If you missed when this did the rounds last year, it's a valuable tool for multi-national critique sites:

Brilliant, Mary! And a pretty fair assessment. It's like when my father says: "You've done awfully well." It means: "No more!"

Americans are much more direct, even in their euphemisms - my parents always used to say, "stop helping!"

"You must come for dinner" in Mary's link reminds me of the story of the hostess of a dinner party.

Long after everyone else had gone, one couple simply wouldn't leave. When they finally got up to go, she saw them to the door, and said: "It was lovely to see you. Do come again when you have less time."
