    How do you reply when people say "Thank you"?

    Hi All,

    I want to know how do you reply when people say "Thank you". In my country, we just reply "You're welcome", except "You're welcome" what you would say in your country?

    WYH...

    "No problem" is also using in UK? I thought "No problem" is only in US.

    - You are welcome.
    - It was my pleasure.
    - You're more than welcome.
    - It was the least I could do.
    - It was nothing.
    - My pleasure.
    - Don't mention it.
    - Any time.
    - No big deal.

    Re: How do you reply when people say "Thank you"?

    There are many words which we use in reply if thank you. Just like

    You are welcome.

    It was my pleasure.

    It was nothing.

    My pleasure.

    Any time.
    These are the most common words for Thank you reply.

    "You're entirely welcome"

    Re: How do you reply when people say "Thank you"?

    Excuse me while I drag over my little soapbox, but I find "no problem" to be SO ungracious. I would love for this to disappear as a response to thanks.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
