The "Hi, yourself" Phenomenon

Jack: "Hi."
Darlene: "Hi, yourself."

I cannot express to you enough how much I ABHOR the usage of "Hi yourself" in books!!! Why is it used so much? Is it actually a normal greeting in parts of the country, parts of the world, or did one writer use it one time and every other writer out there decided they just had to use it too?

Please give me the answer!

In the meantime, I am going to take a running tally of each book I find it in . . .
