Hello everyone!

 

I always thought that the expression "for good" should be only used to express something like permanently, forever, as in "he has moved out for good".

 

However, I was attending a staff meeting today and, at the questions session, some people in West Virginia and Montreal answered "for good" meaning "no questions" (we were asked if we had any questions, and those guys answered "for good").

 

I was wondering if this is a common way of express that you have no douts... Have you ever heard this expression used in such fashion?

 

Thanks!!
