Communication Is Key

"The difference between the right word and almost the right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug." ~Mark Twain

I received an email from my dad this morning and it was one that made me laugh and laugh and laugh. I suppose that is in part because I was reading it out loud in my car on my Black Berry all the while laughing. I can only imagine what people walking by were thinking...heh.

I mean absolutely no disrespect by what I am posting, just proof that good communication is key to many many things.


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 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
Guest: "Uh .. Yes, I'd like to order bacon and eggs."
Room Service: "Ow July den?"
Guest: ".... What??"
Room Service: "Ow July den?!? ... pryed, boyud, pooched?"
Guest: "Oh, the eggs! How do I like them? Sorry .. scrambled,
Room Service: "Ow July dee baykem? Crease?"
Guest: "Crisp will be fine."
Room Service: "Hokay. An Sahn toes?"
Guest: "What?"
Room Service: "An toes. July Sahn toes?"
Guest: "I ... don't think so."
RoomService: "No? Judo wan sahn toes???"

.....and you do, don't you!=
