Something totally OT, to make you smile.
Under the rest of what, I wonder???
Politically Incorrect Joke Alert. I know absolutely wonderful people who grew up speaking Bengal &/or Hindi. I mean no offense to anyone, but am aware of many times when I have been frustrated by language issues, especially when dealing with call centers IMHO. Just don't read if you'll be too offended.
Sanjeep (from SaquaroSpirit's post, see the tie-in?) interviewed for a job at the call center.
As a final question, the interviewer said, "Sanjeep, use the English words yellow, green, and pink in a sentence."
Sanjeep thought. The interview went well, and Sanjeep thought hard about this important sentence. Sanjeep thought about the functions of the job at the call center.
Sanjeep brightened and said, "I know! The telephone rings, Green Green Green and I Pink it up, and I say 'Yellow, this is Sanjeep, how can I help you?' "
Yeah, possibly we've all talked with Sanjeep....

We're in Trouble
We're in Trouble!
The population of this country is 327 million.
76 million are retired.
That leaves 251 million to do the work.
There are 48 million people who are permanently disabled.
Which leaves 203 million to do the work
There are 74 million children younger than 6
Which leaves 129 million to do the work
There are 95.2 million children and young adults in school.
Which leaves 33.8 million to do the work.
At any given time, there are roughly 4 million people on vacation
Which leaves 29.8 million to do the work
Of this there are 15 million employed by the federal government, not including the military.
Leaving 14.8 million to do the work.
2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with North Korea and the Middle East.
Which leaves 12 million to do the work.
Take from that total the 10.8 million people who work for state and city Governments.
And that leaves 1.2 million to do the work.
At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.
Leaving 1,012,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 1,011,998 people in prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.
And there you are,
Sitting on your ass,
At your computer, reading jokes.
Nice. Real nice.

The Amazing Salty and Roselle
We all probably won't get too many calls from the call centers. At least ten days.
Tomorrow starts the festival Ganesh Chaturthi. I say this with the utmost respect. It's a beautiful Hindu celebration.
The bad thing is my mom won't have anyone to chat with from India.
Whahahaha!!! Ten jew berry mud for this post.
Babi Pangang met lijst (lice instead of rice, lijst in Dutch means frame) ...sambal bij? (do you want sambal with it) Ordering something at a Dutch Chinese/Indonesian restaurant. Simply lovely and totally accepted.
Funny also...my brother was visiting China with a friend. While wanting to order, in an off the counter kind of restaurant, first question was. "Who is your group leader"....hahahaha...would love to have seen my brother's face.....huhhhhh.....no leader, no group.....people behind the counter kind of panicking.....
LOL.....cute and funny.
My motto: een dag niet gelachen is een dag niet geleefd. (A day without laughter is a day wasted)
Ok, call me dense.... but, could you explain what that means?
The group leader would be bilingual and already prepped to translate the orders as a function of their job. Not the OP, but I've noticed this happening with international travelers in the US.
No bilingual group leader to wrangle the meal orders means a very long & frustrating time for staff & patrons.
jmhExperience ymmv lrr
Charge filed after Rolla woman found naked at playground
You can't make this stuff up.
@Filly , I think you'll like this story?
IMO you are far from dense. I think @Laughing explained it very well.
Oh, got it! And thanks, Laughing!
