The Demise of “Thank You”   1 comment

What ever happened to cashiers saying “Thank You” to a customer after making a purchase?

I didn’t notice any thing in the obituaries about this demise of an age-old tradition.

I remember working for my father, who owned a farm market, and when a customer made a purchase you would always say “Thank You and Come Again”. We would even count out change to a customer: “That was $1.39 total. Out of five? This makes $1.40, $1.50, $2, $3, $4 and $5.” When’s the last time that happened to you?

Today, more often than not the cashier will ring up your purchase and throw your change in your outstretched hand, with your receipt and 6 coupons you will never use, and never grunt a word in recognition of your purchase. And I swear, the majority can’t make change without looking at the check out computer to determine how much you are due in return.

Ok, off my soapbox…for now

  1. I totally agree. Basic manners at least and common courtesy.
