Steady On

Yesterday, we paused to listen to some musicians at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. An obnoxious fellow knocked over the case the players had set forth for the receipt of tips. He then charged into me and returned to continue his assault. He proceeded to help himself to some of the bills left by the appreciative audience. After he deliberately threw me an elbow, I had opportunity to use the British phrase "Steady On" mentioned by me in a comment rejoinder to this post. Be careful what you wish for.

Steady on! *big grin*

You must've been so happy to be able to use it. And so soon! (Whenever I find one of those words it takes so long for the opportunity arrives I forget.)

I've not heard Steady on as a phrase for years. It may be the places I live in, and the people I associate with but C**T would probably be the phrase of choice. I think I prefer the former.
