Office Humour

May 21, 2011

I was again at it, explaining to someone how India is more like entire Europe when it comes to languages and not like a dialect-ridden Germany.

I get upset beyond measure when I say “we have several languages in India” and pat! comes a remark “yeah… we too have Bayerisch and North German, Hessisch…, I know, the dialects”. So, to put a very strong point forth, I added “No…. they are real languages! You know, I can understand my husband’s language, but I cannot read or write it”.

My colleague quipped – “Aber da bist du weiter als ich. Ich kann zwar die Sprache meiner Frau lesen aber verstehen tue ich nicht!

(“You are way ahead of me. I can read my wife’s language, but I don’t understand her”).
