Cultural Pet Peeve: “No Problem”

I’m not sure if I’ve posted this pet peeve of mine before, but my wife also shares it…

When someone says “Thank You”, the proper response is “You’re Welcome”. The wrong answer is “No Problem”. If someone is thanking you for something; you have served them in some way & they are showing their appreciation. They don’t care if it was a problem for you or not, or if you are being compensated in some other way. They are showing you that you were appreciated, you should show them that you appreciate them as well… maybe you’ll get a bigger tip!
