The English say "Cheers"
I helped a man at the front desk of the library this afternoon. I must have done a passable job, because he said "Thank you."
I presumably said "You're welcome." because after he walked away he made a U-turn to come back to thank me for that.
"I almost left." He said. "But then I realized you said 'You're welcome" and I just wanted to thank you for saying 'you're welcome' because did you ever notice no one says 'you're welcome' anymore? It's always 'no problem' or 'sure' or something. I mean what's that all about? Anyway, so I just wanted to thank you. Thank you."
So I said "'S'all good."
I mean, I didn't want to show off.
