When young Malaysians go abroad to seek knowledge, they are often very enthusiastic. They brave themselves to finally practise the language they have so long learnt: the English language. Mr. D and I were watching TV together tonight and we began retelling the hilarious stories of our friends' first-time incidents in the UK. One is about dear Meor , Mr. D's friend while the other is regarding my friend, Amin (names obviously changed). Here goes:
Setting: at the counter in the bank. Meor is withdrawing some cash.
Teller: How would you like your money?
Meor: Yes, I like my money very much.
*I hope I don't need to explain what the expected response should be.
Setting: at the post office.
Amin: Can I have some stamps please?
Attendant: Where to?
Attendant: First class or second class?
Amin: Third class!
** Within the UK, you have the option of buying first class OR second class stamps. First class costs a few pennies more but should arrive the destination the following day. While being cheaper, second class would get second class treatment, probably a day or two later. The Royal Mail DOES NOT have third class mails.
So, again I plead, PLEAAAASSSSEEE ask if you're ever in doubt.
