PLEASE put some effort and pay attention to time of day ….it’s part part of your job. No one goes for supper to the restaurant and hears from hostess

ANOTHER POST:  This is What I'm Thankful For...

  1. I’m gonna wish everyone a good morning today, just on the off chance that I get to meet this poster today.
    Hopefully it offends you … have a good morning snowflake

    1. Liker # 133 here lol. I always say good morning … even in afternoon and evenings lol. And. What if someone works shift work? They may go to a restaurant at 9:00 am to have their supper because of their schedule and would probably be greeted good morning lol

  2. seriously…. you’re offended over someone saying “good day” at 10 or 11pm? technically the day isn’t over until midnight soooo someone saying “good day” isn’t wrong…. get over yourself

  3. I work different shifts, from morning shifts, to afternoon, to evening. I mix up greetings all the time. Customers can ignore it or laugh it off. I know I laugh it off when I tell them “Morning!” and it’s 5pm.

  4. It’s actually not part of my job to watch the clock. Sometimes people in those industries are exhausted of repeating the same thing over and over so it becomes clock work. And.. I note it’s not just the employees that make goofs – one time I said to a customer (who was headed for the lake) to “Enjoy your time at the beach” and they said back to me “You too” even though I was clearly stuck at work.

    1. Jackie I worked at a movie theatre too and used to tell cashiers at the grocery store or gas station to enjoy the movie at the end of that transaction. 🙂

  5. Wow… you need to relax and realize that this people could have just started their shift. Which to them would be have a good day… I am sure there a bigger things to worry about in these places than worrying about what parting reply they give you!

  6. You’ve obviously never worked shift work.Wish this was my only problem in the world.
    Why don’t you just be grateful that the person is there working all hours,for minimum wage away from their families to serve you.

  7. haha seriously not everyone has a normal schedule, i would always mess up the time of day even after four years of nights i’d still say good morning even though its 6 pm .

  8. Dear Ignorant Asshole,
    It is your job, as a decent human being, to stop letting stupid things like this bother you. If someone is wishing you a good ANYTHING – appreciate it! I have worked MANY customer service positions, and guess what? Sometimes long shifts & split shifts blend into each other. Maybe the employee is used to only working the day shift but took on an extra evening shift to help out a coworker. Does it even matter!?!?! Oye.

  9. As a manager, let me assure you that we do not pay people to watch the clock. If you received good service and all you have to complain about is someone saying ‘have a good day’, then it would seem you would be commending this worker for a job well done.

  10. So someone tells you, “Have a good day” at 10pm? People work at all hours of the day, how do they not know that you are going home to bed instead of going to start a shift at work?

    Really, I think that there are bigger issues to get upset over. At least they are making an effort to be friendly and cheerful.

    Maybe the original poster can take lessons.

  11. Is this seriously the biggest issue in your life? I’m happy to hear anything from the cashier/server etc, as it seems with the newest generation of workers it happens less frequently. Inhale the good, exhale the bad, and move on with your day.

  12. Holy fuck shut up. The amount of times you say “have a good day” in customer service, it ends up becoming automatic and robot like because really you’re just another customer. Find better things to bitch about.

  13. To the people who complain about store clerks, gas station, fast food restaurants etc – is it that hard to be nice and appreciate the greeting?? Your life must be pretty damn good if that is all you have to bitch, whine and complain about……perhaps a couple shifts doing those jobs might make you a tad bit more appreciative. Have a nice morning/afternoon/evening/midnight snack…..whatever the hell it takes to shut you up………..

  14. Someone… maybe the OP… called into my work and I said Good Morning….. it was 12:30pm…. and they wasted my time scolding me on the phone that it was afternoon. #facepalm

  15. So it may be 10 or 11 pm, maybe your day just started. I’ve said have a good night to people only for them to get pissed off and say that their day is just starting. So have a good eh! Hoser!

  16. Well maybe you should try working shift work. Work late then back in the morning sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the day. Or a bunch of late shifts then early or vice versa. Good morning good afternoon good evening and goodnight whichever one floats your boat

  17. I have heard people say hope the rest of your day is good, or something along those lines. But seriously, anytime someone says something kind you should sppreciate it, I do and I don’t care if they get the time of day wrong. 🙂

  18. Seemed very fitting for this post. Be happy someone even acknowledged your grumpy ass. Sheesh. So what someone forgot what time of day it was. Not a big deal. Smile and nod that’s all you gotta do. Be polite.

  19. … Uhh. Maybe because the majority of the day they are saying to people have a good day, and when you go into a retail store at 10 or 11pm it’s usually when they are close to closing and their day is almost to an end so they might be tired, and they just auto have a good day. It’s like going to the movies and the person giving you your tickets says enjoy the movie moat automatic responses are you too. It’s just an automatic response. Also, I think that you should take a step outside sit down on your front step and just breathe. Take it all in. Look at the positive things in life because if something as insignificant as this is bothering you I feel like you have issues you might want to get checked out. Have a goodnight!

  20. Wow.

    This warrants a post?

    If this was a legitimate concern…. perhaps this ” offender” is so exhausted…they don’t know the time of day.

    Give something back. Like….understanding

    Sheesh. Chill pill.

  21. lol i work at my job 4pm-12am almost everyday. very rarely i’ll work 11-7. sometimes at noon i’ll accidentally tell people to have a good night because it’s automatic 🙂
    don’t take things so seriously!

  22. My daughter works in a fitting room and there is no clock in there . She can’t tell what time it is. You should be happy that there is people to help you .

  23. Well Sis….I am just happy when you say ANYTHING to me. Morning, noon or evening. Always appreciate it. Better than a poke in the eye. I have no idea what would motivate a person to complain about something like that.

  24. I work at a liquor store. My usual shifts are nights, so when I work mornings it’s not uncommon for me to say “have a good night.” If I happen to notice I’ll laugh and say “I mean day, sorry.”

    But at the same time I make pennies above minimum wage, have fantastic customer service skills and will do everything in my power to help you. Maybe stop picking at the little things.

  25. When you say the same thing day after day and a couple hundred people a day, it’s basically programmed into your head. When I worked at McDonalds in the drive thru about 18 years ago, I said the same “Welcome to McDonalds” speech so many times that once at home, my mom told me the phone was for me and when I picked up the extension in my room I accidentally said the “Welcome to McDonalds” speech instead of saying hello.

  26. Hmmm, not as difficult as saying please and thanks apparently. Those two words seem to not exist in many vocabularies. I’d rather forget what time of day it is-at least manners are still present.

  27. Coming from someone who works retail…. when your doing that kind of job your busy and sometimes as it’s just habit the have a good day slips out… sitting here and getting pissy because someone says have a good day at 10pm instead of saying have a good evening or night is a little petty. And actually it is not part of our job description to say good morning, afternoon,evening, or night, it’s just part of the description to be polite and greet the person. So instead of complaining about it smile and say thank you because the person who just made the mistake has also been saying have a good morning afternoon evening or night to at least 300 other people and doesn’t have time to worry if they got it right or not.
