No problem.

Today's One Point Wiki Wiki e-Xpression is an idiom,  “No problem.”

It is (to my thinking) a poor way to say “You’re welcome”.  I do’t use it and I don’t like to hear it in reply to my own, “Thank you.”

Quoting Wikipedia: “Some find the expression, particularly when employed in the service industry, to be rude, implying that a reasonable request could have been received as problematic or unwelcome.”

“Thank you.”
“My pleasure.” … sounds so much better.

IF you are doing business forget “No problem.” and replace it with any of these that tell your customers you appreciate them:

You are very welcome.
Our pleasure.
Happy to help.
Enjoy!
I am glad you like it.
Certainly!
Sure thing!
Thank you!
We are happy to serve you.

Often these posts come from words or expressions students in my class need to express an idea or thought in the simplest way. 

I’m happy to be able to help!
