And what they actually mean.

1: "I might join you later" = I'm not leaving the house today unless is on fire.
2: "Excuse me, sorry, is anyone sitting here?" = You have 3 seconds to move your bag before I end you.
3: "Not to Worry" = I'll never forget this.
4: Saying sorry as a way of introducing yourself.
5: "Bit wet out there" = You're going to need a snorkel because it's absolutely pissing it down.
6: Ending an e-mail with "thanks" as a warning that you're perilously losing your temper.
7: "Right then, I suppose I really should start thinking about possibly making a move". = Bye.
8: "it's fine" = It really could not possibly get any worse, but no doubt it will do.
9: "Perfect" = Well, that's that ruined then.
10: "A bit of a pickle" = A catastrophically bad situation with potentially fatal consequences.
11: "Not too bad, actually" = I'm probably the happiest I've ever been.
12: "Honestly, it doesn't matter" = Nothing has ever mattered more than this.
13: "You've caught the sun" = You look like you've been swimming in a volcano.
14: "That's certainly one way of looking at it" = That's certainly the wrong way of looking at it.
15: Saying "I have the 5p if it helps?" and never being quite sure if it helps.
16: "If you say so" = I'm afraid that what you're saying is the height of idiocy.
17: "With all due respect" = You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
18: Saying "You're welcome" as quietly as possible to people that don't say thank you but using it as a form to punish them.
19: Meaning of "I beg you pardon" = A: I didn't hear you. B: I apologise. C: What you're saying is making me absolutely livid.
20: "It could be worse" = It couldn't possibly be any worse
21: "Each to their own" = You're wrong, but never mind.
22: "Pop around anytime" = Please stay away from my house.
23: "I'm just popping for lunch, does anyone want anything?" = I'm getting my own lunch, now please remain silent.
24: Saying "I might get some cash out actually", despite approaching the cash machine and being 100% certain of getting cash.
25: "No, no, honestly, my fault" = It was exceedingly your fault and we both know it.
26: "No yeah that's very interesting" = You are boring me to death.
27: "Just whenever you got a minute" = Now.
28: "No harm done" = You have caused complete and utter chaos.
29: "I'm sure it'll be fine" = I fully expect the situation to deteriorate rapidly.
30: "Sorry, I think you might've dropped something" = You have definitely dropped that specific item.



All in good fun, my good British friends.

True ones are:
6, 8, 9, 10, 14, 16, 18, 19, 27


It's nice that you have an opinion, though.
