What Ever Happened To "You're Welcome"?
I hear, "No problem." Or "Yeah." Or sometimes nothing at all. I don't consider the act of doing something polite to be a problem, so in my opinion, the response of "No problem" is sort of inappropriate. And "Yeah," or similar responses just don't seem to be an acknowledgement.
What about you? Do you think "You're welcome" is outmoded? Is "No problem" the accepted response now to a thanks? Am I just showing my age? Leave a comment to let me know. If it hurts my feelings, I can just answer with "No problem."
