Man confuses English word for a Hindi swear word
I couldn’t stop laughing after this… by u/stardeviljv in delhi
A Reddit user explained that the incident occurred while he was having a WhatsApp conversation with his account manager.
“I was chatting with my account manager, he asked me for an invoice for GST verification. I couldn’t stop myself from laughing after I realised that he mistook the English word “Sale” with the word “S***e” (which is considered an abusive word in Hindi), it was embarrassing,” he wrote alongside a screenshot of his WhatsApp conversation.
The image depicts the man requesting a specific invoice from the Reddit user and saying that the previous one he supplied was inaccurate. The Reddit member responds, “Sale invoice chahiye ya purchase invoice [Do you want a sale invoice or a purchase invoice?].”
The man apologised in the end
The man gets the term “sale” mixed up and swiftly begs the Reddit member not to use swear words. The chat concludes with the Reddit member apologising and the man expressing his confusion.
