Whatever happened to “You’re Welcome?”

The other night my wife and I went dining at a very nice, local restaurant. The service was very good, no complaints there.

But every time that we thanked our waitress for somthing that she did, like bringing us water, or extra bread, she would invariably respond, “Of course.”

After a while it became a tad annoying, so we stopped thanking her.

Then today I went to the supermarket and when I thanked the boxboy he responded, yes you guessed it ...”of course.”

what is wrong with people, since when did “of course” become an acceptable substitute for “yo are welcome.”

Next time someone tells me “of course,” I will just respond, “of course WHAT?”

Is it just me or is everyone else as annoyed as I am by this new “development?”
