I’ve noticed a troubling trend with young people replying “No Problem” when someone thanks them. Maybe I’m being overly sensitive but that sounds improper to me. What ever happened to simply saying “You’re Welcome?”
You are not being overly sensitive. It drive me crazy too. To say “no problem” to someone implies that there was, at one point, a problem. The proper response to a thank you is either “you’re welcome” or “my pleasure.” Just like at Chic-Fil-A.
Over the course of the next few weeks I am going to be sharing
some of the lessons I wrote about a few years ago when
I had a Dear Abby style column in Good Grit Magazine.
It was a lot of fun to write that one and
I hope you'll enjoy revisiting it with me here.
