They say "auto" and "mobile" ("moh-bile", as in the British way: https://youtu.be/0kotgib_jRM?t=31). 

I don't have the heart to tell them, especially considering how I butcher their tongue. :sad:

It really depends in which part you are. A lot of Dutch vocabulary is Anglicised. We have subtitles on TV where most countries dub their own language as replacement voice over.

Oh, I am extremely grateful--and in admiration. That's why I don't have the heart to tell them it sounds funny.

I realise that I am a guest in their mooie land try to act like it.

Sucking off sweaty truckers in Rotterdam is very well paid, there is even a union to ensure overtime and pension contributions are paid.
