"What an interesting idea!" - "He is interested in my idea!" - "The idea sounds like complete rubbish to me."
"Hello" - "Hello" - "I hate you"
Don't worry, we Brits hate everybody so no need to get offended by that :-)
I think Americans do this a lot too. Or maybe they just do it to me, hahahaha *cries*
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."
Haha! Maybe I'll have to do a Japanese one as well. I do know they're famous for their politeness.
You definitely need to do a Finnish one. We never say anything unless we mean it: http://finnishnightmares.blogspot.fi/

Finnish people are the best people <3
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."

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.
