These four classified ads appeared in a local newspaper on four consecutive days. The last three hopelessly trying to correct the first day’s mistake.
MONDAY: For sale – SK Shah has a sewing machine for sale. Phone 2555-0707 after 7PM
and ask for Mrs Mani who lives with him cheap.
TUESDAY: Notice: We regret having erred in SK Shah’s ad yesterday. It should have read, “One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 2555-0707 and ask for Mrs Mani, who lives with him after 7PM.”
WEDNESDAY: Notice: SK Shah has informed us that he has received several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in the classified ad yesterday. The ad stands correct as follows: “For sale – SK Shah has a sewing machine for sale. Cheap. Phone 2555-0707 after 7PM and ask for Mrs Mani who loves with him.”
THURSDAY: Notice: I, SK Shah, have no sewing machine for sale. I smashed it. Don’t call 2555-0707 as I have had the phone disconnected. I have not been carrying on with Mrs Mani. Until yesterday she was my housekeeper but she quit.
