  3. The Japanese are even more this way - they almost never directly say anything negative.

    American asks directions:

    What Japanese person says:"Ah, hm, well, lets see. Maybe if you went this way...."
    What you hear: "They're thinking about how to direct me there."
    What they mean: "I have no idea where this place is. Please ask someone else."

    1. Haha! Maybe I'll have to do a Japanese one as well. I do know they're famous for their politeness.

    2. You definitely need to do a Finnish one. We never say anything unless we mean it: http://finnishnightmares.blogspot.fi/

    4. I live in Japan, and I've heard a few. Most memorable is, "Aren't you cold?" - "They're worried about my well-being!" - "You're dressed like a slut."

  5. In my homeland of Los Angeles, California, if you smile at me with a knife behind your back, I will stab you in your motherfucking throat.
