I recently ordered a few bicycle parts from a Taiwanese seller on ebay and the box took well over 2 weeks to arrive. Honestly, I'd forgotten about it, so it's not like I was gonna give the dudes negative feedback, but the seller was obviously worried I would, so they included a note in the box. I could not stop laughing when I was reading it.

Listen, I know it's frowned upon the PC crowd to make fun of people who speak/write English badly, but since I am one of those people, I thought it'd be OK. English is my third language, so I know all about being made fun of for mispronouncing words and for getting grammar slightly wrong.

That being said, the letter below is pretty funny, so enjoy it for what it is.

"utmost sincerity"? - Tisk, tisk! Looks like someone's been using babelfish.

Like my 11th-grade English teacher used to say: "For good communication, mind your punctuation!"

The present "Chainstay protector" was, in fact, in the box.

I doubt I'll take you guys up on the offer to "service" me. Thank you very much. I do wonder, however, how many friends I have "in the worldwide."
