Personally, this phrase offends me. When someone says it, I want to respond, go **** yourself! For this reason, I think businesses who ban people from using it are making a good call. What do you think?

They're trying to be nice. Would you rather them say "Have a miserable day" and give you the finger?

How is something as harmless, and simple as a well wish like "have a blessed day" offensive?

You should express your displeasure and then they can tell you to get hit by a bus.

It assumes I'm either a Christian or a Wiccan or something. I'm neither. I don't like the phrase. If I ran a business, I'd make sure my employees didn't use it. I don't always agree with WalMart, but I'm with them on this one.

Doesn't bother me a bit. If someone said that to me, I wouldn't even think twice about it. There's more serious issues going on than "Have a blessed day" such as just having a bomb threat here on Eisenhower Avenue, just outside of DC.

Go **** yourself...

Yes that is offensive.

I'm thanking anyone who wishes me to have a happy day. No matter how they do it.

I agree. The next time someone says have a blessed day to me, I will respond: God bless your rosy red a-hole, may it only s*** the softest of poops.

To me I just hear it as, "have a great day". I don't get why people would be offended by it.

If hearing someone say "have a blessed day" is the WORST thing you deal with, your life must be really great!
