Four Simple Words Got Her Fired. But Was She Preaching or Just Being Pleasant?

Did a case of common courtesy get this Kentucky woman fired?

Or was she inappropriately preaching Christianity in a bank?

“I say ‘Have a blessed day’ all of the time,” Polly Neace told WXIX-TV. “I don’t think there’s any better kind of day you can have than a blessed day.”

But saying those words to customers at U.S. Bank, where she was until recently a teller, was among the actions that got Neace fired.

Yes, Tom. The fake Christ images of cesare borgia or the emaciated antichrist on the crucifix are reprehensible, no matter how "well-meaning". And pastors, more than anyone, should know better.

She hates it when people use Lord's name in vain. i hate it when I see images of "Jesus" in protestant churches. And some pastors still put images of "jesus" downloaded online and pasted on the powerpoints when giving a sermon. I believe that is idolatry and annoys me greatly.

Little late but thanks for the "blessed day", penned. It always warns my heart and UPS comments about all the firing going on just proves our point here, nothing wrong with being a kind hearted person and wanting people to have a blessed day. Now everybody " good night and sweet dreams". Oops, will I get fired saying this UPS?

Jesus was describing the state of those who would be blessed- not on the world's terms of what is considered to be blessed but on His. Those who are broken in spirit and are not self-sufficient, those who are keenly aware of their sinfulness,etc.
If you came across the guy going into the liquor store and said "have a blessed day", that would be in vain. The best thing that you could do would be to share the gospel with him.
And "no", pious would not be a quality which a Christian should desire to exude. Piety is a formal kind of religiosity...always feigned, plastic and trite.
And I hear "amen" misused and parroted a lot especially on charismatic radio broadcasts. Some preachers can't even seem to get through a sentence without saying it at least once. If they didn't use that word, they would have practically nothing left to say.

SC, thanks for your post. Not sure what you are trying to say, so if I could get some clarification please. The beatitudes finds our Lord giving a formula for having a blessed day, but you state Jesus would not wish everyone a blessed day. Also, if the homeless guy was on his way to the liquor store, wouldn't we want him to be blessed and find salvation at the mission instead?

You stated that it was almost as if we want everyone to know we are pious, isn't that something we want?

It may indeed be overused (haven't found amen overused too much in my circles) but what would you suggest we say? Wasn't it nice that Pennned wished all a blessing? I may have kidded with her about it but I thought it was sweet and thoughtful. Sorry, just trying to understand not trying to be contentious, thanks.

For all of you in favor of the "God bless you" expression: You may want to consider that when one says it that they are not necessarily referring to the One True God...so don't be too quick to assume that everyone who does say it is a Christian any more than a lot of high profile family organizations or CCM singers which/who carry the same label.

Ah well, it had to happen sooner or later.

I'd rather be fired in this world than the next.

I guess Wal-Mart doesn't care about this because I get a lot of have a blessed day and my response is always,"You,too." Kinda makes my day nicer to know I was touched by a fellow Christian. I have been blessed by others in different stores and it never fails to lift my spirits.When my children were teenagers, we went to a Christian Church afew miles from where we lived. The youth leader wanted them there afew minutes eariier because he was taking them to their house for a time of fellowship. Well, we stopped by to pick up a girl that needed a ride and she was not ready. After several minutes and running late( no cell phones then) I was in a hurry and you guessed it, the law got behind me and the only place I could pull over was the church parking lot. The kids jumped out and the policeman must have gone to a Baptist Church because he proceeded to ask me if I was saved, yes, are you sure, yes. Witnessed a bit then handed me a ticket. The youth leader came up and explained why I was in a hurry but to no avail. Guess, times have changed and times are still achanging.

headline of story is misleading, she was fired for flaunting company policy and customer complaints. Nobody has to bank where she worked, so if your actions are driving business away, then you aren't fulfilling your obligation to the company. I had a customer rail on me because I used the phrase, Lord willing, when referring to the arrival of a box. I didn't take the time to defend my choice of words because that wasn't good customer service. The company for whom I work has never complained, as I still say those words, but though I wanted to speak up for using them, the job was not the spot.

As time goes on Christians should get used to not having jobs,more and more companies and corporations are putting policies in place to remove Christians from the workplace.

Someone here referred to employers as "masters" my employer is not my master,he is my employer and my immediate boss my supervisor,i am not a slave and do not have a master and can walk away when I wish to.

I am to respect their authority and follow their rules but a slave cannot walk away from a master and I can walk away,if I were a slave then I would have to do anything they told me to including violating both the law of the land and of God...people should realize the difference between scripture that applied to the culture of that time,the bible says that man should keep account of his flocks and herds,who here has either flocks or herds.

Stop speculating Ephesian 6:5 is really clear on how we are to comport ourselves while at work. Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh,with fear and trembling,in singleness of your heart,as unto Christ. So as we are told to work out or salvation with fear and trembling we should do the same. Now if a company's policies requires you to violate Gods law and the law of the land then you speak truth and inform your superiors or law enforcement.
