When I am writing in English, I can take some time to think.
On the streets, in Berlin, sometimes someone says "Sorry!"
to me, and I often replied, "You're welcome!", knowing
(one second later) that this is a response only possible
to "Thank you!".
Now, I have found that among all the possible answers to
"Sorry!" and "Thank you!" there is one that is possible
in /both/ cases: "That's alright!".
So now I just try to always answer, "That's alright!".
