he (switch) she - l

Okey ....... this chunk of crap has been inspired by all the languages in the world which don't differentiate between gender... perhaps, setting an example for a good social norm, u think ??? my foot !! c'mon, u got to know the diff between him/her and he/she etc... just my opinion !! and what is my opinion worth ?? well, "my opinion and a dollar could get u coffee at the corner store".

Here is a true instance... I happen to call my friend at this research lab, and his colleague answers the call,

Me: Could i speak to _____ please ?
Chap : SHE is not there.
Me: err... I am calling for ______ .
Chap: Yes, _____. SHE left.

I mean no offense to my friends from C****, nor am i making any derogatory remarks... Every language has its own share of idiosyncrasy. For instance, my own national language, Hindi, has a contrasting peculiarity... Why in the name of God, am i supposed to categorize bicycles, buses, cars, bullock-carts etc... as male or female forms ??? Even worse, how am i supposed to remember that a bus is a female form and a truck is a male form... Agreed, that Indian roads can give them the orgasmic shivers but then it's not like they will ever reproduce... aah thats a nice thought... imagine going to a motor breeding farm instead of a ford dealer to buy a mustang !!! hmm... Motor ranches eh !!!

To be cont...

That actually reminds me of the question I always used to ask my parents when I was a kid (not that I got an answer to it, but now I atleast know its not worth getting that strange looks)...Well, again, its not in my 'NATIONAL LANGUAGE" but my 'MOTHER TONGUE'(Most of my friends/collegues here find it hard to grasp this concept of different 'tongues' though)...Well, so I used to ask them why I can say 'current vachindi but not current vachadu' and 'lorry veltundi but lorry veltundu'.... Does that mean women are important or is it the other way? Or does it mean anything at all! Oh well, what ever!
