Oh, I say, spot on there.

Written by a geography teacher, I'll be bound.

old boy, old bean, old chap, but on the Q.T. I'm a bit of an odd-fish, but I hope none of this is O.T.T. ;-)

Good day to you sir! Some people might think that people still talk like this over in England. They would be looking for the dog and bone to ring home if we still did. Tip top, tally ho!

Well, one mate I speak with often, that lives in England does use some of those terms: and "on the QT" has become popular in writing over on my side of the pond.

I occasionally use terms I am familiar with, without any afterthought, just from my conversations with him over the years.
I only recently learned that a quid = a 'nicker = a pound; a fiver is a five pound note (seems logical enough)

I have heard "bugger", and "brilliant" used in ways we don't normally use them over here, and certainly "sod off" is not a common USA term ;-)
