Sorry to bother you, dear.

"Sorry to bother you, dear"

This is how the official work email to my English male friend started. It was sent by another male, an Indian expat on a short work assignment in the UK, in his mid 20s. My friend is a rather serious 40 year old executive. This, of course, made him laugh as, although the phrase is acceptable and frequently used in the UK, one would never use it in such a context.
