A thread to say Good Afternoon

A thread to say Good Afternoon

As so kindly pointed out by SF :wink_kiss I was way off topic in another thread, so I have started this one so I don't get into trouble.

Good afternoon to you all. :bye:

Although now I have a problem.
I know when afternoon starts, 12 noon, but when does it finish and when does evening start?
Is it after my tea, which we have at 6pm?
But others have their tea/dinner later than that and I would be saying good evening to them when for them it is really still good afternoon.

Do you understand my quandry :unsure:

Yes, and it's a tough one. Maybe you could start a thread to say hello, we could use it during those uncertain hours.

I think you're right with 6pm, Andrea. It feels right, somehow and it's the cut-off point that has always served me well.

I've always seen it as:

07.00 - 12.00 Morning
12.00 - 17.00 Afternoon
17.00 - 22.00 Evening
22.00 - 07.00 Night

Dunno why, just seems right for me Huh

0400 - 1200 Morning
1200 - 1759 Afternoon
1800 - 2259 Evening
2300 - 0359 Night

Hmmm, it's the night bit that's troubling me. This seems ok though.

So does that mean we can't say goodnight until after 10pm? Only good evening sounds like a greeting and goodbye sounds a bit final. Sorry to add to your quandry.

They used to say good evening in the old days, as a greeting and if they were "retiring". We just say goodnight now, whatever time we go to bed. I find "hello" and "goodnight" work best for me now. Oh and, of course, "good morning".

I'm sorry but I'm finding this thread rather offensive.
