    Post-Grammatic Stress

    | Massachusetts, USA |

    (I have just completed a transaction and given the customer their coffee.)

    Me: “Have a great day!”

    Customer: “What did you say to me?”

    Me: “I said have a great day.”

    Customer: “Well, that’s impossible. I am an English teacher. It’s impossible to have a great day. Something will always go wrong to prevent ‘great’ from being the correct adjective to describe ‘day’. I find you wishing me the impossible insulting.”

    Me: “Have a decent day?”

    Customer: “Thank you.”

    (The customer sits down to eat near the register and opens a book. Another customer orders and pays.)

    Me: “Have a great day!”

    Original Customer: “I heard that!”
