“… I feel like it’s not a sincere wish that my day be “blessed,” but instead it is a way of signaling to me that they are a Christian.
Are they testing me? I wonder if this phrase is something like a secret-handshake. I also wonder what the “correct” response would be from someone who wanted to signal-back that they too were a Christian. …
… I suppose that saying “have-a-blessed-day” (4 words) gets the point across much more succinctly than “have-a-nice-day-and-by-the-way-I’m-a-Christian-are-you-one-too-and-if-you’re-not-I’m-a-better-person-than-you” (25 words).”
