Imagine you’re in a cafe and someone asks you whether you want a coffee. In English, the conversation might go like this:
"Do you want a coffee?"
And a few minutes later you’d have a coffee in front of you. But if you said this is French, the result would be very different:
"Voulez-vous un café?"
No coffee would arrive. Because ‘merci’ on its own like that means “thanks but no thanks”. You’re refusing. If you want to say “yes”, you would have to say “yes” (“oui”) or “please” (“s’il vous plaît”) or “yes thanks” (“oui merci”) or the like.
*sobs* I’m finally posting it.

This Anna Kendrick Little Mermaid SNL sketch is impossible to find (NBC ran into some legal issues with Disney)… watch while you can!
"Why would I need your hair? Mine is GORGEOUS! I mean it’s white, slicked straight up, & buzzed on the sides."

It is so exceptionally hard to pull off that cartoony look, but this chick like… knocked it out of the park. Perfection.
