    yes. ’you’re welcome’ seems to be gone
    maybe the influence ,although not intended, is from the Spanish reply to ‘thank you’ which is “De nada”
    translated to:
    ’it’s nothing’ or ‘no problemo’

    Several years ago, while lunching with a friend from Alberta, he commented:“You can always tell an American (US) from a Canadian by saying thank you. The Canadian will respond with ’you’re welcome.’ The American will reply ‘no problem.’ "It was his polite Canadian way of saying people from the US were rude.

    I’m delighted to know I’m not alone in disliking this response. Sometimes it is(was) a problem and they fixed it. The response is the same, which is a mite ridiculous!

    I overheard manager training a new employee at a coffee shop. She told the trainee that the servers are not to say your welcome because they are doing their job of pleasing you. I still say thank you, though.

    Apparently North Americans are the only ones who say “You’re welcome’”. Most languages do not have a term for “You’re welcome”. When you do a service for someone, that is what it it. A “No problem”, “It was nothing” or, how about, “My pleasure” is appropriate. When my mom thanks me for something that I SHOULD do as part of daughterly duties, I always say it’s “My pleasure” or “No problem”. In my home, my husband demands a response to his “Thank you”, but will not respond or acknowledge with a “Thank you”, much less a response to that, to anyone else.

    I went to “My pleasure” some time ago.
