Uncle, Bonjour white bread.

I usually buy bonjour white bread.
Its the cheapest what.
(bonjour, this is your chance. Would you like me to endorse your bread?)

The sophisticated people say bon jour.
But i have heard some wierd pronounciations of it.
I can't act smart when i buy it.
I have to say "Uncle (their pronounciation.)"
If i try to say it properly, they think i'm wierd.

I have to say
1.Bon Joe
2.Bon Joo
3.Bon Jior
4.Bun joe (how can it be bun? u can get the french wrong, but the bon?)
5.Bon Jwa

No.5 is my favourite.
How can it be jwa.
I've only heard it once.
When i heard it, i nearly burst out laughing.

I bet i'd laugh if a provision shop guy whos english sucks asks if i want
"bon jure" while saying bon-zhoor
Which according to my friend, is the correct pronounciation.

My parking lot....

Today, my mom went out.
She came back and was greeted with the sight of a motorcycle parked in her lot.
Small bike parking in big lot.
So my mom goes and complains to the guard, constantly repeating
"where am i supposed to park my car?"
And unknowingly, she had parked her car in the neighbours lot.
Brilliant thinking.

But the biker must have balls the size of watermelons.
He came out, got on his bike, relaxed.
My mom comes out and shouts
"Excuse me thats my lot."
She probably expected a sorry.
But that watermeloned balled biker said
"Thank you, its alright. I'm leaving now."
Respect earned, and deserved.
He definetely deserves it for the way he walks as if my mom should thank him.

If i do something wrong, and i tell my mom "Thank you, its alright."
I can start applying for a HDB flat or a place in a children's home.
