What Does HAGD Mean in a Text?

HAGD means "Have A Good Day." The abbreviation HAGD is typically used at the end of a text-based conversation as a way of wishing the recipient all the best for the rest of the day.

HAGD is a variation of HAND ("Have A Nice Day"), an expression commonly used in the US to conclude a conversation. Since "Have A Nice Day" is often used by service employees to customers at the end of a transaction, its usage has resulted in the phrase developing a cultural connotation of impersonality and lack of interest. "Have A Good Day" may be considered a less clichéd alternative.

The abbreviation HAG1 (Have A Good One) is used with exactly the same meaning as HAGD.
