THANK YOU….Tim Dunlop says Americans

THANK YOU….Tim Dunlop says Americans ? unlike Aussies and Brits ? have figured out what to do when they receive a compliment: say “thank you.”

He’s right. It actually took me quite a few years to figure this out for myself, but if you’re the kind of person who gets self-conscious when complimented, remember Tim’s advice: just say “why, thank you very much” and move on. That’s all it takes.
