sovereignty, and vowel raising, back to the phrase "have a nice day." What is it that people don't like about it? The only thing I don't like about it, which is a trifling matter, is that it always reminds me of that 1970s yellow smiley face. I had no idea it was specifically American or sugar-coated though. Also, if you don't use it, what do you say (in English) to wish someone a nice day? "Good day?" Eric Christopherson / *Aiworegs Ghristobhorosyo suHnus
