Question for Restaurant Servers ...

... and other people who work face-to-face with the general public, such as cashiers, supermarket clerks, toll takers, etc. I was brought up to always say "thank you" when someone provides a service to me. So I pretty much always thank my server when he/she brings me anything (my order, the check, drink refills, etc.) Others I routinely thank include hosts/hostesses who seat me and give me a menu, all kinds of retail clerks, etc. So, here's the question -- do you get tired of hearing people say "thank you"? Do you feel obligated to respond (or are you required to by your employer?) I sometimes think it must get tiresome to hear "thank you" over and over all day, especially multiple times from the same customer (e.g., at a restaurant where there are often frequent interactions.) Your thoughts?
