    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) Yes, as riquecohen said, it is a common way to say goodbye.

    (2) Another popular expression at the present time in the United States

    is "Have a nice day."

    (3) Of course, some people are annoyed by both "Take care" and

    "Have a nice day." They feel that those expressions have lost all

    real meaning and that people just repeat them without any real

    sincerity.

    (4) I have found that some learners make a BIG mistake. They want

    to say "Take care," but they say instead:

    Be careful! (That's a warning that something bad may happen to you!!!)
