At times I am somewhat of a literalist, so it can bug me when people say, "have a good one." "Have a good one what?" I want to ask. A good life? A good idea? A good hair day?
Why can't, or don't, people complete the sentence properly? Don't they care? Is it really that hard to replace the word "one" with the word "day"? They're both one syllable, three-letter words after all. Who came up with this alternate anyway? Perhaps someone with an interest in etymology can enlighten me.
Any particular phrases that get on your nerves? Feel free to share them in the comments.
And please, have a good day. I insist!
