Let's add "phenomenal" to that list.

pds - I know why they ask that. They have to! Every major retailer is mystery-shopped by a third party company on a regular basis. The shopper has to go down the checklist to make sure the sales associate did everything properly, and made sure the customer was satisfied. Then they report it to their company. Of course the people at the grocery store know you, but for all they know, the nice lady behind you is a mystery shopper, watching their every move.

As for the "no worries" thing....I bet she started saying it after she saw the movie "50 first dates" it's in there constantly.

I do appreciate the "it's my pleasure" response to "Thank you". It shows class and proper etiquette. Saying "no problem" to me, means, "whether or not you were here, I was gonna do it anyway, so, like, whatever."

My other pet peeve, I truly can't stand when someone refers to their mistake as "my bad".

I tend to say "Oh it was no problem at all". Somehow saying "Your Welcome" feels smug when I say it.

What grates on my nerves worse than ANYTHING is the phrase "DUH!" or "Well DUH!" ESPECIALLY when a child say's it to it's elder. It just makes me want to introduce that attitude to a belt behind the woodshed

Running a close race behind "DUH" is:

1. "Whatever"
1. "Talk to the hand"

and where actions are concerned:

1. Adult's who suck a pacifier!

Are you serious?!? Or is "pacifier" a nickname for something else - if so, I didn't get it!

No seriously! There is a "fashion trend" where allegedly grown people carry around a Nuk and you can actually see them walking down the street sucking on it!

They've even started making pacifiers for adults!

It's sick!

I can not believe that this topic has arisen. < Did I make up that word? Anyway, I have my grandson's pacifier (binky) on my roller board/roll about for traveling. It's my identifer for when the man in the van takes out all luggage that looks exactly alike all being black. People ask me if that's on there due to my being afraid of flying. I say "heck no". It's there because it brings my grandson to my mind and I feel his presence. Honestly though, I should take a pix so you'd all believe me. His binky hanging from my suitcase. Very 'not' sheek.

OK - I tried to start this trend about 12 years ago when I bought pacifiers for some of the guys I worked with at a printing plant - they were such whiney babies. It didn't catch on then. I was before my time!
