Just a quick post to tell you a little story about today's class - we have a thing called a COW (Comment Of the Week) where the silliest comment made by a student in class is awarded with a fluffy cow at the end of the week. I have a friend over here who we will call "Swiss Tony" as he comes from Switzerland ("oooorghh ... Schavitzerlanda" for those in London - imagine the following in "that" accent ...). We had a case in Human Resources Management about a hotel in California that was trying to resolve problems with their personal valets (a part-time quasi-butler, aka "PV" for short). Now Swiss Tony, along with many others from his region of the world, have problems pronouncing "V"s, preferring instead to pronounce "W"s. Imagine the hilarity then, when asked whether the personal valets were good for the guests, Swiss Tony replies "yes of course - the guests would love to have fun with our peewees" !!!

Incredible ... in-credible !

Had to be there maybe ... ?
