A few sentences from life


Nobody goes to that restaurant, because it is too crowded.

Don't go near the water, till you have learned how to swim.

The man who wrote such a stupid sentence, can not write at all.

If you get this message, call me, and if you don't get it, don't call.

ADVERTISEMENT: Are you an analphabet? Write a letter and we will send you free of charge instructions how to undo it

Whoever thought these up wasn't thinking.

True story. A weather reporter on the air here (about a year ago):

"There is some heavy electronic interference in the air, so it may be that you're not receiving any signal on your t.v. right now. If that's the case, don't change the channel, because it will go away in a minute."
