Ha ha! Hey Alan, I'm guessing you're from the UK where I've heard those expressions using "well" and on UK TV like Eastenders. But here in New Zealand (possibly also Australia, Canada & US?) we wouldn't talk that way unless we were trying to imitate Jason Stratham in "Snatch"! And we'd probably put on the accent as well Guv! Having said that, Your comment is well useful in order to remember using bien in this way! Thanks!
