Saying you're pleased with your haircut despite the deep inner sadness it's causing you
Saying "let's come back to that", meaning "please don't speak again during this meeting"
Inviting someone to a party, then providing a list of reasons not to come in case they don't fancy it
The shock of lifting an index finger from the steering wheel to thank a fellow driver and not receiving an acknowledgment finger in return
Looking away so violently as someone nearby enters their PIN that you accidentally dislocate your neck
Loudly tapping your fingers at the cashpoint, to assure the queue that you've asked for money and the wait is out of your hands
Saying "It's nothing, really" to indicate you're remarkably close to losing consciousness
Holding the door for someone with the tip of your outstretched foot, to indicate you've really no time to dilly-dally
Not wishing to tell someone they've misheard you, so simply soldiering into a completely different topic of conversation
Repeatedly pressing the door button on the train before it's illuminated, to assure your fellow commuters you have the situation in hand
Apprehensively approaching someone to ask if they're in the queue, as if creeping towards a firework that hasn't gone off
Reluctantly slowing your walk slightly when sensing a fast-paced stranger about to overtake
Going through a door because it's being held for you, regardless of your intended destination
Being incapable of entering a lift without whispering "sorry"
Flashing your indicators to thank a fellow motorist, just in case they missed your mini wave, thumbs-up and arm raise
Sitting awkwardly for your whole journey to accommodate the staggering leg spread of the gentleman beside you
