"Thank you Bob."
"You're Welcome Sue."
It seems like a simple enough response. Very pleasant and it shows a confidence and ownership of receiving thanks IMO. Nowadays you don't hear it that often though. So what happened to "you're welcome"?
The common response that I now hear goes like this........
"Thank You Bob."
"No thank You Sue."
No one willing to accept the thank you in this interaction. I don't know why stuff like this bothers me, but I think that it speaks more to our passive-aggressive/politically correct societal nature. It's almost like "you're welcome" is too aggressive a response for some reason.
Any thoughts? Am I way off base here?
