Actually my speech is worst than my writing, indeed because of my "deficiency" in speech I created smiles on others faces.
I worked in a hotel mainly catered for backpackers. There was once tourist who casually asked me: "What are you working as?". I replied "Accounts". He then looked at me in an amazing look as if I just told him a an incredible news". He reconfirmed my reply. I nodded my head. He burst out laughing and followed by my colleague at the front desk where we were at. I was taken aback and clueless on why I had done. Then he joked "why's a cow in the hotel doing?". I replied: "Doing Accounts lah". Both of them laughed pretty loudly. My colleague knew I was still in the blurred state, unsure of what the laughter was all about. My colleague then corrected my pronunciation from "A cow"( ey kou) to "Accounts" (uh-kount). Then I realised he had mistaken I was joking with him that I was "Working as a cow doing a cow". I laughed too. It made senses in my occuption. Whenever I was asked on my occuption, I will tell them "A cow". Because I work within deadlines and slogging like mad during weekly and monthly accounts closing, does my job scope resembles "A cow"?..lols.
