01. My car is being serviced at the moment, so I'm using John's. Is John's car better or worse than yours?
02. Generally ok. Did you mean to say: 'Prince Charles' sunglasses?!
03 Be careful, it's dark outside! It's ok, I've got a torch.
('Watch out!' feels old-fashioned to me.)
(Note: torch - British; flashlight - American) I have no idea what a stan baton is, so I have not included it. Certainly nobody in my part of southern England has ever spoken about a 'stan baton', and my spell checker does not recognise 'stan'.
04 I have a few friends in LA. I would like to have some friends in LA.
(I don't know if Americans generally put full stops [periods] in L.A.)
05 Didn't you used to have a dishwasher? Yes, but it broke down and we haven't got one at the moment.
06 All ok.
Note that I am middle-class white British. Americans might have different notions.
