Lost in Translation

Half of my clients are non-native English speakers. I'm advising one such client on U.S. Logistics.

 

A recent message contained this phrase: "Some rent shelves in their whorehouse." I'm sure they do.

In a novel I just sent to my editor, a fellow who is the bane of the Police Chief's existence pulls into the police headquarters parking lot just as the Chief is pulling out of a parking spot and is stung iin a very inconvenient place by a bee. The Chief T-bones the man's car; on hearing that he himself was the only one injured, and the city had to pay  the man for his junker, the Chief had a mild stroke.

 

The man decides the leave town with his girlfriend, and buys a used hearse. He throws a mattress in the back and calls it an RV. They arrive at a seaside campsite, and everybody is intrigued with the hearse. He offers rides to nowhere for two, throws  in cheap bottle of champagne and two glasses, and charges $200 an hour. He has his career ahead of him..
