English as a foreign language

Posted June 22nd, 2010

If you're a regular reader here you'll have noticed how we've been whizzing all over the world looking for beautiful new products. We always look forward to receiving follow-up emails from new suppliers whose grasp of English isn't quite perfect. Recent examples have included such wonderful sign-offs as:

"Thank you, sir, and may you have a good harvest."

"I respect you, kindly. Please do the needful."

But we were particularly intrigued when our Steve (aka Head of Drawings) sent us a picture of a sign he'd seen in an airport.

And then there was the bus we saw as we arrived to see our bone inlay beds in India.

If you've got any gems of your own, do send them in. We'd love it. x
