Well hello, it is only 8.30am and I am exhausted, and my knees are shocking pain wise.

This week I have some genuine instructions displayed for English speaking visitors from businesses around the world.

Car rental place in Tokyo: “When passenger of foot heave in sight, tootle the horn. Trumpet him melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your passage then tootle him with vigor”.

On a menu of a Polish hotel: “Salad a firm's own make; limpid red beer soup with cheesy dumplings in the form of a finger; roasted duck let loose; beef rashers beaten up in the country people's fashion”.

Japanese instructions on an air conditioner: “Cooles & Heates: If you want just condition of warm in your room, please control yourself”.

In Hong Kong dress shop: “Order your summers suit, because is big rush we will execute customers in strict rotation”.

In an East African newspaper: A new swimming pool is rapidly taking shape since the contractors have thrown in the bulk of their workers.


  1. Love every one of these! Those are the best things I have read in a long long long time. Thank you Jo-Anne.

  2. I'll try to tootle the world with vigor.


  3. Well those caused me to laugh - thanks Jo-Anne.

  4. Thank you, Jo Anne for the laugh. Have a great week.

  5. I love reading these dealios, but I'm not having the limpid red beer soup...

  6. I must have a nice smile or something, because I've been to dress shops in Hong Kong and no one ever threatened to execute me.
