What does it really mean when a CD say "Keep in touch"?

Do they really want to keep in touch? Or is it just a nicer way of saying "Eff off"?

Ok so lets assume that the CD really wants to keep in touch. Is that a greenlight to stalk him/her with our latest works or questions, say once every 2 weeks? And lastly, do CDs really remember that I am Jane, the kid with the flying cat ad who came in yesterday?

Depends if he's honest. If I were to say keep in touch, I would mean it. :)

"keep in touch"

means

"please leave now"

Actually, I don't think it means anything. "Start Monday" and "I'm calling security" are both clear vehicles of meaning, but between those phrases, most any other phrase needs to be parsed out of the context.

The clearest, most important thing you can take from the utterance is that you can call back.

the cd may or may not remember you. it is good to have incorporated what they've told you. (even if other cds like a campaign, if that cd says to kill it, pull it out of your book for this one visit) (it is good to jot down which cd says what, so you can keep their individual quirks straight at a later date).

"keep in touch" almost definitely means you shouldn't call the next week. Do send a thank-you note. but "The Secret Of My Success" approach of a daily phone call is not something most people could pull off.

don't feel all that special to have gotten "keep in touch" out of a cd. if you haven't heard it before, though, well that is some progress.
