(Man) "You Too!"
A few weeks back I was getting a movie at the local Blockbuster. The guy rang up the movie, placed it on the counter, and said, "Enjoy the movie.". I replied, "You too." I laughed but no one else seemed to have noticed or thought it was funny. So I dug an even deeper hole by adding, "Y'know, in case you see a movie later tonight." The guy, and the people in line, gave a half smile and a wave as if to say, "I think we are done talking now."
I went back to my car and remembered a comedian who had made fun of this misuse of phrase (almost 20 years ago). I found it on the interweb and thought I would share. It only takes a minute to listen to.
