  • I've heard that before, Doesn't mean much does it? But at least it's not negative. You could ask them if you could have a good two instead, just to throw them off.

  • It's a southern way of saying have a good day. I'm sure you have some weird way of saying something. They are just being polite. Don't be rude. The south is known for it's hospitality, accept it. Don't seem like your uptight or unfriendly.

  • I hear and say it all the time in southern Louisiana... it's just understood as have a good whatever. Leaving on a trip? Have a good one means have a good trip...leaving for a day at work, it means have a good day at work... if it's just a general 'have a good one' it means have a good day! :D

  • Yes, it's definitely a southern thing. I'm in Woodstock, Virginia and it's common to hear it here daily. Just like when I was in New York visiting many years ago, they told me "Youn's have some goodn's" or something to that effect. I guess it depends on where you're at.

  • Yeah...I live in michigan and here instead of saying "You're Welcome" when you think them, they say "You bet!" The first time someone said that to me in store after I moved here, I went out fuming to my husband about how rude the cashier was...then I figured out they do that here. I dont get it. I dont do it and my children better never. I think it is so rude. Whats so hard about saying You're Welcome?
