The words "You're welcome" have been replaced with "No problem." That's one of my pet peeves.

People who are perpetually late; glued to their phones; use text messages and e-mail predominately rather that phone calls; unkind people; complainers; those without any manners; pessimists; those who try to convert you to their religion or political affiliation

U R so right, I say "Your welcome" also..there is no etiquette these days.  Do not parents teach them manners?  I am 63, and I am appalled at the rudeness, unapprecition, that people have, especially young people.

My biggest pet peeve is ignorance of people, when you hold the door for someone or assist them in some manner, they just continue on without a simple thank you.  I usally say " your welcome " to these people to see if I get a reaction.

Hi Oklagramma,

 

Your handle brought to mind a story..  Having been raised in the South, I would entertain my bride (a California native) with colloquialisms which she had only heard on tv.  Sooo, when we were taking her first trip eastward - she was exposed to the real thing (speech-wise) in Oklahoma.  We had chatted with the gas station owner as we gassed up - and I know my bride was very pleased with the genuine friendliness - but, the best part came as we were getting back in our car and the lady gave us "Yall come bac now, ya heah?"

Even now - many decades later - the thought or mention of that occurrence brings smilesSmiley Happy to our faces.

It absolutely irritates me when I hear people insert an "x" in a word instead of just the correct "s". For example, I've heard people (and supposedly educated people) say 'exspresso', 'exsteem', 'exscape', 'exspecially'.
