Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com impolite expressing that foreigners made mistakes but didn't know? And could you give the correct way to say that?.
A: One I've experienced is sometimes foreigners say "I don't care", meaning they don't have a preference either way; but depends on context and intonation (some people who are not familiar with the English intonation or have a heavy accent can sound upset or very blunt in English when they don't mean to), it could be interpreted as "I don't care about it at all/I don't even want it, don't bother me with it". A safer bet is to say "I don't mind" to avoid misunderstandings.
有时候外国人会说I don't care, 表示“随便”,但是根据语境和语气(有些人掌握不好语气,会听上去很凶),有时候会让人误以为你在说“我根本不在乎/不想要,少拿这个来烦我”。说I don't mind(我不介意)会比较保险,不会发生误解。

A: It should be "I thought it was impolite all over the world."

Verbs need to be the same tense.

"Thought" = past tense of "think"

"It's" = "it + is" or "it + has"

"Is" is the present tense of "to be." You need past tense of "to be"

"Was" is past tense of "to be"

So use "it + was"

There is no short word for "it + was"

So final sentence:

"I thought it was impolite all over the world."
