This is actually a reflection of older manners that I really miss.  When 
introduced we would indicate that it was a pleasure to meet someone.  When 
thanked we would say that it was our pleasure to be of service to the 
individual [rather than it being a burden].

This reflects rather more gracious interchanges than is often the case 
these days, I'm afraid.

                    	Have a safe and joyful day,
