Newspaper Advertisement

Filed under: English — Yogesh Marwaha @ 14:15

These four classified advertisements appeared in a newspaper on four consecutive days. The last three hopelessly trying to correct the first day’s mistake…


For sale – Vishanth has a sewing machine for sale. Phone 98407***** after 7PM and ask for Mrs. Mani who lives with him cheap.


Notice: We regret having erred in Vishanth’s advertisement yesterday. It should have read, “One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 98407***** and ask for Mrs. Mani, who lives with him after 7PM.”


Notice: Vishanth has informed us that he has received several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in the classified advertisement yesterday. The advertisement stands correct as follows: “For sale – Vishanth has a sewing machine for sale; Cheap. Phone 98407 **** after 7PM and ask for Mrs. Mani who loves with him.”


Notice: I, Vishanth, have no sewing machine for sale. I smashed it. Don’t call 98407 ***** as I have had the phone disconnected. I have not been carrying on with Mrs. Mani. Until yesterday, she was my housekeeper but she quit!
