Have a sparkling day!

215.2 (ugh)

My last three days at work have been largely occupied with reviewing a foot-tall stack of medical records and related documents. Some of the documents are emails exchanged between various parties and treaters, including doctors, nurses and therapists. One of the therapists consistently signs off her emails with the sentence in my subject line.

Just wondering (1) what the hell *is* a "sparkling day" and how does one have one? and (2) if anyone else thinks that this is an unprofessional sign-off for email? If I read this in a personal email, I'd think it was a bit cheesy; reading it in a professional email seems wholly inappropriate to me.

Thoughts? Maybe I'm just a grouchy bitch who is sick of document review? LOL

She's a therapist. What do you want?

I should clarify: she is a speech therapist, not a psychotherapist.

It's no worse than those people who piss me off MORE than anything - Have a blessed day. I just hate it. I'm not sure why. Don't shove you optimism OR religion down my throat. If I want to have a shitty day, it's my God-given right. :)

I would think it was sarcastic because if I said it that's how I would mean it. It makes me think of that wife swap where the daughter 'sparkled'. Barf.

I used to work with a man who always signed off "TTFN" (Ta-ta for now!) Nothing ruined my day quite like that! Go shove a rainbow up your ass buddy! How's that for a sparkly closing???

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. ;)
