The Problem With ‘No Problem’ (Salon) Archives

Does no one say “you’re welcome” anymore? If you’re not aware of this phenomenon, simply say “thank you” a few times during your day – and read this take on the annoyingly prolific response, “no problem.”

    I have started asking young people (those apparently under 45): “whatever happened to ‘you’re welcome?'”
    The usual response is a blank stare, but sometimes we engage in snappy dialogue:
    ” You’re wha??” or “Whassat mean?” or “Oh you’re one of thse oldsters like my parents…I get busted by them too.” Bob Johnson 55
