You just cant stop Laughing for every Single sentence in the letter below.
In the days when you couldn't count on a public toilet facility,an English
woman was planning a trip to India. She was registered to stay in a small
guest house owned by the local schoolmaster.
She was concerned as to whether the guest house contained a WC. In
a bathroom is commonly called a WC which stands for "Water Closet".She
to the schoolmaster inquiring of the facilities about the WC.
The school master, not fluent in English, asked the local priest if he
the meaning of WC. Together they pondered possible meanings of the
and concluded that the lady wanted to know if there was a "Wayside
near the house . . . a bathroom never entered their minds.
So the schoolmaster wrote the following reply:
Dear Madam, I take great pleasure in informing you that the WC is
located 9 miles from the house. It is located in the middle of a grove of
pine trees, surrounded by lovely grounds. It is capable of holding 229
people and is open on Sundays and Thursdays. As there are many
people expected in the summer months, I suggest you arrive early. There
however, plenty of standing room. This is an unfortunate situation
especially if you are in the habit of going regularly.
It may be of some interest to you that my daughter was married in the
as it was there that she met her husband. It was a wonderful event. There
were 10 people in every seat. It was wonderful to see the ex-pressions on
their faces.We can take photos in different angle. My
wife, sadly, has been ill and unable to go recently. It has been almost a
year since she went last, which pains her greatly.
You will be pleased to know that many people bring their lunch and make
day of it. Others prefer to wait till the last minute and arrive just in
time! I would recommend your ladyship plan to go on a Thursday as there is
an organ accompaniment. The acoustics are excellent and even the most
delicate sounds can be heard everywhere.
The newest addition is a bell which rings every time a person enters.We
are holding a bazaar to provide plush seats for all since many feel it is
long needed. I look forward to escorting you there myself and seating you
in a place where you can be seen by all.
With deepest regards,
The woman never visited India!!!!
