Bank teller says she was fired for saying ‘Have a blessed day’
WALTON, Ky. (CNN) –
A Kentucky woman claims saying the phrase “Have a blessed day” to customers got her fired from her bank teller job.
Polly Neace, a bank teller from Kentucky, doesn’t just go to church on Sundays. She said she lives her beliefs every day. And so, Monday through Friday, when she was working as a teller at a U.S. Bank in Walton, Kentucky, she would say the same thing to every bank customer she came in contact with.
“I say, ‘Have a blessed day,’ all of the time,” Neace said. “All of the time. I don’t feel there’s any better kind of day you can have than a blessed day.”
The phrase didn’t appear to be an issue at first. Customers would simply thank Neace when she first began saying it.
Neace received a code of ethics violation in March 2011, claiming that several customers complained about her using the phrase.
Neace claims customers never complained, though.
