South Carolina...........it's a great day?
Have you heard about THIS? from the AP?
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Two South Carolina legislators say state employees shouldn't have to answer the phone with Gov. Nikki Haley's mandated cheery greeting unless it's truly a great day in South Carolina.
Democratic state Reps. John Richard King and Wendell Gilliard have filed legislation saying no state agency can force its employees to answer the phone with, "It's a great day in South Carolina," as long as state unemployment is 5 percent or higher. Their bill also would prohibit requiring the greeting as long as all South Carolinians don't have health insurance.
At a September meeting, Haley ordered her Cabinet agencies to embrace the greeting, saying it could help change the mood of state government. A Haley spokesman says the Republican governor stands by the greeting.
I'm not sure how I feel about mandating a cheery greeting .... I think the Democrats mandate that they must have low unemployment and everybody must have health insurance before it can be used is even weirder, don't you? Is it another case of "if everybody's not happy, nobody's going to be happy"??
Gad, you'd think a happy greeting might go over well in tough times like these..........a happy attitude can change things around and they're not greeting with "It's a PERFECT day in South Carolina!" What do you think?
