A while ago a colleague came up to me, all smiles, with the table below and says "look what I found. It's crazy. You don't really speak like that do you?!"
To which I, of course, replied, "no, of course not"....

The "May I suggest ..." made me grin, because that is one of the complaints of some foreigners working in the Netherlands. They are often used to getting clear directions, but instead Netherlands managers usually offer suggestions. And when they are questioned later about not having done the work, they are confused: "but he only said it as a suggestion!" ;)

“Quite good “ can mean totally opposite things in the UK. Depends upon tone of voice. Yes, it can be a polite way of saying that something isn’t particularly good, but many Brits (of a certain age?) will not be effusive with their compliments - so it is also used when something is actually very good.

From my 8-year old son:

What did the ketchup say to the mustard? "You mustard."
What did the mustard say to the ketchup? "You must ketchup."
