comment What are informal ways to say “good bye”?
That's right, but it is indeed quite rare nowadays, see Tomalak's comment here. It has been much more commonplace a few decades back - in movies from the 50s/60s, you can hear people using it all the time.

Yup - the thing is, people won't know there even is such a thing if they don't know a language that uses it :-)
