So every time I thank someone and they say, “no problem” or “no worry’s”, it bothers me.
When did “you’re welcome” or “my pleasure” go away? Miss Manners has got to be having a cow by now.
Or when did we start assimilating the Aussie lingo? Was it when Crocodile Dundee came out? BTW, I never thought Mick Dundee was cool. His hat was lame, he had bad hair, and his outfits were a cheap knock off of Buffalo Bill’s get ups. He was a dork.
Now Robert Redford on the other hand, he was/is cool. Jeremiah Johnson? Are you kidding me. Now that dude, was super cool. If I ever got the chance to have a new look I’d ask to look exactly like Robert Redford.
When someone says “no problem”, is that because they don’t want to acknowledge you thanking them? When they say “no problem” are they really saying, “You can thank me if you want, but I didn’t ask you to thank me. So if I didn’t ask you to thank me, then I don’t owe you a you’re welcome”.
Or what about “no worry’s”? Isn’t “no worry’s” a way of saying, “I really don’t have anything to say and I certainly don’t have any original thoughts. I just say what my friends do”. When someone replies with “no worry’s”, aren’t they admitting their mind is blank?
The next time someone says “no worry’s”, I’m going to ask them to spell it.
I don’t want to talk like everyone else. I don’t want to assimilate another cultures language. I want to get better at English. And I want to have good manners.
