Thank you for sharing this, Saru :)

I think that also hearing 'You are welcome' allows the receiver to have their 'Thank you' acknowledged. I realise that sometimes people will get into a 'Thank you' war, where both parties, the receiver and the giver will say Thank you. The receiver saying 'Thank you for receiving' and the giver saying 'Thank you' to the receiver when accepting their Thank you. Perhaps it's just my every day experiences, but I don't hear 'You're welcome' as much in regards to acknowledging a 'Thank you.'

I did a customer service course and the whole Thank you/You're Welcome subject came up a lot in lectures. To fully recognize a 'Thank you,' it is always clearer to reply with a 'You're welcome.' or 'You are welcome.'

Amazing how simple words can affect our everyday lives and well being.

Kind Regards :)

P.S Awesome thread! :clap:

Other words with magical powers of catharsis are:

"I'm sorry."

and

"I was wrong."

Two phrases that aren't heard much on this forum!

'Thank You' is so easy to say and shouldn't need thinking about. It should come out naturally along with 'please'. It's just good manners plain and simple.

I for one will always be the first to admit if I am wrong, but as of yet have not had the opportunity.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
