Do you usually say "thanks" or "thank you"?

I don't know why but I make an effort to say "thank you".

  • I say both, it just depends on the situation I guess. Thanks is more informal imo

  • I say both. If someone compliments me, I'll say thanks. But if someone gives me something or does something for me, I will say thank you.

  • Depends on why I say it. When someone hands me the salt I say "thanks". When they do something for me I was thank you. Also depends on who I am talking to. If it's my mom I say thanks. When it's my colleague I say thank you.

  • I say both, but I use Thank You when I need to be a little more formal.

  • I usually always say thank you to strangers and thanks to family or friend, I guess it just depends on the situation

  • I usually say thank you. There have been moments where I just said thanks but it happens rarely enough that I cant think of a time lately that I have done it :)

  • Never really thought about it. Both I guess. I always try to use some gratitude though because its the only way to battle rudeness.
