Money, advice, help, whatever?

Are you an unconditional kind of person or do you think it is common manners to get a "thank you"?

Just crossed my mind. I, for one, don't ever expect one...so i don't get disappointed.

Nice to get one , but in this day and age don't really expect it.Just hope I make an impression so maybe the next person gets one.

Do you expect a "Thank You" when you give something?


Expect, no. Appreciate, yes.

A lot of the problems begin with not knowing how and when to say "no" to some people....

YES, we are sooo blessed that I think most take it for granted.

No. I say "no" because the gifts I give- I already know the recipient will appreciate it. I don't give them random dumb shit and then get pissy because I didn't get a TY. If I don't think they will appreciate the gift, I don't give them it. When they thank me for it... It's like "Duh, I figured you'd like it". I basically don't appreciate the sentiment of a TY, FWIW.

Common courtesy would be to say thank you. I always say thank you when given something. Do I expect it? I would have to answer honestly and say yes.

Hell, I say thank you when the waitress brings me the check. I say bless you when people fart even.

Courtesy, you can never go to far with it.

Yes, but it does not need to be effusive...just a simple "Thanks!" will do fine.



Thank you

I just helped a member finish assembling his AR.

He had everything but the barrel assy. I had a like new spare post-ban. I installed it on his AR and when he fired it his smile was thanks enough for me. I told him to use it as long as he needs it. I know he wants a no-ban, so I'll swap it out again as soon as he gets one.

Its the way I was raised. I always say thank you and I;m put off by those who say nothing when given something.

Just flat-out poor manners not to say "thank you."

But then again, my mother was born and raised in the South so she didn't have any of that rude yankee blood.

in the short term? no.

long run?

I've never gave anything that didn't come back......

YES. Do I expect it in this day and age? No. Do I want it? Yes. If I am putting effort of doing something special I think I should get it.

I don't expect anything from people. If they say thank you, I say your welcome. It's really that simple.
I gave a bunch of magazines to someone a while back, I even paid for shipping. I really can't remember if he said thank you or not. It doesn't matter, I'm sure he is happy. That's what makes ME happy.
