Have a good one! oops, did i offend anyone?

I was replying to lớn somebody toàn thân who said to lớn be going to eat something và rest, and said "Have sầu a good one." I was not understood, và asked what I meant by that.

Isn"t "have sầu a good one" used instead of "have a good afternoon" or "have sầu a good evening"? Even if that is not the standard meaning, should not the phrase be understood as "have a good eat" or "have a good rest" at least in the context I used it?

It"s context-dependent. When used as a farewmichael-shanks.com, it"s usually interpreted to lớn mean, "Have sầu a good day," or, "Have sầu a good evening," or (on Fridays), "Have a good weekend."

It could also be used in this context:

Do you want lớn get together on Saturday? No, Saturday is my birthday, and my husbvà is taking me out. Oh! Wmichael-shanks.com, have a good one.

In that case, "Have sầu a good one," could mean mean, "Have sầu a good time," or, "Have sầu a good birthday," or, "I hope you have sầu a nice date." There"s a decent chance it means a little bit of all three.

If I told you, "I"m going to lớn grab something lớn eat, and then I"m going lớn lay down và rest," và you said, "Have a good one," I"d assume you meant, "Have sầu a nice rest," or, "Have sầu a good nap." I"d regard it as simple wmichael-shanks.com-wishing. It may be informal speech, but I wouldn"t press you for an explanation. I"d probably just say, "Thanks," or maybe, "Thanks, I will."

This phrase is a greeting and basically means "goodbye".

There is an entry for it in The Free Dictionary (which groups it with "Have a nice day" and similar phrases), where it is defined thus:

Cliché an expression said when parting or saying good-bye.

It can be confusing because in many cases it doesn"t make sense when taken literally (see this article, for example).

It depends how it is said. Tone. What was said before it. Take inkhổng lồ account who you are talking lớn. Where you are. The history with certain people or groups of people. All races and Creed"s. How often it is said. Whether or not you would say it. Since there are many variables at play, including toàn thân language. Many times it is meant as a ordinary goodbye. However, if in the wrong scenario, it can bother you. Sometimes, this can be picked up on. Almost used as a way lớn say f-off by some. All-in-all, I don"t like the phrase. I also don"t say it. I also try not khổng lồ respond. I usually say thanks & leave. Sometimes, I just leave.
