you're welcome but no thank-you

Hi. Suppose you do me a favor but I show no sign of gratitude whatsoever.
What could you say to let me know that you expected a thank-you?
Does an unprompted you're welcome work?

Thanks! :)

    Hullo Machadinho. This is where sarcasm is at its most useful ~ say whatever you'd normally say in response to Thankyou, but in a tone of sarcasm [words in bold get the heaviest sarcastic stress]:
    Oh you're welcome
    No no, don't mention it
    It was a pleasure to help
    No really, think nothing of it
    ...

    Unless you want to be actively insulting, of course.
