Manel had just completed her English teacher training program and was appointed to a remote school south of Sri Lanka. After some months of teaching one fine morning she was taking a reading class. Whilst the seesion was on she suddenly noticed the national clad education officer (who likes to enter into young female teachers classes) making a brief apperance in her class room.
Impressed with the fine naration of the passage by the rural students and itching for a chat with the young lady the officer stretched his arms and asked her.
'LET ME SEE YOUR PASSAGE, MISS"
The teacher falter a bit and to the amusement of those present thus said
"SIR, IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE LET YOU SEE MY PASSAGE NOW"
Having realized the lingusitic blunder he made the EO made a quick exit promising to pass her in her viva voce.
