I shocked myself this morning as I walked into work. When the cleaning lady told me to be careful as the floor was slippery, I smiled, thanked her and said “Have a nice day!”
It wasn’t until I was in the lift I realized what I had said… Bloody Hell, I’ve turned into an American!! Whatever would my relatives think?
It’s just as well I’m going home for a holiday this year – I need a top up of some good old English and then maybe next time I will say “Ta Love” or maybe just "Cheers." She won’t understand a word of it, but it will make me feel better.
