RG48.3 You’re welcome day

November 24th, 2007 by dk

We’ve had Thanksgiving Day. How about starting a You’re Welcome Day? Listen carefully and you’ll notice that people say “you’re welcome” less and less. Partly this is because more and more thank yous are insincere: “Thank you for shopping with us!” Partly it’s because we learn how to talk from the media and most people are so thrilled to hear their voice on the radio or TV that they’d never dream of telling a host “you’re welcome” when they are thanked for speaking into a microphone. And partly it’s because the phone companies no longer say hello when you call for information.
