Is there any merit to "Angry 'on' you"?

Currently where I live there are almost ZERO English native speakers. I love that though. Not because I seek the attention of being the only native speaker around but because it gives me the perfect opportunity to learn the other language with a native perspective. I hear more and more people trying to offer the phrase, *I am angry **on** you* or other flavours of this such as *I am surprised **on** you* etc. My question is, could this be considered good English as opposed to grammar (which normally go hand in hand)? I understand the meaning behind it of course and I **like** the mental imagery of how someone can feel the possibility to place a weight _on top_ of you based on their disappointment and so on. Should I correct them or keep enjoying their broken English for my own personal entertainment ?
