There's a pattern in my behavior that I've noticed recently, which is that I now thank inanimate objects when they work for me. For instance, the autocorrect on the spellcheck stops me from spelling 'experience' with an 'a': "Thank you." My anti-virus pops up, telling me it found a virus and destroyed it: "Oh, cheers!" The microwave dings: "Ah, thank you very much." Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this!
