Give “Thank You”, Get “Thank You”

Laura Trice, in this video, reminded us of something that we have known so well, but we often tend to forget; “thank you”. I think we was taught to always say “thank you” whenever we received something and we sedulously conformed to it when we were young; our parents made sure we complied. But somehow in the trip to adulthood, we no longer care about it.

It’s important. Expression of gratitude is important. That’s what Laura Trice tried to convey in this short video. And she closed the video with interesting point; asking for “thank you”. Why asking for “thank you” feels odd? Why is it normal to ask for refill for your Chinese Tea pot in a restaurant, but it’s very odd to ask someone to thank you for the favor you have done for that person?
