The use of Propio?
Today, as I was exiting the elvevator, I said to the other person "con permiso" which is a polite way to say "excuse me" or more literally "with your permission". Every other time in my experience this has been followed by "adelante" which, of course, means "go ahead".
Well, today, the other occupant responded with "propio", which I can guess means "it's yours" (the permission for which I asked).
My question is this. Are there other responses to "con permiso" besides "adelante" that the folks on this forum are familiar with? Or, what might be the appropriate 3 second back and forth as you exit an elevator?
Propio is common among educated people
One can also say Pase Ud
And Con permiso is the best way to initiate.
Pásale (México), also used when somebody lets you in their home
I used to hear 'perdone Vd' - can't think of anything else....
