Well, Have A Bad Day Day encourages you to embrace these bad days and to stop worrying about the fact you are having a bad day, to begin with!

There’s a job out there that ensures that you’re going to have a Bad Day, possibly dozens of times a day. What job is that? Anything in the customer service industry. If you’ve never worked in the customer service industry it’s important to understand that your soul is impeccably clean, and you’ve never truly known a day of suffering. We are all customers at some point in our lives, and unfortunately, that means that we all join the ranks of the truly walking dead. Retail customers, be afraid friends, be afraid. But Have a Bad Day Day gives our heroes in the customer service industry a chance to strike back…

This date was created by Ruth and Thomas Roy of Wellcat.com. They created the date for the purpose of giving people working in the sales and customer services industry to wish their customers to Have a Bad Day. After all, whenever you leave a store of finish speaking with a customer services agent, they probably wish you to have a good day, right?

Well, on this date, you can expect the opposite. It is a great opportunity to put a smile on people’s faces, as they won’t be expecting you to say such a thing. Plus, for those who are secretly tired of being nice all of the time, you have an opportunity to be impolite for the day and no one can say anything. However, we would advise you stick with just wishing people a bad day, rather than being rude in general…

Every agent has to end their spiel, no matter how rotten the customer was, with the phrase “Have a Nice Day!”, but on Have a Bad Day Day, they get a reprieve from this monotonous platitude and get to instead assail their customers with that most delightful of passive-aggressive phrases. “Have a Bad Day!” announced in the cheeriest tone they can manage, and then they revel in the confusion as their customers try to make out whether or not they’ve just been insulted. They’ll never know.

Even if you’re not a customer service agent, you’re sure to know someone who deserves to be confused by being told to have a bad day in a voice that says have a good one. Let your malice run unabated today, and pass it on to those who will never know you’re not just being silly. Vengeance is mine, sayeth the teller.
