Whatever happened to people saying "you're welcome"? Do YOU hear it that much anymore? I sure don't.
The cool catch phrase that is as ubiquitous as clueless drivers is "no problem". Everybody says it. Not just the young, hip kids either.
I don't know exactly when everything became a non-problem, but I don't like it. Why should that be the response when I thank a store employee who points me in the direction of drill bits? Why WOULD it be a "problem" that I am asking them for directions?
"I appreciate your help!" No problem!
"May I have more ice tea, please?" No problem!
How about a polite "you're welcome" instead?
Short blog. Big pet peeve.
I feel better now.
Not that there's a problem or anything.
