Hello, I love you

I think there is some confusion of the English language here in Hong Kong. Numerous times while walking through Toys R Us in Central we were greeted with "You're Welcome!" as if it were a greeting of hello by the employees. Endearing, isn't it.

"Excuse me," while trying to get by an aisle.
"You're welcome!"

"Hello," to a shopgirl.
"You're welcome!"

"Do you have any Iron Man toys?"
"You're welcome!"

Oh well, I guess it is a nice change from the "out of stock" we hear every day in Manila.
