Re: A Polite Request #general

You're spot on, Marilyn.  I'm happy to help people, but when I've taken the time to do so, and they respond directly to me with another question or asking for clarification but they don't bother to say "thank you", I won't want to help them again.   The niceties have most certainly not been adhered to in such situations, as the person is taking our time and assistance for granted and is expecting even more help.  

Courtesy costs nothing, and no matter what your home language, saying thank you is the right thing to do when someone has helped you.
