A woman being fired for saying “Have a blessed day” is heating up the debate on political correctness.

In 2009, Polly Neace of Kentucky heard the saying from one of her patrons at U.S. Bank. Polly liked the saying so much, she adopted it herself. Until recently, that is.

The Daily Mail reports:

She said it all started in March 2011 when someone complained she had told them 'have a blessed day'.


In a Code of Ethics violation, US Bank states several customers had complained when Neace said the phrase, which has Christian connotations.

Polly, who has worked for US Bank for twenty-four years, is filing a lawsuit on grounds that her termination was due to her religious beliefs.

No word on yet on whether the bank is crossing out “In God We Trust” before handing customers their money.
