Feeling Frivolous

Dear all,

I’m feeling a little frivolous today. A little indulgent. So today I’m going to share some examples of English gone slightly wrong …

A headline from the pages of The Gulf News: “Innovative managers learn themselves”

A notice from the Abu Dhabi Municipality posted in The Khaleej Times: “Wrongly parked vehicle hurdle the work to collect the garbage from site by the special garbage collecting trucks.”

More from The Gulf News: “Law to check callous pedestrians proposed” – the article proceeded to talk about “careless” pedestrians. Let’s hope they got a new subeditor!

And an advertisement for an automated attendance recording system: no more buddy punching
