lucu, seorang rakan baru sahaja realisasikan satu perkara kepada aku..
Raya tahun depan, tak dapat dah aku nak mintak duit raya (harap2 sudah bekerja masa ini)
jadi tahun ini tebal muka sket, mintak duit raya..huhu~
maybe its just me, but i feel irritated, sort of, when people talk funny english..and by mean of funny is...erm..how should i put it into word...
talk with error u would expect came from a primary kid....seriously..
bukan nak berkata yang bahasa jajahan aku hebat, tapi aku rasa macam mahu sahaja betulkan mereka2 yang sering kali buat kesalahan2 yang tak munasabah..
past tense, future tense and what not, we probably should have it under our belt right about now. i mean, we've only been learning the darn language for at least the last 12 years..ok, im not dissing at all mind you, im just referring to people who are going to be professionals one day. engineers, public officials and what not.
and what's worse, is that some of these people, some of em, like to talk in front of people , in formal events!! wargh!(i call them mic-hoggers, cannot see a mic on a stand, unattended) do u realize your speaking funny english to the masses, as a representative of us all!!
ok, i appreciate the effort, but heck, i feel like i want to go bury my face somewhere..
try test yourself. write an essay in Microsoft Word or something. If u have a lot of green squiggly lines here and there, they are there not for decorations my friend. Seriously, and the software is not bugged either..so dont kid yourself. the occasional typo is forgivable, but lines like:
"I thinking that maybe we should expanding the company"
"The plan is to taking over the country"
u think the boss will take you seriously after that line?
and remember the phone interview between al-jazeera and one of our minister? yeah, an elected minister, elected official, representing Malaysia!
seriously, even if he was right in his argument, the point did not make such an impact. I am sorry, but that is the truth.
we want our kids to speak proper english in the future, but we're talking like hillbillies..no offense..
hypocritical. im writing with jumbled up structures,and here i am giving lectures on proper usage of english. *dush2*
