Why do americans say have a nice day?
Americans people will tell other people to “have a nice day” as a way of expressing friendliness and goodwill towards others. You will find this phrase used in many service industries, such as hospitality or retail and stores. After a guest has paid for an item or is leaving the restaurant staff will tell guests to have a nice day.
The phrase is so common in every day conversation that people will say it without even thinking about it. Telling people to have a nice day is the cultural norm in the United States, and people use the term to spread positivity through out the day.
If you are from another country, you mind find it a little surprising to hear the term everywhere you go.
an american says “have a nice day” in the uk
An American woman was visiting London and she stopped at a local coffee shop. As she was leaving, she said to the British man behind the counter, “Have a nice day!” The man was taken aback by the American’s overly positive attitude and responded with a sarcastic, “Oh, I’ll try.”
The American was confused by the man’s response and asked if everything was okay. The British man explained that in the UK, people tend to be more reserved and don’t express their emotions as openly as Americans do. The American woman apologized for her exuberance and the two had a good laugh about the cultural differences between their countries.
From then on, the American woman made a conscious effort to tone down her positivity when interacting with British people.
