Oct, 11, 2022

Saying “thank you” is a polite formula and one that works. Saying it speaks volumes, and since timing is everything, be on your A-game regarding this expression.

Say “thank you”…

  1. When you are least expected to say it – it will make you a better person.
  2. When someone gives you advice or assistance.
  3. When you make a retail purchase.
  4. The obvious – when someone compliments you.
  5. When you make a mistake, say, “thank you for pointing it out.”
  6. When someone gives you constructive criticism. Yes, even criticism.
  7. When you’re running late, turn the tables by saying, “I’m so sorry I was late. Thank you for waiting.”
  8. To comfort someone, such as your best friend whose dog died, say, “Thank you for sharing it with me. I know this must be so hard for you.”
  9. When you receive unsolicited advice you may not have asked for.
  10. When in doubt! It can never hurt!
