Jag fick faktiskt en förklaring direkt skickad till mig, som jag nog aldrig fick vidarebefodrad. Så här lyder den: - Be careful using the phrase "Hello Sailor", I believe it was orginally used by - prostitutes who where trying to get some business out of navy men who were on - shore leave. It is normally a flirtatious statement a woman uses on a stanger - who's she is trying to get to know better. I think it is also used more by older - woman (kind of a 1940's kind of phrase) - - "Nothing Happens Here" --- to tell you the truth I don't know if I've heard - this as a phrase. If I have I must not have thought much about it. But I think - you are right. At least that would be my guess.
