“Have a blessed day.” That is what she said to me. A blessed day. On a business phone. I called an office in the course of my day to day employment and got a machine. I listen to her recording. Leave a message, blah blah blah, and have a blessed day. She means no harm. Wishing me good will. Right?
First this chick is trying to fling her voodoo on me. Please think about those who were blessed. Martyrs, saints, Job! They had a rough deal. Living in poverty and sometimes suffering a horrific fate. Job had his whole family killed, crops wiped out and cattle killed. When he still loved God, he got replacement children. REPLACEMENT CHILDREN! Really! So, no, I am not that keen on “Have a blessed day.”
It is like saying “There is a God. He is my God. I am in His favor enough to bestow His gifts upon you.” How arrogant. What if I end my messages with “There is no God and it is good”? How much of an uproar would that cause my clients and associates. Could hurt the business and my employer would be crazy to allow me to do this. So now everybody who calls this chick will be the victim of her proselytizing and those offended will slink off into the dark alone and sad. Screw you lady!
There is no God and it is good!
