Bullcrap over common goodbyes
We also all say "Get out of my house, because you're no son of mine!" Because I know I'm not the only one who was told that.
@Finndogs, well you shouldn't have become a death eater then, Junior
@Kamitha, “Get out of my daughter, because you’re no son of mine!”
@Finndogs, we also say “How did you get in here?!” as well as “I’m calling the police!”
@Finndogs, at least they acknowledged you.
@Thane of Deez, badbye
@Finndogs, my no?
A lot of my friends just say "don't die" whenever someone leaves and I think that's beautiful.
@A Math Dealer, my friends do that too and I think that's hilarious
@A Math Dealer, you and your friends are the illegitimate children of Dr Zed
Who the hell says be safe?
@Scottles, My almost four year old daughter. She also says don’t get lost, probably because she hears how I say by whenever my wife leaves the house.
@Scottles, most of my friends, but most of them are drug dealers
@Scottles, I do sometimes, but mostly if someone’s walking home or driving or going out, etc
@Scottles, There are a lot of idiots that drive here in Colorado. Because of the high volume of people I see one or two accidents a day ranging from varying degrees of bad. Add any kind of inclement weather and you have a cocktail for disasters. If it’s really bad out I tell my customers to have a good rest of their day and to be safe. It’s not as bad a response as you may think.
“So long, partner”
We also remind each other not to fall in the toilet, and I think that’s beautiful
The phrase "bless you" after sneezing actually comes from americas spanish roots, as the spanish believed your heart stopped when you sneezed and since they were crazy religious, they would bless that person so they hopefully wouldnt die
@MeanGurl, a source I found says:
"How about theories that sneezing lets your soul escape from your body or allows in evil spirits? Those superstitions have been around for years.
But it turns out we say “Bless You” because that is what Pope Gregory the Great said it in 590, when Europe was in the throes of the Black Death.
He ordered anyone who sneezed to be blessed because that was the first sign of the illness."
@MeanGurl, We were always taught that it was a polite way of saying “oh shít, I hope that’s not plague, half my village died of plague after a traveller sneezed on his way through. Oh god, please don’t let it be plague”.
@MeanGurl, I thought it was because people where sneezing to expel demons or some sh!t like that.
@Ashoka02Tano, i always thought it was an expression of gratitude for just blasting a bunch of germs in my air.
In Texas we say howdy y’all cuz we’re letting people know how deez nuts gonna be on your face.
