Lim:i came to a situation once when i say 'thanks' to someone and he corrected me on the spot that i should say 'thank you'! Is that a must when talking to someone that in a formal situation we should say ' thank you' instead of 'thanks' ? Please guide me.
It is difficult to say exactly when each one is appropriate. If I were being handed my degree certificate during a graduation ceremony, I would say thank you. If someone passed me the salt at table, I would say thanks.
People are waiting to help.
