Over the years I’ve mentioned the erosion of polite terms, specifically you’re welcome. Quite often the response I hear to someone’s gracious thank you is no problem or no worries. These expressions only diminish the other person’s thank you. Oh, was it supposed to have been a problem for the waiter to bring more water? Glad that was brought to my attention.
When asking guests if they would like more _________ I’m often answered with I’m good. What goes through my mind (even though I would never say it) is I’m glad you’re good but would you like more______.
The polite response to thank you is you’re welcome or the even more gracious my pleasure.
The polite response to would you like more_____ is either yes please or no thank you.
