    I am good

    Hello,

    What does I am good mean usually? I heard someone saying that when he/she was asked if he/she need any help in supermarkets. Does it mean I can do it myself, I do not need help right now?

    Thanks.

    Can I use the expression in the following scenario? Is this expression natural to native speakers? Thank you very much.

    A. Do you have any other questions?
    B. No, thanks. I am good.

    Speakers of BE do not use this expression unless they are imitating AE speakers.

    We say 'I'm fine' or 'I'm OK'.
