"Have a good one."
I hear this almost every day- sometimes multiple times a day- and it always bothers me.
Usually it's when I get my soup at lunch.  I set the cup on the counter, the cashier rings me up, I say "Thank you," and they reply (without hesitation and with about as much enthusiasm as someone traveling to a wake), "Have a good one."
'Have a good one?'  Really?  Is that all you've got?
For me, this is a sure sign that customer service, as a vocation, is in trouble.  Service reps can't even muster a "Thank you for stopping by,"  or "Have a nice day."  No... these would be too personal.  Too committal. 
We can post our dirty laundry on social networks multiple times a day, citing whether we're single, in a relationship, feeling those "monthly" blues, hung-over, fearing an STD,  and can't bother to utter a personal greeting or thank you?
 
For me, I don't think it's about courtesy as much as it is insincerity.  Do they really care if I have a good one?  Do they care whether I have one at all?

Next time maybe I should respond, "I do.  I assure you."  Just to see what they say.  Nah.  Too personal.

The article intends to describe the procedure of resetting a Belkin router to factory default settings. The method described here is simple and correct to the date. Failure or success of the method entirely depends on how correctly you follow and implement the instructions.

It’s really a good idea. Many days have passed I thought about the snowy tour. In this season I must go there. Living cost is also reasonable. Thanks for blogging.

    I am a writer, an husband, a father, an educator, a gardner, a soap opera junkie, an uncle, an innovator, and a son- not in that order.
    For me, writing has become a way to share my voice through vehicles when face-to-face interactions aren't possible.
    In this new blog, I hope to share my thoughts, musings, and reflections for anyone caring to view them. I hope that you will engage with me, whether we know each other or not. This is just one of the benefits of the internet and blogging...
    Thank you for reading, and finding time to get to know me just a bit better.
