In Brazil, almost everyone says "Obrigado, viu?" (? to indicate rising intonation).
I asked some Brazilians about what "viu" is supposed to mean and most said it's just something you say, although some suggested that it is the past tense of ver, as in "Thanks, did you see that?". Thinking about it, I think it's more likely to be a contraction of the past tense of ouvir, as in (ou)viu. So I'd like to ask: What's the "viu" in "Obrigado, viu?" really and what is it supposed to mean?
