Once Shanna and I were at church and the pastor at the
time thanked Shanna for something, I don't remember what
anymore. What I do remember was his response after Shanna
had replied "no problem" or "it's OK."
He took issue with the reply.
He felt "you're welcome" was a better sentiment.
"No problem" or "it's OK"
seems to diminish the kind gesture by his way of thinking.
That stuck with me.
I do prefer a "you're welcome."
It does sound more sincere.
I try to say you're welcome.
It does convey that I was pleased to do whatever
it is I am being thanked for.
Funny how some things just stick with you.
Like the time Val Langooth's mother
called me an instigator.
Had to go home and look that one up.
