It's the least I could do.
Really?

When you thank somebody for something, and they respond " It's the least I can do!", doesn't that just sort of piss you off?

Really? You couldn't do less?? Well hey motherfucker, how about putting some effort into it, and then I can really thank you for something substantial??

Or at least let me know up front that you're going to slack off on the job, and then I can thank you accordingly??

Like "Gee thanks for almost nothing, you lazy prick!"

I' m just trying to keep the value of thanks on par with the effort involved...

Thumbsup

Well I could careless, but that takes effort, so this is the least I could care. Tongue

Perhaps you're misrepresenting the intention behind that phrase for humorous effect, but the way I translate it is: "You've done so much for me that this is just a small repayment for what I owe you."

The least I could have done was not reply but instead I went above and beyond. Smile

They could pray...which would be the least they can do. Tongue

They might also send thoughts along with the prayers thus doubling up their efforts and, in a twist of events, still be the least they could do. Blink
