At school I was tuaght to say MERCY and if good service given, "MERCY BOW COO", but I notice that a lot of French use merci bien, even on the news tonight a French Minister was told "merci bien" when leaving a meeting.  Is there a difference or is just a preference or even regional variation, am opinion by French nationals would be appreciated.

Sounds like "Je vous en prie". Doc always says this to me after I have said "Merci docteur" as I leave his surgery. I think it can be used to mean "After you" in a doorway or as a reply to something like "May I come in" "Please do".............John not Jackie
