"Yes I'm already on my way." (I totally forgot about that and am still in my underpants)

"Sorry, gotta hang up, I got chicken on the stove" (I really have to take a dump)

"Hey man, nice to see you!" (I forgot you exist and was happier for it)

"Yeah, that was great!" (that was terrible and everyone knows it)


Go!

When talking with a devout religious person and you are an atheist: "I will pray for you"

What it actually means:
"You will burn in hell for eternity for your sins, you disgusting excuse for a human being."

More politeness than outright lying but all of this:


So basically, everything a Brit says has a meaning quite far from the words said? Just say what you mean. People aren't going to commit suicide over it.

"Thats not bad"

"Quite good"

"Very interesting"

Definitely have different meanings.

Congratulations on catching up.

It's called manners. Americans have none and call it "straight shooting" or some other stupid thing. You're a whole nation of people who claim "I tell it like it is" when what you mean is "I'm an asshole with no tact".

I can't say I've thought much differently about Britons and Americans in terms of manners and politeness. Is there really that much of a difference? One would think white lies are pretty universal.

Lol, what are you even basing that off of? Some quotes from a movie?

That's not true at all, I wish it were more true actually. People are so fake with eachother, it makes it impossible to trust what somebody says.

Your version of tact is being a pretentious, duplicitous twat?

That is a very bold proposition......

Oh, sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry(what I hear about every five seconds when talking to an English person) Really, I have no problem with English people in general. Some of those sayings I can deal with, some are unnecessary, and some of them are complete lies. Certainly telling someone the truth is more polite, right? We're fake too, but not quite in the same way. I assure you that I'm more polite in a formal situation and would hope that you are too. On a side note, If you think we're a nation of assholes, you've not met the french

You've never met a Minnesotan then, have you? People from the state of Minnesota tell polite lies all the time. Next thing you know, they're backstabbing you to the neighbors, all in a polite way, of course.

Anyway, most "straight shooters" know how to be polite more than an Englishmen who insults an entire country.

"We'll call you back" (I'm not going to hire you, you worthless piece of sh!t)

"Tastes good" (I'm gonna throw up)
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

ALL HAIL CELESTIA

Okay, so you're NOT congratulating him on catching up. I see how it works.

So the English have no manners, you think Americans have all the manners and they don't call it "straight shooting" or some other clever thing. They're NOT a part nation of animals who imply "I tell it like it is" when what they don't mean is "I'm not an asshole and I have tact".

Perfect except animals instead of humans. That's the same thing

EDIT: If Zackk had got back to me sooner I might have been bothered to carry on.
