Thank You In Advance?
Vocabulary & Idioms
I am quite curious if it's quite logical and reasonable to say 'thank you in advance'. I know it's quite common, but I've never used it. Would a native say so? I would also like a few comments (of yours) on this.

Yes, I'm constantly amazed at how some people here never say 'please' or 'thank you'.
I'm starting to wonder if politeness is just not a feature of some cultures at all.
