    Listen, don't mention the war. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it all right.

    I’ve only been once but the only things you really need to know are “toilet and beer” ;) which are both pronounced the same in German as English

    haha talk about lost in translation, I assumed the term would be familiar to everyone, but maybe it's Australia-specific. Basically you order online and then collect from the store. Very popular here for grocery shopping.

    Oh! I see, I’m not sure if we even have a phrase for that yet, we have “curbside pickup”

    I forgot my early rising puts me in a different time zone, I could have clicked on your profile too....

    Advertisers here in Germany think everything is cooler when it's english.
    One great line was "come in and find out" by a perfume chain.
    It seems some found it misleading and were afraid not to find out again.

    It is almost everywhere, it's just not a standard phrase. Usually something like "buy online and personally pick up from store/warehouse", and translated. Not every website is going to use that phrase.

    Sometimes specified under shipping in your basket (just the picking up part).

    click and collect?
    it's not as catchy as 'online order and self-delivery system'
