This is a hoot .... sad, because it is TRUE . but a hoot!!!! By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND "TENJOOBERRYMUDS"...

In order to continue getting-by in America (our home land), we all need to learn the NEW English language! Practice by reading the following conversation until you are able to understand the term "TENJOOBERRYMUDS".

With a little patience, you'll be able to fit right in. Now, here goes...

The following is a telephone exchange between maybe you as a hotel guest and call room-service somewhere in the good old U S A today......

Room Service : "Morrin. Roon sirbees."

Guest: "Sorry, I thought I dialed room-service."

Room Service: " Rye. Roon sirbees...morrin! Joowish to oddor sunteen???"

Guest: "Uh..... Yes, I'd like to order bacon and eggs."

Room Service: "Ow July den?"

Finally Finglish seems to have come right out of the Oxford dictionary in comparison to this everyday English.

I can't count the number of times I've called a company customer service and had to tell the person on the other end that I couldn't understand what they were saying. Sad. But then, could be they're in a foreign country. I've been so tempted to say "how's the weather in ****** today?"

Sune, that "sounds" more like Hinglish or Punglish :rolleyes:

That's what I meant, Jaska. Finglish and Swenglish are closer to English than the examples June gave.

If you've ever called Norton Anti-Virus with questions, you'll end up talking to someone in India who sounds just like what I posted. After I asked him to repeat almost everything he said, he wouldn't speak to me again so I hung up on him.

Reminds me of a camera I bought on internet. There were parts missing, so I emailed the company the same day I got the camera. They had declared they could handle the European languages. So I wrote in Swedish. As I did send it from Finland they returned my email by saying I posted it to the wrong office. And I wrote back that it is their responsibility to pass the email to the desk where the person that can read Swedish is sitting. This time I got an answer that the person that could use Finnish had left the company so they couldn't understand what I was writing. After sending them an English response the Swedish speaking one informed me that she wasn't able to help me as I was living in Finland. After some more emails in English they informed me that as I hadn't contacted them immediately they were no longer able to send the missing parts - but I could order them!!!
After telling them I would turn to the police with all the emails they finally decided: as they wanted to show their "good service" they would send the parts.
Guess if I'm buying anything else from that place!
