How do you respond to “thank you”?

Usually I’ll just instinctively smile and cheerfully say “uh huh!” or “yep!”, but some people find that rude I guess. Sometimes I’ll say “you’re welcome”, but I sort of feel like that’s essentially saying “oh yeah I’m so great you’re welcome that I did something for you” lol.

Do you think it’s rude to say anything less than “you’re welcome” or “my pleasure”? What did you normally say?

    You could always say "no problem", "happy to do it" or some other thing to acknowledge their thanks.

    A quick 'You're welcome' or 'Not at all' is plenty, with a pleasant smile or nod.

    I just say your'e welcome, nothing else to say really, don't make too much of it, it is not really important is it?

    "Not at all" is a classic British response.

    "Glad I could help."

    'No problem' or 'Happy to do so'.

    De nada, you're welcome, no problem, OK - all acknowledge the thanks without making out that you were a martyr in performing the gesture.

    “My pleasure”, and a smile.
