    Proper reply for "Anyone else would have done the same."

    Please read the following dialog.

    A: Excuse me, sir. I think you dropped your wallet.
    B: Oh! How kind of you! I really appreciate you telling me.
    A: Not at all. Anyone else would have done the same.
    B: _______________________________________

    If you were Speaker B, what would you say to A? You want to be polite and compliment Speaker A.

    Re: Proper reply for "Anyone else would have done the same."

    "Thanks though, nonetheless" is one possibility.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or "That doesn't lessen my appreciation." or "Perhaps, but I still appreciate it very much."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
