You Are Welcome...Has it gone out of style?

You are welcome...has this phrase gone out of style.

Ever notice when you thank someone for helping you they say...No Problem.


No Problem?  I would hope not.

I was in a store today and a young man helped me with a difficult problem i was having.

It took us 20 minutes to figure it out.

I thanked the young man and he replied "You Are Welcome".


What a wonderful response I thought.

It was a response I grew up using eons ago when I was young.

You are Welcome just sounds more genuine than no problem.

No problem sounds like I was taking p their time, I was a bother for them at that time.


I for one have never cared for that no problem saying but I know one thing for sure, I will be more aware of what I tell people when they thank me!
