Agreed, it's inappropriate in a business context, but otherwise it doesn't bother me. Seems to be more of a "new age" kinda thang, although it's not like they're pushing any particular religion. And anyway I'm fine with anything that annoys the "dogmatic" types (religious, secular, PC, or otherwise…lol)!

It's not the worst thing I deal with by a long shot. It's just one of the many things that annoys me.

Outside of a business context, it doesn't bother me. Inside of one, it does.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Same here. But in this PC Bizzaro World, it seems everyone is offended by every little thing. Especially any little reference to God!

I don't go to a place of business to be a captive audience to you to proselytize to me about whatever flavor of God you happen to find yummy. Check that at the door please.

Living where I live with all of the religious fuddie-duddies, I just accept is as part of their belief system. It's not my belief system, so you won't find me saying it. It even seems a bit hypocritical to say it, so I just say "you too" or "same to you". They're just trying to be nice in the way that they express it best.

If they are running a business based on Christian morality and you have a problem with that then do business somewhere else. No reason to be an ******* because someone has given you good wishes.
