I feel your pain Mary. Bad enough when delivered by condescending office girls like Legs Eleven but just as annoying when neighbours and friends use it. The phrase has become an end of conversation marker hasn't it - like "see you later" or "musn't keep you".
My response to being told to stay safe is to say (mock) angrily "What? No thank you very much At my age I want to live dangerously. Go and boil yer 'ead.
A small resistance and futile , but it makes me feel better.
