The office boys in my office are hilarious bunch. I think they are trying to brush up their English so, they always try to speak English whenever they have the chance. Somehow or rather, their effort always sent us into fits of laughter.
Office boy #1
He was walking by the photocopy machine and there was a colleague standing there, obstructing his way. Instead of saying, excuse me… he said, “Can I passed away?”
The colleagues sitting nearby fell off their chairs and laughed non stop… it’s direct translation from Malay – “Boleh saya tumpang lalu?”
Office boy #2
OB#2: Ada orang ah complain itu monster terlalu kecil lah. I cakap sama dia, monster besar kah, monster kecik ka… asalkan boleh pakai, cukup lah!!!!
*Monster here is actually the computer “monitor”. He said monster. LOL!!
Office boy #3:
OB#3: I am going out to buy survivor lah!
Admin: Ah??? Apa Survivor??
OB #3 : Cenderamata lah!
Admin: Adoi!!! Souvenir lah… apa survivor ni??
LOL.. you don’t get this working in multinational company! I love local companies’ sense of humour.
