"Hello, how are you?"
"Sorry, I am up to my neck now. I'll come back to you in a minute."

The phrase "take your time" comes to my mind, eventhough I don't know why. Maybe sometime someone once said that to me. How can I reply in such scenarios?

  • "Take your time" is a common reply. Simply saying, "No problem. I'm not in a rush/hurry." would be fine, or "I can wait," would convey the same thing. – Adam Blomeke Jun 7 '17 at 12:45
  • Are you texting? On the phone? In a chat window? I ask because come back to you is odd for a spoken conversation, unless you're putting a phone caller on hold. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jun 7 '17 at 13:29
  • It's happening in a chat window. – Lerner Zhang Jun 7 '17 at 13:53
