No Worries

You see this phrase a lot in texts. Sometimes in emails. The meaning is obvious. Or is it?

My question is, is it really from Australia? And if so, how did it become an artifact of the email/texting technology? A part of Internet slang.

Just because it’s short?

Well?

  1. A few Brits (Britishers) told me it’s an Aussie thing. I don’t remember hearing it a lot during my one week stay in Australia. Maybe two or three times, and I distinctly remember “mate” being used all the time.
