Different ways to say you’re welcome are part of what people are looking for when trying to make somebody comfortable when they express gratitude.
There are occasions when the person receiving the kind words “thank you” is trying to respond to those saying it and the classic “ you’re welcome” might not seem right.
Do not mention it
This is another way of saying “you are welcome”.
It applies to situations when you did someone a very important favor that made a difference in their lives but it was done with a very little effort for you.
It was nothing to it
This does not actually mean you did nothing but in situations when people feel obligated cu say thank you more than once for getting them out of trouble you can use this instead of “ you’re welcome”.
Not at all
People say this instead of you’re welcome when they try to make the one thanking them comfortable enough to ask them for a favor again.
Usually when you are asked to fill in for somebody at work, take them for a ride in your car or help them get done a difficult task, people tend to hurry and say thank you, although not always these situations ask for a very special gratitude. This is why in this case it is perfectly fine to say “ no problem” instead of “ you are welcome”.
In very informal situations when you are asked to do small things like pass the salt, close the window and other related things , saying “sure” will show the people that you do not require a special gratitude for such a small thing.
This is another way of saying “you’re welcome”. You can use it when you repay a favor to somebody and they thank you or when you simply feel obligated to help and feel like no gratitude is required whatsoever.
It was my pleasure
There are more formal occasions such as those when being thanked by an older person, a higher position at work, your in laws or basically somebody who is very important to you. In this case saying “ It was my pleasure” has a special meaning because it will show the persons that you respect them.
There is no need to thank me
It may seem a bit long but in many relationships we form in our lives, at some point, somebody will feel compelled to say “ thank you” over and over again regardless the fact that this will make you feel uncomfortable. In this case this one of the different ways to say “ you’re welcome” is the perfect fit to respond to someone’s gratitude.
