comment What is the exact meaning of “kaizen”?
I made a little addition to point out that this is a little more than a pure translation. It might not be enough to appease the other voters, but feel free to change it if you like!

comment What does じいつにくうだらない mean?
Sure! I edited the question a little bit to make it less of a "translate this" question as those get some negative attention here. Feel free to change it if you don't like my wording.

comment What does じいつにくうだらない mean?
So these words were written this way? If so that is some very important context that will change how many people interpret the question.

@Rilakkuma I do see a どうぞ variation listed on this ビジネスマナー site. With regard to 致します, would you say it's best to use that with a professor over します?

I agree that it's probably most often negative, but even if you look on the video provided in the OP the guy uses 今日は良いことだらけだ

comment How does one give directions in Japanese (e.g. to a cab driver)?
@istrasci at the time it was asked it had a negative score, and I assumed that it would be better received if it were more specific. Since the asker specifically mentioned going to her house, I suggested making it about phrasing that. Just a suggestion though, free to be ignored!
