English, is it? -I
Over the past few weeks, I have had interactions with people[most of who were guys] and many points during the conversation, I was left puzzled.. I began losing grip over the English language... The thing nightmares are made of, right? Here are a few instances....
He1- I came to Chennai
Me - Ah nice, hope you had a good trip. Was it on work?
He1- I came to Chennai... Landed last evening
Me- Oh okay
He1 - Yes, here today and tomorrow.
He2 - So, what do you do for work?
Me - I am a freelance consultant... <goes on to give details>
He2- Wow, you must be rich
Me- err, cant complain. I am happy with what I make
He2- Make a..? Freelance means free no..
Me- *Smacks head on desk* . No it means I am my own boss, not an employee with any company..
Me- So, what do you do?
He3- Carrier you mean? I am into US medical billing...
Me - Career...
He3- yes, Carrier....
He3- So, you live individually or accompanied?
Me - *takes me a good few seconds to wrap my head around that question & decipher it *
I live with family.....
