The other day I went into a store (actually its been happening to me for YEARS) and bought a couple of 6's of Great Lakes "Conway" beer. The fella there looked like he might have been a retired businessman or just someone who wanted to do something on his own, but professional and courteous non the less. I asked a couple of questions to which he replied helpfully and upon the completion of the transaction....he thanked me and I said "your welcome" What seems SO unusual about this?????... The other day I went into a store (actually its been happening to me for YEARS) and bought something, I can't remember what, but upon the completion of the transaction....this inner city urban type person said to me "YOUR WELCOME"...real snotty like. Now am I confused or is it MY freakin' money that provides them with a job?... or should I be thankful to them for taking my money? I just don't get it. I was raised to be courteous and polite. To thank people who did kind things for me and to hold a door open for a woman. Have things really gotten to the point where store clerks think they are doing us a favor by being on the job so we can get what we need????? Next time, I'm just going to say "NO!!!!!, YOU"RE WELCOME"
