Today, I absentmindedly smiled and told my grandfather to "have fun" before closing the door behind him. He was leaving to go to his chemotherapy session for lung cancer. FML

Hey everyone; OP here. I apologized to my Nana when he came back home a couple of hours later. He laughed, hugged me, and said "it's all right. I'm used to your awkwardness anyway. And for the record, I did have fun!" I appreciate the supportive comments. I'll read and translate them to my Nana in Bangla. I'm sure he'll get a good laugh from this, as well. So, I really thank you all for allowing me to have another special moment with him. I truly, sincerely do.

Maybe OP could make up for her remark by giving him every season of Breaking Bad! Then he could have fun watching that, hopefully. Just keep an eye out for your grandpa wearing a black hat and hiding wads of cash throughout the house. On a serious note, my best wishes to your grandpa... I hope the treatments are very successful.

I'm actually guilty of this, lol. The times I would go through the drive thru and the window cashier would tell me to enjoy when handing my order, I would say out of habit, "Thanks, you too."

It's okay OP, we all slip up at some point in life & have a brain fart. Hopefully what you said didn't get to him, and I hope his chemotherapy goes well :). I'm rooting for him to beat the cancer.

It's really not that huge of a deal. Is it a little fucked up, but what mood lightening comment isn't? If I was going through chemo I would rather hear stupid crap like that than "good luck" or "feel Better" all the damn time.

I use 'have fun' as a goodbye for anything for quick trips to the loo, go doctors appointments. Hopefully he understood the well meaning intent. I hope his treatment goes well
