I work in the food industry; mostly retail right now (soon to change to fine dining again), and cringe at the the way the younger ppl (17-20) are addressing our customors. Maybe I'm just old, but when a customer says thank you I hear "yeah" or "no problem" from a coworker, I just cringe. I always say "you're welcome" or "thank you". Is it just me or is this the future of food service?
