comment “Butcher shops” sell meat products, what is the name of a shop that sells cheese and ice cream?
Simply the dairy would suffice, in my experience, in upstate New York and Pennsylvania, when referring to a Byrne Dairy or Turkey Hill— a shop that sold dairy products (historically). A dairy bar was specifically a place that also served ice cream or other dairy goods, as with the Cornell Dairy Bar and the UNH Dairy Bar.

comment bumped vs faced
None of the example sentences you provide would be idiomatic English, and some could be interpreted in rather unintended ways— bumped to some problem might mean you danced to it, and bumped with my friend might mean you had sexual relations with them. If dictionary examples are insufficient, I would try looking through Google Books to understand better how these words are used. Our sister site for English Language Learners may also be of interest.

comment Is there a kind of “official” dictionary for the English language?
You'll need to specify which Oxford dictionary; they publish many, for different purposes, for different audiences, and I do not think any of the Oxford dictionaries of American English are necessarily more authoritative than the American Heritage Dictionary, for example.

comment Does “The UK” mean the state or its citizens?
The offense is not necessarily caused by your referring to one or the other. If the UK citizen were a supporter of the current government, he or she might naturally be offended, or even someone more broadly patriotic might feel defensive about an attack on their identity.
