let say in a supermarket, do say thank you to the cashiers or the baggers who assisted you? do care to say thank you to anyone who makes you a favor? thank you is one sign of appreciation and it can bring happiness to someone who receives it... so do you say thanks to people? thanks! :-)

i usually do say thank you to people that have looked after us in a store just to be polite. i think saying please and thank you is a lost art almost these days which is sad. i have to keep reminding my kids to say them.

yeah, i also notice that, that some people don't really care to say thanks & please... children must be taught & reminded these things... so thanks and sorry for this very very late response...huh!

i say thank you to every one, if someone is a cashier, or im in a restaurant and the waiter brings the food over i mean i know there doing their job but i feel rude if i dont say thank you. Also i think it shows that you appreicate what there doing.

yes, that's a good habit, saying our thanks to people who render service on us... i guess that way, we can even make their work easier...and we can bring happiness on them as well...

I used to work with the public for many years so I always make sure I say thank you or have a nice day to the people that wait on me whether it is a cashier, bagger or even just someone that opens the door for me. I hate it so bad when I go into the store and the cashier is in a bad mood and treats you like crap. I was in my local grocery store the other day and the cashier was absolutely rude, she was a teenager and acted like she was too good to be working. As she was ringing my food through she was grabbing it like it was her worst enemy, I was thinking lucky thing I didn't buy any eggs...once she was all done she didn't speak a word to me not to even tell me my total I had to look at the screen to see what it was and then I cashed my bank card through and she laid my receipt on the counter and stood there not saying a word I had to pick and up and put it in my bag and then I said Have a wonderful day just to piss her off. I know everyone has a bad day but that isn't my fault, she is there to do a job and if she can't do it right then she needs to quit because I didn't go into the store to be treating like dirt.

hello froggieslover! i also used to work ith the public, well usually in customer service & cashiering...and i see to it that i will always be nice to our customers, always smiling to them and saying thanks or have a nice day to them, even i have some personal problems or im not in good mood, i don't carry them in work... that's why, in a situation like you said, it easily pisses me off...coz i can't figure out why they are acting like that, when they should have be nice to their customers...huh! and well, sometimes when i am also in a bad mood and i come across with people like them, sometimes i can't control myself from telling them that they should have not act like that and that they are so rude... but when im in good mood, i just smile to them and tell them that they should also smile...hehe thanks for sharing...
