It doesn't seem like coming up with a response to "thank you" should be that complicated. When you think about it though, there are a lot of options, and our response depends on what's happening in the conversation.
A listener named Peggy recently wrote to us about a response to "thank you" that she's heard quite a bit while listening to the radio.
"Over the past months, I've been noticing that when a radio guest is thanked, rather than the customary 'you are welcome,' they instead respond with 'thank you,'" she writes.
As the hosts of a radio show, we're guilty as charged.
