The real meaning of "It's been so lovely to see you"

On Thursday night, some friends gave me a lift home.  We were chatting away in the car.  One of them then said: "Well, it's been so lovely to see you", which I took, correctly, to mean: "Please get out of our car now, we want to drive home and then go to bed"!

It struck me as so bizarre that people don't just say what they really mean!
