I can't imagine how I've butchered the German language in my attempts to communicate here. However, I recently received an email from a German banker that made me laugh and made me feel a little better about how difficult it can be to get the wording just right:

I sent a note to Frau M., who had helped us set up our Deutsche Bank account, asking her a couple of banking questions.  Before she responded I visited the downtown bank and got my questions answered there, so I sent another note telling her just that.  Her response:  "That is great.  If you ever have any other questions, don't bother to ask."  I'm quite sure she meant "don't hesitate to ask."  It gave me a chuckle.  Hope it did the same for you.
