Quinte, On. real estate agent: The Importance of Proper Communication.

The Importance of Proper Communication.

Perhaps you have seen this video already, perhaps not.

I laughed pretty hard when I saw it, so I thought it was worth sharing. I tried to work it into a snappy blog post about the importance of proper communication, but everything I came up with sounded silly and was just an obvious attempt to showcase this video.

If you have already seen it (as about four million of you have), then my apologies, if you haven't already, then just enjoy.

What are you sinking about?? Oh, that's hysterical. I hadn't seen this, thanks for sharing.

Malcolm, this fits in with the Chinese thinking that when we was sent off for supplies he heard go get us some suprise.  Language is funny.

Thanks everybody for stopping by and commenting. I'm glad that some of you hadn't seen it before. I still get a chuckle out of it myself.

Hi Malcolm - I'm another one who hadn't seen the video. I too found it funny, as my wife is German and often comes up with some strange words or doesn't quite "get" the gist of the English language!

That's hilarious! Hopefully the unsinkable didn't happen to the boat! Reminds me of the saying that went viral on Youtube 10 years back, "All Your Base Are Belong to Us".

Malcolm - this definitely illustrates the seriousness of proper communications, knowing and understanding the language
