As is habit I suppose for our generation, I frequently say thank you for service to a waiter/waitress and also when paying a bill at the register of a restaurant or other other type of establishment. It is just a courtesy that I am in the habit of extending even though I am paying for the service.
Almost without fail, if I say it to someone in their 20's or younger, rather than responding with
"You're Welcome" they invariably, with a smile politely say "No Problem."
Has anyone else noticed this shift in responses?
Don't get me wrong. I don't think they are impolite, in fact I am sure the response means the same to them as you're welcome. I am just commenting on what seems to be a slight cultural change in communication.
What say you?
