Every now and again I receive something like this and just want to share it with everyone. I hope all my readers have a big grin on their faces at the end of this conversation!
This would be hilarious, if it weren’t so true ………
In order to continue getting-by in America , 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……
