AAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!

weather: sunny

Okay, I reallyreallyreally want my script to finish running so I can bury my head in my work. People are just annoying me, left, right and centre today.

"Adieu" is the WRONG TERM to use for "goodbye" unless you never intend to contact the person ever again. It literally translates as "to God" which implies a permanent parting.

I'm just a hairline away from saying something superlatively nasty about this, but I'll shut up now.

For crying out loud.

I suspect this may be cultural (national?), rather than linguistic. "Adieu" and several derivations of it ("Ade", "Tschuess") are certainly used for casual parting in Switzerland, Australia, southern Germany and Alsace.
