Does That Count As Absolution?

I'm endlessly amused by some of the funny things people say as liturgical responses. Here's my most recent example:

Priest: The Lord has forgiven you. Go in peace.

Penitent: Same to you.

That makes me think of this story I heard about a technical malfunction while celebrating Mass.

He was talking and no one could hear him. He shrugged his shoulders and said, "My microphone's not working."

To which the congregation responded, "And also with you."
