Reader Anju was chatting online yesterday with a customer service rep from Bank of America. This is how the conversation ended:

“Have a blessed day ahead”? That’s…. weird.
It’s not a huge deal, but since so much of that conversation is boilerplate script, I wonder if that line was approved by BoA or if it was just some personal flair…
Assuming it’s the latter, how would you have responded? I figure most of you would have just shrugged it off — she meant well and it’s nothing more than that — but would anyone take offense to that? How about when someone says that to you in a real-life conversation?
