Sometimes we mean, what we say ...

24.06.2005 - 09:53 / filled under default

We don't always screw up. Sometimes, us non English speakers mean what we say ... *g*

Dennis Howlett in Loics comment's about his office under water:

When you eml'd me and said 'I've been under water' I thought you meant you'd been snowed under with work! Sometimes, the translation really is literal...!
but Loic clarifies:
everything is fine and Dennis... that is what I really meant, the rain came after.
Seems very messy, hope they get everything back working :o(
