Euphemism Watch

A lot of announcements in Indonesia are written like a doctor breaking the news to his patient who's beyond medical help. I received an announcement four days ago, about the office network connection. It said, "...outbound internet access WOULD NOT HAVE MUCH DISTURBANCE..."

However, in the last paragraph it added, "Let's pray and hope that in the near future we can enjoy the Internet access again..."

That was the time when accessing a yahoo mail took 10 seconds. Today, it takes 10 minutes. Definitely NOT MUCH DISTURBANCE. Because there isn't much activity either.


YOUR LIFE SUCKS! Sorry, we just ran out of euphemisms.
