Do We Understand Each Other?

Gosh! I love music !!!. Music speaks to many, but with a language only unique to one! Many hear, one listens! Oh! Let us get our feet firmly down to the ground now...

Sometimes, when we speak to each other, even when using the same, common language of the tongue, there still bound to be misunderstandings. What more if we were to speak in different languages ? That is why it is very important to have a single, common National Language. Common language is the key to Nation building.

We want to understand each other, don't we?

Enjoy this, another one from my email vault.. he..he..he..

George: all right! Light with sugar. Now get on the phone.

(Condi picks up the phone.)

Condi: Rice here.

George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too.

And perhaps that was how Mr. George Bush reached some of the decisions during his tenure as the President of U.S.A.

And if I remember it correct, this one was a part of an exam's question, long time ago :-

An army base camp commander received specific order from the H.Q.'s Commanding Officer to report any activity of the enemy prior to taking any action. This was during the Japanese invasion of Malaya.

The scout unit spotted the movements of Japanese's soldiers and went back to the camp to report. Upon getting the information, the base Commander promptly radioed the H.Q., informing:-

"Enemy in-sight, Sir !"

After a short while, the H.Q. issued an order for the base Commander to retreat to Singapore, abandoning the camp by burning everything, not letting the enemy to make use any of the facilities or supplies left behind.

Even though puzzled by the order, the base Commander went ahead to carry out the order.

Only much later that  the base Commander learned the H.Q.'s Commanding Officer thought he had heard this:-

"Enemy inside, Sir !"
