Malaysian Ingris

Malaysian Ingris This is one of my favourite anecdotes. It never fail to tickle me. 1. An employee applied for leave for a “bercukur ceremony” of his baby son (shaving his son’s head rites). As I want to shave my son's head , please leave me for two days.” 2. Another employee’s daughter is getting married and he applied for leave. “As I am marrying my daughter , please grant a week's leave..” 3. Another employee applied for leave, as his mother-in-law has just died. “As my mother-in-law has expired and I am only one responsible for it , please grant me 10 days leave.” 4. Another applied for ½ a day’s leave for a burial rite. “Since I've to go to the cremation ground at 10 o-clock and I may not return , please grant me half day casual leave” 5. A sick employee applied for leave. “I am suffering from fever , please declare one-day holiday.” 6. A sick student applied for a day’s leave from the Headmaster. “As I am studying in this school I am suffering from headache. I request you to leave me today” 7. Another sick student applied for leave. “As my headache is paining , please grant me leave for the day.” 8. A Clerk wrote in his covering letter. “'I am enclosed herewith...” 9. Another Clerk wrote….. “Dear Sir, with reference to the above , please refer to my below...” 10. An employee whose wife is sick applied for leave. "My wife is suffering from sickness and as I am her only husband at home I may be granted leave.” 11. A well wisher …… “I am well here and hope you are also in the same well." 12. A candidate responded to a job advertisement. “This has reference to your advertisement calling for a ' Typist and an Accountant - Male or Female'... As I am both, for the past several years and I can handle both with good experience , I am applying for the post.”

    2."How do you do?" Someone once asked. And an Iban boy replied "I do very well."

    3. An English D.O said "Well well let's see." The Office Boy answered "You go well to see?"
