I don’t hear this phrase very often anymore. It’s not that I don’t hear “Thank you”, its more that so many of us say “Thank you” right back. I’ve started wondering why this is. Have we become so unable to just accept a thank you that we must reciprocate immediately?
I am just as guilty as anyone else. I’m not trying to point fingers just point out that this wonderful phrase is dying out and I think that is a shame. When we do something worthy of a thank you, perhaps we should honor the person saying it with a you’re welcome. It’s not a competition to see who is the most thankful. It is about being gracious enough to accept that someone found value in what you did.
I promise to say you’re welcome more often.
Help me keep it alive.
Thank you for reading my blog.
