English Is Confusing

Posted by: Gunter Nezhoda on 07/15/2013 - 11:37 PM

I'm confused about the English language. Today I drove with my girlfriend in traffic infested SinCity and said to her: "RIGHT NOW, I'm thinking, nobody in their RIGHT MIND would take a RIGHT TURN RIGHT HERE, RIGHT?"
Nicely she responds: " Right Now, I WONDER, if it is a WONDER that I have such a WONDERFUL boyfriend. ?????????????????????????????

Good grief, Gunter! All you need to understand from that is she thinks you're wonderful. That should suffice. If you didn't give her a hug and kiss for it at the time, you owe her bigtime now. lol! ; )

All I said was: " You're RIGHT!"

Hahaha! Well, if you always tell her she's right you will never have many problems. Haven't you heard the saying? Happy wife, happy life? You may not be married but the same premise still applies. lol! ; )

You think you have problems with the English language? You should visit this country some time...

Gunter, the English language still confuddles me so I use words like confuddles.

In all seriousness, German made perfect sense to me. It is logical. Not so with my native tongue.

I don't usually post long things in threads, but I love this routine. You guys have probably seen this one before. Takeoff on Abbot and Costello:

Hu's On First
(We take you now to the Oval Office.)
George: Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?
Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.
George: Great. Lay it on me.
Condi: Hu is the new leader of China.
George: That's what I want to know.
Condi: That's what I'm telling you.
George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes.
George: I mean the fellow's name.
Condi: Hu.
George: The guy in China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The new leader of China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The Chinaman!
Condi: Hu is leading China.
George: Now whaddya' asking me for?
Condi: I'm telling you Hu is leading China.
George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?
Condi: That's the man's name.
George: That's who's name?
Condi: Yes.
George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader
of China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.
Condi: That's correct.
George: Then who is in China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir is in China?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Then who is?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of
China. Get me the Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.
Condi: Kofi?
George: No, thanks.
Condi: You want Kofi?
George: No.
Condi: You don't want Kofi.
George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk.
And then get me the U.N.
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi?
George: Milk! Will you please make the call?
Condi: And call who?
George: Who is the guy at the U.N?
Condi: Hu is the guy in China.
George: Will you stay out of China?!
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the
Condi: Kofi.
George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.
(Condi picks up the phone.)
Condi: Rice, here.
George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we
should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?
