I'm not suggesting that it WAS a problem...

The proper response to "Thank you" is "You're welcome".  The proper response is NOT "No Problem".  If I wanted that response, rather than saying "Thank you", I would've asked "Was that a problem?"

Am I the only one annoyed by this usage?

P.S.  I've heard "competency" used at least a half-dozen times this week.  Kill me now.  And, ironically, killing is something Marines are good at...part of their competence.  Which shouldn't be a problem.

Thank you.

  1. Yes, I find that "no problem" response annoying as well.
    Competency is definitely over-used. But I am wondering why it didn't have the "core" modifier. As in "core competency".
    Killing is a core competency for the Marines so someone could have helped you out at that conference.
    Peace out.
