We often hear strange snippets of conversation as we walk through public spaces.When was the last time  you overheard so interesting, ridiculous, or disturbing, you really wanted to know what it was all about?

My brother Misbah, was traveling to Comilla from Chittagong, he overheard a passenger telling his friend there was a job opening in one of the Tea Estates.

He told my brother Rafique  about the job opening,  Rafique was looking for a job, he sent an application to the Tea Board. After a few days he received a letter from the boss of the company to come for an interview.

Rafique was delighted, he left Comilla to go to Chittagong for the interview. He met the boss of the company, who received him cordially, after asking him some questions, he was told they will send him a letter if he was selected.

After waiting for a couple of weeks my brother received a letter from the company boss that he was hired for the job!

365 days Writing Prompt: HA ha ha

Tell us a joke knock–knock joke, long story with an unexpected punchline, great zinger— all jokes are welcome.

There was a passenger aboard a bus, he didn’t know the local language except a few words, he thought the few words he knew would be quite sufficient for him.

As he was thinking he noticed his stop was not too far, he pondered about the two words he knew, one was “Girega” , meant fall and “hum” meaning I, feeling confident and proud of himself, he approached the driver, he looked out his stop was close and he didn’t make his move yet i.e didn’t tell the driver   his stop was close and that’s where he wanted to get off. 

 In   a moment of panic he yelled “hum girega” meaning I will fall.

The bus driver tried to calm him down and replied,”Nahin Babu tum nahin girega” meaning, ” No sir you won’t fall.”

This dialogue went on for a minute or two, realizing that he would miss his stop, the passenger jumped off the bus!

This is the first month of the year 2013. Life for most is getting more and more challenging. Stress,unhealthy food,keeping up with the Jones’ seems to be the order of the day,month,year.I thought since I’m idle at home,I can try to think about some of my experiences and cheer up any one who is interested to read this.

Here it goes: One fine gentleman was riding on a train,he wanted to use the wash room,when he opened the door,the mirror on the wall confused him.Although he saw himself,he thought it was someone else.He came out immediately.A few minutes later he went in and saw the same person i.e himself.He came out again,after a few times,he told himself,what the heck,I’ll use the washroom.When he saw the same image. “He murmured ,it’s okay he belongs to my department.”

One day I went to see the Madame Tussauds Wax museum in London. As I was walking up the stairs,I saw two policemen in one corner,I was about to ask for direction when one of my friends yelled out. “Did you think they were real?” I quickly turned around and pretended I didn’t hear them.

One of our relatives asked my brother, “How is your middle sister?” He was fuming with anger ,he said: “She is my real sister.”

Once we went to a boutique store in Chicago,I asked my brother-in-law to pick a shirt. He picked one and quickly put it back.I asked him,why he did that,this is what he said :’The word boutique or something is on the label,I don’t want it.’

Once a gentleman was visiting London,on the flight there was a passenger trying to tell him something in English. He did not understand what he said, he quickly got his tucked in shirt out. He wanted to say he was a Pakistani.The passenger thought he was trying to pick a fight,he took out his shirt too. Luckily for both of them,the flight attendant came to their rescue.
