Have a nice rest of the day

by Ruderboot
Hello English Experts,

I've been hearing this phrase more often "Have a nice rest of the day" - Looking for a good German translation!
BTW Doesn't really sound like correct English -

Thanks and have a nice (rest of?) the day!

TIA Ruderboot

Hi Ruderboot,

ich nehme mal an, das soll 'Einen schönen Tag noch' heißen. Ich würde einfach:
Have a nice day sagen.
Gerade als Nicht-Muttersprachler sollte man mit informeller Sprache und Slang äußerst vorsichtig sein (=vermeiden!)

I must say I’ve never heard anyone say that. Maybe it's American English?

Hi all,

Have a nice rest of the day

isn't necessarily common in the US, but people do sometimes say it.

Nevertheless, I would dare say you're more likely to hear:

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Speaking of which, this might be of interest:
