"You too"

I have this nasty habit of saying stupid things.

I know.

It's a shocker, isn't it?

One of the most common is when I reply with "you too" to someone helping me in a store or some other customer service situation. It just comes flying out of my mouth, even if it is completely inappropriate. It's as if I have a very specific form of Tourette's.

You can guarantee that if someone says any of the following, I will inevitably follow with an enthusiastic "you too!"

"Enjoy your movie."
"Good luck with your interview."
"Enjoy your purchase."

I also have the uncanny ability to say "you're welcome" before anyone has a chance to say "thank you."

It's a gift.

My husband and I ALWAYS say "you too!" to the movie ticket guy. Then we feel like real buttheads. Sometimes to waiters at restaurants too . . .

I do that all the time too. I was told it is a common sympton of ADD. I'm pretty sure I'm a poster child for the adult version of ADD. :)

Do it all the time.

"You need help with that?"
"You too!"
