    Be cool!

    Can "Be cool!" be used to say goodbye among young peole?
    It's usually used to mean "calm down".

    Re: Be cool!

    It can be said in that context, but it doesn't really mean "good-bye".

    Re: Be cool!

    What does it mean when you part with someone? The same "calm down", which isn't suitable?

    Re: Be cool!

    No. "Be cool" has other meanings. One of them would be "Be well".
