Good luck with that.

I always think it's odd how many people (with English as another language throughout the world) speak it with a US twang...

I suppose it's not that odd, it's the power of popculture.

i don't mean to be rude because your english is obviously far better than any of my piss poor language skills. i can say library in three different languages though.

anyway you've just typed privet instead of private. this has amused me no end because it's a type of hedge. 12 years giving gardening lessons.

sorry, i'm a bad person.

This is not the correct response to "How do you do?". The correct response to "How do you do?" is "How do you do?"

I don't think I've ever said "How do you do" even once in my life.
