. . . I hear the phrases companies require their employees to say either in the form of a salutation or valediction. (I think I smile because of the obvious word choice or wordplay and because I'm no actor and delivering those preset lines would be difficult.)
When a McDonald's order taker asks me, "What can I make for you?" my inner smile is huge and I think, Make? Nothing.
The other day I took my niece to the Disney Store, and the closing there was, "Have a magical day!" Why thank you, I will.
And at See's Candies, after they've greeted you with a free chocolate and you've made your purchase: "Come and see us again!" Thanks, I think I will, mostly for the sweet valediction and the cherry chocolate.
