The Week's Best E-Mail
This week's funniest e-mail is actually pretty old but still hilarious nonetheless. Thank you, Lesia, a.k.a. Southernwriter!
By the way, it did, in fact, start snowing after I got to work yesterday, with icky little ice pellets thrown in for good measure. Boss Lady was still snowed/iced in at home from the last snow, so we shut down the Fiery Pit before noon and headed home for a snow day.
Wishing you guys a Wonderful Wednesday and a ... Happy Hump Day!
Following is a telephone conversation between a hotel guest and room service at a hotel in Asia. The call was recorded and later published in the Far East Economic Review. This will crack you up! You need to read this aloud (for full effect). Just say any unfamiliar words phonetically. It's amazing, but you will understand what "Tenjuberrymud" means by the end of the conversation. This was nominated for best e-mail of 1999.
