"No Problem"

"Thanks!" "You're welcome."

The above acknowledging rejoinder seems to date back to the 19th century.

How about the edgier response, "No problem?"

Or: "Not a problem."

These I like.

"No problem" sometimes comes after a "thanks" for service or favor rendered, but implicitly, it's a sly reminder that many social interactions are "a problem."

Pretty funny when you think about it.
