William's Blog...with a smile!


Has the word "Welcome" gone out of style?

I should ask has the phrase..."You are Welcome"  Gone out of style?

When was the last time you have heard 'you are welcome'?

It has changed as of late.

Now when I say Thank You I usually hear..."No Problem."  It is very seldom I hear, you are welcome.

I guess I am old fashion.  I still use the old word of 'Welcome' in my everyday vocabulary.

Just shows I don't like  lot of change.

I always think "no problem" is a Canadian thing - I guess that's because my VA uses that phrase a lot.

"No problem" is a double negative. 

  "You are well, come!" is a double positive.

I say it a lot.  I do not like "no problem" it does not feel nice. It does not feel like "service" to me.

Yea, I notice that also...I got caught up in that phrase for a while, but I am back to Your Welcome.

William- I must admit that I have at times said "no problem" but I usually say "You're welcome."
