Odds and Ends
Here's a thought

Danes also have a hard time realizing there's a difference between "I don't mind" and "I don't care", and how rude the second one can sound.
- What should we eat for dinner?
- I don't care.
In this situation, the average Dane would be trying to say "It's all good to me", but in English it comes out more as "Why the fuck are you even asking?".
Then a comment about my post could be "I don't mind the way they say it", but then again, they would say "I don't care about the way they say it", which means the opposite.
