LETTER: Silly import from the States

I do the bulk of my shopping in Eastbourne (I don’t really favour on-line shopping). The staff of all the shops in which I make my purchases are unfailingly polite and helpful; but why, oh why, do they all have to say when I leave “Have a nice day”?

As you may have guessed I am an OAP and possibly a ‘grumpy old woman’. But I do wish that we could leave this and other American expressions where they belong – over the pond.
