The book, “The Road to Optimism Change Your Language, Change your Life” (Perry and Griggs) covers the topic of speaking in a positive manner. I read this book as part of Rick Grigg’s Mastery Academy. http://griggsachieve.com
It seems people now say, “No problem” instead of thank you. I know this has been a thorn in many people’s side, and I saw someone write into Dear Abbey about it.
When you thank someone (usually younger), they reply “No problem” instead of you’re welcome. Why do people not say “You’re welcome” any more? Their response has a negative connotation to it, and seems to dampen the whole conversation.
Anyone else notice this trend? Comments?
