No problem

[No problem] has replaced "You're welcome," but it implies something very very different. It implies that something that would have been a problem wasn't, only because of the very positive attitude of the person saying it.

For the rest of this hilarious and perceptive post about the phrase "no problem," (only in America, I swear), read this: http://functioncall.blogspot.com/2007/05/non-problematic-thinking.html.

It's great.
