Murder of English Language

Employee wrote application "Since I have to go to my village to sell my land along with my wife, please grant me one weeks leave."

Another Employee asking leave to perform daughter's wedding "As I'm marring my daughter, grant me leave"

"As my mother-in-law has expired and I'm only responsible for for it, grant ten days leave."

"As I am suffering from fever, please declare one holiday."

"My wife is sick and I'm her only husband at home, grant me leave"

A letter to principal, " Mr Principle, my headache is paining please leave me for one day"

Covering note :I'm enclosed herewith......

Another one: "Dear Sir, with reference to the above, please refer to my below....."

Letter: "I'm well here and hope you are in the same well"

An application: " This has reference to your add calling for a typist and receptionist male or female, as I am both for past 5 years & I can handle both with good experience, I am applying for the post."


  1. "Dear Sir, with reference to the above, please refer to my below....."


  2. : ) I have also read some weird applications like the ones mentioned above. The ppl who wrote them are definetly murderers of eng language.

  4. Very funny...:)))

    But it it the same if a British tries to speak Urdu or Hindi.

  5. Hahahahah...!!
    Laughter piece :D

  6. Very funny, in fact we come across such cases many times in our lives. But we have to forgive them, for they have tried to communicate to the best of their ability, and that too in a foreign language.

  7. Lol man, simply Lol. Tried hard to pick up my fav from the lot, but they are all "winners" in their own way! Hmmm, well, may be the first one, or the last. Hard to choose!

  8. "I hope you are in the same well" - hahaha!

  9. Oh yes. We have seen our own brand of English in the subcontinent, which unintentionally gets funny at times.

  10. Thank you all for hearting comments. :-D

  11. HAHA :D superb!!
    Well seriously if a person don't know how to speak or write English then he or she should speak or write in Urdu! Why people feel low in writing or speaking Urdu!
