‘That’s so interesting, I would love to hear more,’ translates as ‘what a load of s****’ while ‘could we consider some other options means ‘your idea sucks’.

Keeping up a convincing British accent, Holly went on: ‘It’s probably all my fault’ actually means ‘It’s entirely your fault’.

In a second part, she added that ‘with the greatest respect, I hear what you’re saying’ really means ‘You really are an idiot’ while ‘That’s not bad’ means ‘That’s good’.

When speaking on the phone, if a British person says ‘Oh by the way I did just want to mention, if it’s not too much trouble’ actually translates as ‘this is the only reason we’re talking right now’.

‘I was a bit disappointed’ means ‘I’m super annoyed’ according to Holly, while ‘I might join you later, text me where you’ll be’ means ‘wild horses couldn’t drag me away from this house.’,

She finished the second clip by saying ‘honestly, it doesn’t matter’ in fact means just the opposite.

In a third video she explains how ‘right then, I really should start about thinking to make a move’ means ‘I’m bouncing’.

People found the clip hilarious with many taking to TikTok to share their thoughts.

‘Heard them all in the passive aggressive corporate world,’ said one.

‘The English passive aggressiveness is unparalleled,’ wrote another. 

‘As a Brit I can confirm the  veracity of these translations,’ added a third.

‘This is 100% accurate,’ commented a fourth. ‘Not even sarcastically, this is how everyone I know communicates’.
