Thank you not welcome?

Why is that most people don't even bother to thank others for the things they do for them?

And why do we have surly security guards at airports who are stone-faced when you thank them for letting you through after their frisking is done?

At this rate, we're headed for an ungrateful world. Will "thank you" disappear from the vocabulary? Or will "you're welcome" be seen only at the entrance of a shop?

Even if someone's just doing his duty, what does it cost to thank them? Two syllables. Just two.

Come to think of it, so does "F you".
