  3. Generally in life people find it difficult to say thank you, last year December my husband’s younger sister who was in school came to collect money from him, unfortunately my husband had no money then and told her to come back in a month. She cried all through the night and said she was going to miss her exam if she doesn’t pay up, so I decided to take money from the little money I wanted to use to get wares in my shop. To my surprise after giving her the money she didn’t say thank you. It was as if I was given a blow , not as if the thank you was really a big deal but realizing I had to discomfort my self to make hef happy and yet there is no sign of appreciation made me feel extremely sad. If people can learn Tobe thankful the world will definitely be a better place.

  4. Everyday I teach my children to be say thank you to people when they do things for them, I believe if parents do this by the time the children grows up and get married they won’t find it difficult to thank their partners. So it begins from home

  5. I don’t need my partner to just say thank you, say it indeed not verbally. Show me you really appreciate by your actions not even necessarily saying thank you. For instance what if I am cleaning the house , washing the dishes and doing laundry and he goes to get me some snacks , juice to make me relax . I would even prefer it more than an ordinary thank you

  8. Is it wrong for your boss to say thank you. Most of the boss I have worked with hardly ever say thank no matter how you go out of your way to get something done for them

  9. I once gave money to a friend who came to borrow money, Infact I dashed him the money but he never said thank you. He collected it as if it was his right, so I said to him let me check the money, it seems there is one torn that I mistakenly added to it. Immediately he gave me back the money, that was end of story. I can’t dash my hard earned money to someone who can’t appreciate it.
