There’s nothing wrong or evil about having a bad day. There’s everything wrong with making others have to have it… with you.

Neil Cavuto

And that, ladies and germs, is precisely why you should embrace the glory that is “Have a Bad Day Day”. When you’re having a bad day, you shouldn’t have to suffer alone, so wish everyone you meet “Have a Bad Day”, but do it with the brightest, cheeriest smile you can put on your face. Chaos, my friends, is the heart of the revolution, and all revolutions started on a Bad Day.

History of Have a Bad Day Day

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…

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.

How to celebrate Have a Bad Day Day

Well, it’s all wrapped up in the above really. Have a Bad Day Day is your opportunity to get out there and truly wish the worst of the worst on people with a cheery “Have a Bad Day!”. 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.
