Tone of expression ?

Tone of expression ?

I am a bit confused on the contexts you would use this, because it feels like a bit curt ? Would it be OK to use it for example, when you do a favor to someone that they want to repay, and you respond with this ? Or might it come across as a bit too aggressive ?

Hi Alan,

This expression is not impolite or aggressive it just means 'It doesn't matter to me'.

I can't quite see the situation you describe but if you mean 'there's no need' it would be 'Ce n'est pas la peine' or 'Pas de soucis' ( no worries).

Hope this helps!
