    I Think Saying "thank you" Can Make Someone's Day Better.

    It doesn't matter what mood I'm in, it doesn't matter where I am at. I will say "thank you" whenever I feel the situation calls for it. I love the smile or the "you're welcome" that is returned to me. I just feel a warmth inside of me. The kind that can come when you feel you've...

    And I feel happy doing so.

    I really value appreciation of giving. If someone, willingly or unwillingly fulfils your expectation or extends your vision, I believe their action should be thanked. Rarely, I lose control and repeatedly thank someone as if I am trying to return their favor.

    When I was in elementary school,

    my favorite person was not any of my teachers, not my principal, not my school nurse, but John the custodian (Not his real name). Every day without fail I would find him in the cafeteria or the hallway and tell him about my day and the cool things I was learning. I talked to...

    The simple act of saying thank you,

    is a demonstration of gratitude in response to an experience that was meaningful to a human being.

    I always say thank you to let a person know I

    appreciate what they did for me. Everyone should thank each other so others don't think you are taking them for granted.

    For me it´s an act of politeness always to say

    thank you. I also educated my son to say always thank you. But many, many kids (and also adults!) in today´s time don´t know how to say thank you.

    I played one year of football in Jr High School.

    I half joke that I was the kind of player who said excuse me whenever I ran into another player!! Needless to say, my football experience was short lived !

    'Thank you' is the best prayer

    that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding. Alice Walker

    I get so irritated when I spend the time send a

    gift, and there are no thank you's. II gave a girlfriend tons of expensive baby things, went to her shower and bought her a gift... no thank you. I should have known when I did not get a thank you for her high school graduation. My nephew recently graduated from high school. No...

    To say thank you to someone

    who smiles in recognition is such a comforting feeling, it takes no time at all to do but can really be appreciated .

    2 words. I don't know what is

    so difficult for some people to say. It's so simple and means a lot to the other person. It elevates your status also. Doesn't it feel good when someone thanks you??

    personally, I think it is only good

    and proper etiquette to thank someone who is providing a service to me. I do not like the new 'no problem' replacement for 'you're welcome' though - there was an excellent commentary on CBS Sunday Morning a while back by the movie critic David Edelstein - one of his comments...

    I always say "Please"

    and I always say "Thank You" it's such a simple thing to do and sometimes it makes a difference to the person you are thanking. I also try very hard to be as genuine as possible when asking"Please" and saying "Thank You" If you cant say it and mean it than leave it out.
