Do you find it rude when we don't say 'thank you'?

ALL PROFESSIONALS! Do you find it rude that if we ask a question, we never thanked you for responding? I've seen a ton of discussions in Career Village that professionals don't even get the "thanks" for responding to the question. I got curious if you find it rude hehe

I would like to formally thank the Career Village for continuously posting my questions and to the professionals who take their time to respond and give valuable information to my questions. I am grateful to this community. :) (virtual hugs & handshakes)

Ann’s Answer

My take on this: I'm here to help. If I get thanks, GREAT. If not, I did my best to help someone with their questions. I certainly don't expect it, but as a rule of courtesy, in general, I think it's important to be grateful. And it's never too late. I once got thanks for a project I worked on years prior with children. The teacher told me that thanks to my help, their reading level jumped 3x higher.

Have a good day!

All very valid comments and recommendations. I have to admit that I am not sure if the one asking the question can respond to the answers provided. Has anyone been thanked?

Lisa’s Answer

I recommend that as much as possible to say thanks even if the response we get does not answer the question. It’s a form of appreciation for at least attempting to answer and taking the time to respond. :)

Marisa’s Answer

While I do think it is a good general practice to acknowledge someone's gesture and to show appreciation- I do not find it rude if I don't receive a thank you.
Always appreciated when I do receive a thank you :)

No, technically not rude at all. Forums like this are designed to answer the questions and those who post anything will not be expecting any responses back. But, it will always be good if a person acknowledges and reply back!

Nicole’s Answer

I love it when I receive a thank you! I never expect it and I am not offended when I don't get it, but it makes me feel great to know my time and knowledge is appreciated.

Jerome’s Answer

It's nice to receive acknowledgment for effort, but that's not why we provide answers. However, return comments do help us understand when our efforts are on-target and when they could be improved.

Ma. Edgie’s Answer

It is not technically rude, since the essence of career village is to raise questions and concerns and answer or give advice to the people who have questions. However, saying kind words and acknowledging the people who answers your question by saying thank you would make them extra happy whenever they saw you saying thanks.

take care! :)
