HAGE is a variation of H& ("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.
