In the past two weeks, about 10 checkout clerks have handed me my receipt and said "There you go." Now, it seems to me that this takes longer to say than "thank you" so I don't think they're doing it to save time. They actually mean "I'm doing you a service and here's the proof."

It's weird in that it started just recently and suddenly spread like wildfire here in Southern California. I still say "thank you", of course, since I've been saying it all my life.

After I say thank you, the clerk sometimes says thank you, sometimes says have a nice day. But they will never say "there you go. thank you. have a nice day." So something is lost in this exchange. Something I really miss - the fact that the clerk genuinely wants and appreciates my business. Of course, they don't They just want a paycheck.

Weird. If you're east of L.A., look for this new fact of life sometime in the coming years....
