Hello all, I'm wondering what the precise sense of the Norwegian phrase "det skulle bare mangle" is. I think that it's used as a response to "takk" sometimes (or any expression of gratitude or thanks), and my sense is that usually someone says "det skulle bare mangle" when they think that thanking them is, to use an English expression, "out of the question." For instance, after staying at a friend's house in Oslo, my wife was thanking her for letting us stay with her for a few days, and the friend said "det skulle bare mangle," which seemed to mean something like, "You don't even need to thank me. Of course I would let my friends stay with me for a few days." So, what exactly does "det skulle bare mangle" mean, and am I right in my understanding of the context in which it's generally used? På forhånd, takk.
