back at you


Croatian - Croatia
I was discussing with my English teacher about a particular thing..
After we had agreed upon it, I sent her this smile " :) "

She replied
"back at you"

What did she mean?

    It means, "same to you!" In other words, she's sending the same smile back to you.

    "Darling, you look great today!"
    "Back at you!" ( = "You look great, too.")

    "Have a great day."
    "Back at you!" ( = "I hope you have a great day, too.")
