Aarontology: SOMEONE IS BEING POLITE IN A WAY DIFFERENT THAN HOW I EXPRESS POLITENESS.
Secret Agent X23: I'm a pre-1980 person, but "no problem" doesn't, and has never, bothered me in the slightest.I will say, however, that when I first started hearing "You're good," it rubbed me the wrong way: "Oh, I'm sorry. I'll get out of your way." "No, you're good." Grrr. But I've long ago gotten over it. Whatever.
unyon: Aarontology: SOMEONE IS BEING POLITE IN A WAY DIFFERENT THAN HOW I EXPRESS POLITENESS.The question is whether its polite at all. I don't think 'uh huh' is a reasonable substitute for "you're welcome" either./Canadian//we're funny like that
serial_crusher: What about "it's all good"? Really? All of it? Every bit of it is good?
Aarontology: SOMEONE IS BEING POLITE IN A WAY DIFFERENT THAN HOW I EXPRESS POLITENESS.THIS IS AN OUTRAGE
Aarontology: Perhaps, but I really don't think it's worth getting riled up about.
unyon: I'm of the believe that shared civilization requires courtesy for humans to live in close quarters
unyon: The question is whether its polite at all. I don't think 'uh huh' is a reasonable substitute for "you're welcome" either.
James!: Luckily, my wife gave me a look that said, "Don't start."So your wife is tired of hearing your shiat so you brought your pointless rant to the internet.

I'm sure it has some noble roots, that used to go something like, "Thank you for letting me use your serfs," "You are welcome to use them anytime you need to, sir," but that doesn't even translate to what this guy wants, even the modern shorthand."Tap water, please.""You're welcome."That exchange makes no damn sense.""Tap water, please.""Here you go.""Thank you.""You're welcome."*That* makes sense, but then again, so would replacing "You're welcome" with "No problem".
