Being well travelled army types, I am sure we have all inculcated some choice or typically British phrases upon the minds of foreigners. So what is the most incongruous or bizarre and unexpected English phrase you have heard a foreigner use or have taught them? My favourite comes from the mouth of my twin brother's 6 foot tall Russian born, ethnic German model girlfriend. I complained to her one day that I had phoned knowing she was in and yet there was no answer. She responded ' Vell, I heard ze telephone ringing, but I couldn't be arsed to get up and answer it. Well done girl! I pmsl. I have also heard her say to my brother 'G*****, you are az lazy as shuck vater' which is 200% 'Norn Iron'. Has anyone else heard any amusing vernacular from the mouths of foreigners?
